Vincent Crochon (born 23 November 1966 in Paris, France), known as Vincent Cassel, is a French actor.

He is the son of actor Jean-Pierre Cassel and chief editor Sabine Cassel-Lanfranchi. Since his Star-Making Role in La Haine, he has become one of the most prominent actors of modern French cinema. Much like his father, he is also known for playing in English language films, such as Ocean's Twelve, Ocean's Thirteen, Eastern Promises and Black Swan.

Throughout his career, he has put his eerie looks, intense Icy Blue Eyes stare and acting skills to good use, playing a sizeable collection of villainous, Ax-Crazy, deviant, jerkass, mood-swinging or simply weird characters and, alternatively, a good chunk of dashing characters, occasionally hamming it up with an outrageous accent in non-French productions. A lover of Brazil, he practices Capoeira, which has come in handy for his roles on occasion. Oh, and... he has also played James Bond... in a Brazilian comedy short. He's frequently worked with his friend Mathieu Kassovitz.

He was married to Monica Bellucci from 1999 to 2013. Since August 2018, he is married to French model Tina Kunakey, who is thirty years his junior.
