It's ironic that George Clooney's biggest competition at the Academy Awards for Best Actor may be Jean Dujardin. After all, Dujardin -- one of the most popular stars in France, with 23 film credits to his name -- is already being described by some as "the French George Clooney." That's because the dashing 39-year-old has the looks and charm of a matinee idol -- or Clooney, 2011's closest thing to a matinee idol. It's also why Dujardin is the perfect choice to lead 'The Artist,' the French import that is already the talk of Oscar season -- even though it's totally silent.
