A Superficial Critique:For a while now, the images of old hollywood actors have been dancing around in my head. It has been a source of great frustration that leading men now (though I appreciate their boyish good looks) are no match for the dignified, and gallant ones that came before them; and in turn, are hardly believable in roles in which they are cast.  It seems only a handful of working actors today are capable of evoking the emotional range that complements their outward appearance and portrayal of a character. George Clooney and Christopher Plummer are among the last that have honed this talent that greats such as Gregory Peck, Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart and Gene Kelly left behind. That being said, a newcomer to American audiences, Jean Dujardin embodies that which he represented in the film The Artist.  In his appearance alone, he recalls the essence of old hollywood glamour and magic in a way that seems effortless. In short, he fits the role to perfection and solidified casting decisions by delivering a captivating performance. Dujardin and those similar actors are who I long to see featured on screen.

'I was with this really crappy agency when I first moved to LA,' he said. 'I literally went up for two roles in a year. And I was dating a girl who worked at the agency. So I created this character, Josh Reynolds, who was an agent at Artists First. And I would call casting directors and pitch myself, and when they would call back and ask for Josh Reynolds, the girl I was dating would call me and say, 'All right, you got a call from this person.' And i would call back as the agent. I got myself a bunch of auditions.' George Clooney
