5 years ago today I lost one of the most important people in my life. It’s hard to believe that much has passed. She was a mentor, a second mom, and my best friend. I’ll always love and miss my grandma.
I agree with you in the respect that Jean DuJardin could not pull off the accent or properly execute Gene's dancing style, but I meant I wanted a biopic because the two look quite similar haha. I don't think we'll ever find someone perfect enough to fit the role of playing as Gene. The looks, charm, accent, talent, and presence are too rare to be found in one person. (;
Yes. If we were to ever find someone appropriate for playing Gene, I imagine he would have to come from Broadway. He would most certainly need to be a “triple threat.”
I never tire of the comparisons between these two fellows, though. I love that I can see hints of Gene in Jean. I love that they look somewhat alike!
I love Gene. I love Jean. I want to see Gene remembered and respected. I want to see Jean take on great projects that allow him to show off his talent. Jean demonstrated in The Artist that he’s got a charm reminiscent of Gene. I would love to see my favorite French guy take a biopic of my favorite Old Hollywood guy, but I don’t believe he’s the right man for the job. I wish he was, but it’s more important to me to see a man with the right dancing skills and ability to pull off the accent accept the role.
