I caught up to the last two episodes of 'The Inbetweeners' this morning. In one of them, Simon had to "baby-sit" with an exchange student from France.
Here's the actor who played the part, Vladimir Cosigny:
I'm putting this out there as a suggestion to casting directors - get this kid for some TV show over here in America! I think you'll find he's going to bring in a lot of female eyes to whatever show you put him in.
Here are a few suggestions:
'ENTOURAGE' - Remember "Bizarro Jerry" on 'Seinfeld'? Cosgny could be the French version of Vincent Chase, and a possible threat when it comes to landing certain roles - and women.
'GOSSIP GIRL' - He'd be perfect as a foreign exchange student, but whether he ends up with one of the girls or one of the guys....?
'VAMPIRE DIARIES' or 'TRUE BLOOD' - Perhaps as a vampire from France or even down home-grown Louisiana bloodsucker? How hard can it be to take his natural accent and fine-tune it to Cajun?
Any of the procedural shows as a possible suspect in a murder investigation would be a likely way to go, or a 'White Collar' case, a 'Leverage' caper; maybe a 'Burn Notice' client ......
Sitcoms like 'Community', 'How I Met Your Mother', '30 Rock'......
I wonder if he'll turn up in other Brit shows like 'New Tricks' or 'Doctor Who'.....?
There's a YouTube video out there of a scene from this movie "Hellphone". I don't feel right embedding it or even linking to it, but it certainly shows Cosigny would be willing to take chances in a production.
You'll find it, don't worry.....
