Jean-Marc Barr

Highest Rated: 96% Hope and Glory (1987)

Lowest Rated: Not Available

Birthday: Sep 27, 1960

Birthplace: Bitburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

Extraordinarily handsome, classically trained actor who made his film debut as Absalom in Bruce Beresford's 1985 biblical bomb, "King David." Fluent in several languages, Barr earned his first leading role as champion diver Jacques Mayol in Luc Besson's "The Big Blue" (1988), a huge hit in France which failed to find an international audience. He enjoyed more success on the arthouse circuit with his fine work as the hapless hero of Lars von Trier's stunning WWII film, "Zentropa" (1991). Barr also did well as an American scholar who travels to Tahiti to do research on Gaugin and forms an odd relationship with an amiable con man in "The Imposters" (1994), and reteamed with von Trier for the striking epic romance "Breaking the Waves" (1996).
