He and Ilia Volok have both played Russian antagonists for Harrison Ford in two movies. In Air Force One (1997), Volokh and Divoff both played Russian terrorists who tried to kill Ford's character of "The President of the U.S.". In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008), they both played Russians who also attacked Ford's character of "Indiana Jones".

Andrew Divoff in Alien Desperados (1994)

Andrew Divoff appears as a post-plastic-surgery "Karakurt" in a few episodes of The Blacklist (2013). While he does not act until a later episode, his likeness first appears on the show in a photograph shown in episode The Blacklist: The Djinn (No. 43) (2015). This is intriguing because one of Andrew's most well known roles features him playing "The Djinn" in Wishmaster (1997) (he also continued the role in Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies (1999)).
