Birthday Boy: Jean Dujardin

Just wanted to give a quick birthday shout out to recent Oscar winner Jean Dujardin who turns 40 today. While already a household name in his native France, he made has his breakthrough on this side of the Atlantic Ocean playing the charming George Valentin in the Oscar Best Picture champ The Artist. That role, that sexy accent, and his easygoing charm made me fall in love with him just a little bit. It was enough for me to check out his two OSS 117 films.

Thankfully, he seems to be trying out the Hollywood thing as he recently signed up for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. I guess the question remains... is he the villain? It IS what everyone is expecting...

  1. I'm thrilled that Jean might be in the next Scorcese film - looks like a great cast. Jean is so talented - loved both OSS films, and CA$H is very entertaining. i wish more were available to the US film fans - but most are only viewable in European DVD format. You rock, Jean, you're hilarious, gorgeous and a heartbreaker! Joyeaux Anniversaire!!


Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
