Melvil Poupaud in Time to Leave

More Frenchy goodness this way! Our longtime reader, Joe has made these delectable caps of French actor Melvil Poupaud. Well, like I said, I watch like two French films a year so any kind of help is much appreciated! As I don’t know much about this piece of Parisian mancandy, I’ll try my best to quote Joe’s words without ruining them too much. So, Melvil is one of his husbands (I’m not fighting you over him but I’m a little jealous) and he loves his mix of “Eric Bana and Gattaca-era Jude Law with dash of Vincent Cassel”.

I first noticed him in “Broken English”, a great indie starring Parker Posie (love her!). Unfortunately not a whole lot of shirtlessness on Melvile’s part in that — in fact he’s pretty much in the same t-shirt, jeans, and blazer for the majority of the movie.

But I recently saw him in “Time to Leave” in which he plays a gay fashion photographer who struggles with saying goodbye to family and friends after finding out he has terminal cancer. In addition to killing the role, he (surprisingly) gets all kinds of sexy in this movie and has a hawt/sad love scene with his co-star. I’ve provided some caps from “Broken English” and “Time to Leave”. Poupaud was also recently in the shiteous ‘Speed Racer’ remake with Emile Hirsch. He was just as sexy in that, but—sadly—fully clothed the whole time. Enjoy.

I’m still working on my charms (and some voodoo) to make him a guest author. Also, check out Joe’s superbly witty blog here.

From “Broken English”. Damn it, he’s CUTE.
