Dujardin started his career as a stand-up comedian, developing his talents in a number of key roles in comedy series and films.

There aren’t many actors who can claim to have appeared in approximately 170 films in 50 years, but there’s one French actor who can—Gérard Depardieu. His first major appearance in 1974 was as Jean-Claude in the comedy Les Valseauses (“Going Places”). He went on to win two César Awards for Best Actor: In 1981 for his role as Bernard Granger in The Last Metro, and In 1991 for his role as Cyrano de Bergerac in the film of the same name. In our Depardieu special, enjoy the 1973 classic L’Affair Dominici, the 2010 historical comedy drama L’Autre Dumas, and the 2013 comedy Turf.
