Funny looking guy

I just saw Dominique Pinon in the Strand. He's the French Steve Buscemi, he was in Amélie, Aliens 4, those other Jeunet films with Caro (Delicatessen and City of Lost Children) and in Diva ("J'aime pas les ascenseurs ..."), as the accordion obsessed hitman.

He's done 36 projects since Amélie in 2001 which is going some.

Pinon is a damn cool character actor.
How short is he in real life?

He's pretty small, shorter than you.

He's 5'6" in films, except in "Gigantor, Destroyer of Worlds", in which he is 5'8". Although I may have made that up.

Yay for short people!

Did he have a meat cleaver stuck in his head?

It's possible that Steve Buscemi is actually the American Dominique Pinon, though I wouldn't put money on it.

I thought Pinon was the French Ron Perlman....which made City of Lost Children even more confusing.
