Depardieu Plays Strauss-Kahn in a Reenactment of the IMF Chief's Sexual Assault Trial

Gérard Depardieu is the spitting image of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, writes the Daily Mail (merci à Duncan), as the French movie star as the Russian movie star plays the IMF chief on a set in New York reenacting the media storm surrounding the sexual assault trial in the company of Jacqueline Bisset co-starring as his then-wife, the French TV reporter Anne Sinclair.
In an interview with Swiss Television RTS last year, Depardieu revealed he agreed to play the part because he found his fellow countryman 'arrogant and smug', adding: 'He is very French. I will do it, because I don't like him.'
