"The Artist" star Jean Dujardin is creating his own buzz ahead of the Oscars with a sketch on Funny or Die. The French actor is seen doing an "audition" for villain roles in big but imaginary Hollywood sequels such as "Die Hard 5", "We Bought a Zoo Too" and "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer 2".
The video aims to highlight the common practice of hiring big European actors for spy/action thrillers. Dujardin started with the predictable flicks like "James Bond", "Sherlock Holmes" and "The Bourne Identity" but ended up doing other quirky projects like "Bridesmaids 2" and "Tyler Perry's Madea's French Vacation".
Dujardin is nominated for Actor in a Leading Role in "The Artist" at the upcoming Oscars. The silent movie itself is pocketing 10 nominations in total including Best Picture. Winners would be revealed on Sunday, February 26.
