Jean Dujardin Auditions for Villian Parts (as well as Oscar Votes)

The silent charmer in The Artist wants to proudly proclaim he can be funny (and speak-- even if his English is still a bit rough) in this Funny or Die ad.  

Funniest bit: "Larry Crowne...time to drown."

I do worry that many in the blogosphere have given Dujardin the reductive Roberto Benigni comparison so far, as I see none...he's sincere and delightful, not all in the irritatingly mugging variety, and hope there's more American exposure to come to him, despite the full awareness that most in the country will not have heard of him before Oscar night.
