Wednesday Morning Man: Romain Duris!
I took in All the Money in the World a few weeks ago and was very impressed with the performance of French actor Romain Duris.
The 43-year-old actor Duris is best known for his role as the French exchange student Xavier Rousseau in L’Auberge Espagnole and The Russian Dolls. He played a thug in The Beat That My Heart Skipped and has played a variety of roles ranging from gangsters as in Dobermann through romantic leads, Heartbreaker to action heroes in Arsène Lupin.
Before going into acting, he started an acid-jazz band where he was a drummer. He was noticed in the street by a casting director whilst waiting in a line in 1993 and was offered a part in the 1994 Cédric Klapisch film Le péril jeune.
