The Intouchables was one of the breakout hits last year, breaking Amelie’s record for highest-grossing international release of a French film. Now, lead actor Omar Sy is set to make his Hollywood debut.

Sy, who played a troubled teen from a rough neighborhood charged with caring for an invalid aristocrat in The Intouchables, is close to booking a role opposite Bradley Cooper in Chef. The project, in which Cooper will play a temperamental chef whose Parisian restaurant loses its Michelin star rating, will be directed by Blue Valentine’s Derek Cianfrance.

The actor has also landed the lead in French drama Chocolat (not to be confused with Johnny Depp’s seminal love story with the same name). The film portrays the life of Rafael Padilla, a former Cuban slave who becomes the first Black entertainer in France’s Belle Epoque era.

Hopefully we’ll see the French actor walk the red carpet at the upcoming Academy Awards, where The Intouchables is nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.
