Depar Dieu

Just found out that Gerard Depardieu is playing Obelix for the THIRD time, in the latest Astérix film, due next year (though presumably not in English speaking Canada - don't remember the first two even making a token appearance in the theatres here). Has it really come to this? I guess the only way he can atone for two My Father The Heros is by making three live action Astérix films. Plus Alain Delon plays Julius Caesar in this one - oh, how the mighty have fallen.

I much prefer to think back on Depardieu as more of a rough trade type...
