Jean Reno, you renaissance man, you.
Reno captures hearts and minds of men and women across Japan in his latest role: Doraemon. The 63 year-old actor, known for his “Frenchness,” is featured in the latest of a series of Toyota commercials featuring live-action versions of Doraemon characters all grown up. And after 30 years Nobita is still getting picked on. The commercial ends with Nobita asking Doraemon to give him a car, to which Doraemon refuses, telling Nobita he doesn’t have a driver’s license. (Ha! That crazy Jean Reno.)
