Jean-Luc Bideaux

  1.  Michel Piccoli, Passion, France-Switzerland, 1981.  For his second (non) comeback , the bilious Jean-Luc Godard  selected the tall Swiss actor  and then off-loaded him during the months of prepping. Piccoli came aboard and the boss was re-named  Michel, instead of Jean-Luc,  as this was one of those films where every actor’s role was named after the actor.  It’s what’s called sheer bloody laziness on the part of the scenarist.  Godard, bien sur.
