In 1989, thanks to one of his friends, Emmanuelle Lepoutre, he attended a course given by Isabelle Nanty in a theater school, the Cours Florent, and decided to stay in Paris to study comedy. He was revealed to the general public in the Robins des Bois comic troupe during the 1990s. He established himself during the 2000s as a recurring second role in French cinema, in different genres.

Thus, he won the César for best male hope in 2003 for his performance in the historical drama Monsieur Batignole, by Gérard Jugnot, then was nominated for the César for best actor in a supporting role in 2005 for his incarnation of a lookalike of Michel.
