Two things to mention, rather than a review of the DaVinci code:

If you need a french cop, you hire Jean Reno. This is what he does. Except maybe once, according to IMDB, he played a Russian cop.

Paul Bettany, who played the monk, played Mautrin in Master and Commander, who is one of my favorite fictional characters ever, especialy in the books:

"Jack! You have debauched my sloth!"

Also, he will be playing The Joker in the "Untitled sequal to Batman Begins."

Paul Bettany ended up being my favorite part of that film, hands down.

I hate to be that guy, but . . . Bettany is not *officially* the Joker. Check out the imdb link: In talks. Last I heard, they wanted Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman or some bizarre combination of the two. Personally, I think Michael Keaton would be great (and mess with people just the right amount). Sorry to ruin the parade.

If you want defintive Jean Reno, check out The Professional, where he bonds with an eleven-year-old Natalie Portman, teaches her how to kill people and watches THE TRANSFORMERS. Or RONiN. Or LES VISITEURS, which is like the French MONTY PYTHON + THE HOLY GRAIL. The Crimson Rivers is amazing too (and broohoohewtal).

Yeah, definitely not a cop in The Professional (or, if you prefer, Leon: The Professional), but still full of awesomeness. And Ronin, opposite De Niro...but if you want a true "Reno as French Cop" experience, go play Onimusha 3.
