Jean Dujardin

Jean Dujardin has become one of France’s most popular comic stars. He is most recognizable to American audiences for starring in the 2011 critically acclaimed silent film, The Artist, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor.

He started his career performing in comedy clubs in Paris and co-created the popular comedy troupe “Nous C Nous” which regularly appeared on French television’s most successful talk shows. After winning several comedy awards, he made the successful transition to the big screen with the box office comedy hit “Brice de Nice” in 2004. After several film roles and becoming one of France’s most bankable stars he was nominated for a 2007 César for Best Actor (France’s equivalent of the Academy Award) for his role as French Intelligence’s suave spy Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath aka OSS 117 in OSS 117 – CAIRO NEST OF SPIES, the first installment of Michel Hazanavicius’ spoof series based on the widely popular post-war novels and films. Since completing OSS 117 – LOST IN RIO, Dujardin has starred in the upcoming films by renowned French directors Bertrand Blier, Nicole Garcia and Guillaume Canet.
