UTA has signed French actor and Intouchables star Omar Sy for representation in all areas. 

To date Intouchables has grossed more than $339m from European markets ahead of its May 25 US launch through The Weinstein Company.

Sy is currently in production on Michel Gondry’s latest feature Mood Indigo opposite Audrey Tautou.

In February he won the César Award for best actor for Intouchables, providing a brief glitch in Jean Dujardin’s seemingly unbeatable ascension towards the Oscar. His credits include La Loi De Murphy, Micmacs and King Guillaume.

Sy is additionally represented by French agent Laurent Gregoire.
