Watch: 'The Artist' Star Jean Dujardin Auditions for Every Villain Role
Now that he's made quite a splash in the United States garnering plenty of acclaim and awards for his turn as George Valentin in The Artist, the time has come for French actor Jean Dujardin to take on a big blockbuster role. As this video so bluntly, and quite accurately, points out, it's a tradition for a big European actor to play the villain in any number of spy/action thrillers. Thankfully, Dujardin's representatives have set him up on a whole slew of auditions that would see him facing off with the likes of James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, Ethan Hunt, Jason Bourne, the Spy Kids and even those pesky Bridesmaids too. Watch below!

Honestly, it would be nice to see Dujardin take on a villain role like this, but when you think about it, that's about the most cliche thing he could do now. Thankfully, Dujardin is still sticking to his roots and already has plans to reteam with The Artist producer for yet another film in his native tongue. However, I'm sure we'll be seeing Dujardin show up in more American films very soon. The other likely turn he could make is as some sort of dashing and debonair French man who will sweep an American girl off her feet in The City of Lights. It could be a straight-up romance or even a romantic comedy. The possibilities are just endless!
