Esteemed French actor Michel Duchaussoy has appeared in over 130 films since his debut in Darryl F. Zanuck's World War II epic, "The Longest Day", in 1962. Most of his work has been largely unseen outside his native country, although one of his early films, the 1967 comedy "The Killing Game", about a wealthy playboy who lives out the stories created by a struggling cartoonist, did become an international cult classic. Duchaussoy followed with two more popular thrillers, "The Unfaithful Wife" and "This Man Must Die". He was nominated for a César Award (the French equivalent of an Oscar) for his work in the historical farce "Milou en mai" ("May Fools") in 1991. While Duchaussoy sticks mostly to dramatic fare, he showed his lighter side in the 2006 comedy "Poltergay", about a house that was once the site of a gay disco tragedy and is now haunted by its former club goers. In 2008, Duchaussoy starred as the father of famous French gangster Jacques Mesrine in his two part biographical film "Mesrine".
