He joined the Comédie-Française (English: French comedy) in 1990 as a boarder. He became its 489th member in 1994. He interpreted many prestigious roles including Scapin, Lorenzaccio, Hamlet, Henry V, Tartuffe and George Dandin. Honored with the Gérard-Philipe Prize for the city of Paris, he played the title role of the film "Captain Conan" by Bertrand Tavernier, evoking a little-known episode of the First World War. For this performance, he was awarded the César for best actor in 1997. It was during the performance of Le Malade imaginaire (English: The Imaginary Sickness) in 1991 that he was spotted by Bertrand Tavernier, who offered him the role of Antoine in L.627, released in 1992. A committed actor, he interpreted in 1999, again for Tavernier, the role of a nursery school director faced with social misery in the present.
