Need a {{Badass}} with an authentic French accent? Call for '''Jean Reno'''!

Appearing as "that French tough guy" in a number of American films (e.g ''Film/MissionImpossible'', ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}'', ''Film/{{Ronin}}'') he appeared in many French films (''Film/TheBigBlue'', ''Film/TheProfessional'', ''Film/{{Nikita}}'', ''Film/LesVisiteurs'' and its sequel and reboot, ''Film/TheCrimsonRivers'' and its sequel ''Angels of the Apocalypse'', ''Film/{{Wasabi}}'', and so on), as well as ''VideoGame/{{Onimusha}} 3: Demon Siege'' as [[InkSuitActor Jacques Blanc]]. He has recently returned to TV with ''Series/{{Jo}}''.

Provided the French dubbing of:
* The title character in ''Anime/PorcoRosso''
* Mufasa in ''Disney/TheLionKing''
* Shadow in ''Film/HomewardBoundTheIncredibleJourney''
* Le Frog in ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'' (in the original dub as well)

Also, he is '''''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'''''!!! [[http://kotaku.com/5900234/jean-reno-makes-a-great-anime-cat/gallery/1 No, seriously.]]

Oh, he was actually born in Morocco, before its independence from Spain, and only moved to France when he was seventeen. So the fact that his name is Juan (in French, Jean) Moreno (cut the first syllable and you have his artistic name) Herrera-Jimenez can make him a sort of DashingHispanic. Of course, he can also play [[FakeNationality other nationalities]] in a pinch, including a damn good ElvisPresley impersonation.
