Jean-Pierre Cassel (1932–2007)


He made his movie debut at the invitation of Gene Kelly, who cast Cassel in the 1956 Paris-filmed seriocomedy The Happy Road (1957). At least, that's what the press releases claimed; actually, the tall, elastic-faced Cassel had been plugging away in films on a minor basis since 1950. Shortly after, Cassel was perfectly cast in the naif title role ... See full bio »

Personal Quote:

[on working with Luis Buñuel on the set of The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972)] He was talking to the cameraman, and I heard them. I think he wanted me to. He was asked, "What kind of lens do I use? A 50?" "A 50. If the actor's good, put on a 75." Of course I was very good and got a close-up.
