He's got a couple of high-profile American movies coming out later this year (Scorsese's Wolf of Wall Street
and George Clooney's Monuments Men
), so we might get a better idea of how well he'd fit the role pretty soon. That said, I highly recommend checking out The Artist
. I know the whole "contemporary silent film" aspect turns a lot of people off of it and maybe makes it sounds like a chore to watch (the trailer certainly doesn't help it there), but it's actually highly entertaining (largely comedic) and the runtime flies by, imo.
He's also been great in the French films I've seen him in, but the big question for me is whether or not his English would be up to snuff enough for this role.
