Winner of the Academy Award for Best Actor for his work in The Artist, Jean has been relegated to a series of unmemorable roles ever since. Lumière could be his time to shine (look at that pun).

Romain has been heating up French movies for over 20 years, in a wide range of comedic and dramatic roles. He's been compared to Ryan Gosling and Joseph Gordon-Levitt by the Los Angeles Times, which means U.S. audiences don't even know what they're missing.
