Klaus Ziegler (played by Max von Sydow) is an art Forger who lives on Isla Verde. He is addicted to Strupo, a local liqueur made from capers.


He's a forger who's so good that galleries can mistake his work for originals made by esteemed masters. He gave Cafe Artiste a Johan Oldenveldt forgery to pay off his Strupo tab.

He later painted pictures to help Homer and Kirk's marriages. He painted a group portrait of the Van Houten family for Kirk and a perfect reproduction of Marge's destroyed sailboat painting for Homer. In return, Homer paid him in Strupo.
