Wolf Kahler (born 26 April 1946) is a German actor.

Born in Berlin, since 1975 he has appeared in many US and UK TV and film productions. Due to his height - he is 6 feet 4 inches (1.93m) tall - sharp features, blond hair and blue eyes he is often cast in roles as Nazis or other unsympathetic German characters. Probably his most well-known role was that of Dietrich in "Raiders of the Lost Ark". Kahler's voice also appears in computer games, for example as Kaiser Vlad in Battalion Wars.

Kahler played the German Ambassador in the long-running "Ambassador's Reception" Ferrero Rocher TV advertisement, uttering the line "Excellente!". He also appears as a famous Germanic architect in US television adverts for the Kohler Company.
