Life and career[edit] His rotund features and premature baldness allowed him to often play cuckolded husbands in his early career. He is notable for being one of France's most versatile and sought-after character actors, performing interchangeably in comedies and dramas. His complete filmography includes 138 titles.[1] He often appeared in Italian films too, particularly in the last decade of his life.[2] He was awarded an Honorary César (the French Oscar) in 1989, 24 days before he died.[3] Personal life[edit] He is the father of director Bertrand Blier. He has appeared in a number of his son's films, most notably Buffet froid
