Meet Arnold Vosloo, the Actor Who Plays Jost Van Der Byl in 'Jack Ryan'


Arnold Vosloo makes a fleeting appearance on Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, yet he succeeds in stealing the show. 

In the past, he featured in cult-classic horror movies like The Mummy — playing Imhotep, the former high priest who wreaks havoc on the town of Hamunaptra in a bid to take revenge on its people for having buried him alive — and The Harrowing, a hair-raising flick about the darkest secrets of a hospital. 

Ready to find out more about Arnold Vosloo, Jack Ryan Season 2's best side character?

Jack Ryan revolves around a CIA agent determined to save his country, and Arnold Vosloo is a Season 2 standout in the plot.

Now, the topic of choice might lead you into thinking that Arnold is playing one of the bad guys. He has a solid record in bringing some of the most heinous, gut-wrenchingly repulsive characters to life — he showed us just what an annoyed mummy is capable of, after all —  which makes him the most-suited candidate to portray the No. 1. threat to national security.
