Have any actual WW2 German officers acted in any post-WW2 films? English or Ger.language. Wonder how they would compare vs. actors if any have.

German comedian, humorist and actor Vicco von Bülow, best known as Loriot served as an Oberleutnant of Panzergrenadierregiment 3 in the 3rd Panzer Division at the eastern front. Postwar he had a supporting role in Bernhard Wicki's The Bridge (as Stabsfeldwebel Zeisler) and a minor role in The Longest Day.

Hardy Krüger and Klaus Kinski were ex-combatants who acted later in the war movies.
But none of them held officer rank
