And we're back! For our first episode of 2022, we're taking a look at the career of Hollywood's most reliable Frenchman Vincent Cassel. First rising to prominence in Mathieu Kassovitz's La Haine as macho French youth Vinz, the actor went on to establish himself as a leading heavyweight in France. Starring in films like L'Apartment, Dobermann and Brotherhood of the Wolf, Cassel was much sought after by the time his first English language role as Robin Hood in Shrek came around. From there, he made waves as the Night Fox in the latter two films of Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Trilogy, as a closeted Russian gangster in David Cronenberg's Eastern Promises and as a seductive ballet director opposite Natalie Portman in Black Swan. Cassel has acted mostly in European cinema in the last decade with some highlights including Jason Bourne, The World is Yours and Underwater.
