Biography

Il est surtout connu en France pour avoir constitué dès la fin des années 1950 un duo comique, Grosso et Modo, avec l'acteur Guy Grosso. Ce duo apparaîtra dans de nombreux films avec Louis de Funès, dont la série du Gendarme de Saint-Tropez, où ils interpréteront les rôles des gendarmes Tricard et Berlicot aux côtés de Michel Galabru, Jean Lefebvre et Christian Marin. Ils sont aussi Lecoing et Laflûte dans Le Songe d'une nuit d'été de Jean-Christophe Averty qui les dirigera à maintes reprises dans ses téléfilms et "shows" musicaux aux côtés d'un autre duo comique constitué de Michel Muller et Jacques Ferrière.

Entre 1993 et 1997, il est un acteur récurrent de la série télévisée Highlander : Maurice, personnage humoristique caractérisant le Français moyen.

En décembre 2005, il joue dans le feuilleton télévisé Plus belle la vie aux côtés de Colette Renard. Il y incarne un clochard philosophe déguisé en Père Noël.

Il a doublé également plusieurs personnages récurrents dans la version française de la série animée Les Simpson. À sa mort brutale en 2008 à l'âge de 71 ans, lors du doublage des derniers épisodes de la saison 19, il est remplacé au pied-levé par Gérard Rinaldi qui meurt à son tour d'un lymphome le 2 mars 2012.

The film opens with narration from Kuzco, a teenage Inca emperor who has been transformed into a llama. He tells the story of how his life as a ruler used to be and how it was ruined "for no reason". However, in his flashback he is shown to have been rude and narcisissitic, albeit charismatic. He even goes so far as insulting the appearances of potential brides and throwing an old man out the window for "throwing off his groove." After Kuzko fires his conniving advisor, Yzma, for abusing her power, she comes up with a scheme to usurp the throne with the help of Kronk, her dim-witted but jovial henchman. Meanwhile, Kuzco meets with Pacha, a kind peasant and village leader, and tells him that he wants to demolish his hilltop family home to build himself a lavish summer home called "Kuzcotopia". Pacha protests, but is dismissed.

In 1939 New Orleans, a roguish German Shepherd named Charlie B. Barkin escapes from a dog pound with the help of his friend, a dachshund named Itchy Itchiford. They return to a casino riverboat on the bayou, which is formerly run by Charlie with his partner, a bulldog named Carface Caruthers. Not wanting to share the profits with Charlie, Carface persuades him to leave town with 50% of the casino's earnings. Charlie agrees, but is later intoxicated and murdered by Carface. He is sent to Heaven where a whippet angel named Annabelle (who was named in the sequel) tells him that a gold watch representing his life has stopped. He steals and winds it, sending Charlie back to Earth, but is told that if he dies again, he will go to Hell. After reuniting with Itchy, they discover that Carface is holding an orphan girl named Anne-Marie (presumably kidnapped from the orphanage by Carface), who has the ability to talk to animals and gain knowledge of a race's results beforehand, allowing Carface to rig the odds on the rat races and become rich. They rescue her, intending to use her abilities to get revenge on Carface, though Charlie tells her that they plan to give their winnings to the poor and help her find parents.

In 1947, cartoon characters are commonly referred to as "toons" and most work as paid actors in Hollywood. They frequently interact with humans and animals, and dwell in the animated district of Toontown, owned by businessman Marvin Acme. Amongst the toon stars is Roger Rabbit, who does comedy shorts with Baby Herman, but as of late his performances are poor. Meanwhile, R.K. Maroon, Roger’s employer and head of Maroon Studios, hires private detective Eddie Valiant to investigate rumors that Roger’s wife Jessica Rabbit is having an extramarital affair. Eddie himself is an alcoholic, following the murder of his brother Teddy at the hands of a toon. Going to the Ink & Paint Club, Eddie at first believes that Jessica is a rabbit (due to her last name), but surprised when he sees that she's a very attractive woman. He later attempts and manages to snap photographs of Marvin Acme playing patty cake with Jessica, showing them to Maroon and a distraught Roger who vows he and his wife will be happy, before running off.
