Marion is Nathalie the Bear on 'Le Débarquement'

Marion Cotillard quite unlike we’ve seen her before! ‘Le Débarquement‘ the huge live comedy event on Canal+ this past Friday evening by Jean Dujardin, Guillaume Canet, Gilles Lellouche together with Alex Lutz, Laurent Lafitte and Nicolas Bedos and many more actors & some guests also featured a number of pre-recorded segments. One involved Monsieur Picco – played by Guillaume Canet – seeking treatment of a beauty surgeon – played by Jean Dujardin – at a private clinic for his dear wife Nathalie because she’s suffering from a rare kind of shyness and afraid of being seen in public. Little wonder because she’s actually a bear. Cut to 16 months later – and Nathalie now is still a bear but looks like Marion Cotillard! It seems he’s not as happy with the result as expected – he fears he has now lost his wife – but she’s more than happy once she’s got her honey pot!

Le Débarquement

On Friday 18 January, Marion will be taking part in ‘Le Débarquement’, which will air live on Canal+ at 8:50pm.

A bit about ‘Le Débarquement’:

The idea came about when Jean Dujardin, Gilles Lellouche and Guillaume Canet wanted to do something in the style of Saturday Night Live and Funny or Die in France.

It is above all an adventure of friends, the desire to play, laugh together, and invite everyone to participate.
The Landing is a series of skits, with a freedom of tone.
A bit like some American shows, it was also an opportunity to “mix” actors and actresses “recognized” with lesser known actors but the talented blast
From the outset, the deal was clear to all: leave the ego at home, we accept self-mockery and is not calculated. It goes back into the ridiculous or absurd if necessary. It explodes.

In an interview with Dujardin, Lellouche and Canet, Marion’s name was mentioned as one of the guests.

Can you give us some guests that will accompany you?
Laurent Lafitte, Nicolas Bedos, Géraldine Nakache, Alexandra Lamy, Melanie Doutey, Marion Cotillard, Alex Lutz and others but we will not tell you everything now …

At this stage it is an one-off event, but they are hoping if it is a ratings success, it  may come back for future installments.
