Our friends (and content partners!) over at Funny or Die have posted this hilarious video of "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin attempting to capitalize on his newfound American celebrity.

Despite his matinee idol looks, Dujardin is a well-known comedic actor in France and his humorous chops are certainly not lost in translation here. The parody plays on the now common practice of having European stars play villains in American action movies.

So what roles do they have Dujardin auditioning for? The process starts off believably enough with an "audition" for the role of a new Bond villain before going completely off the rails into nonexistent sequels like Bridesmaids and Larry Crowne.
