Criminal lawyer, minister and … actor. This part of his long career is less well known but Eric Dupond-Moretti also starred in several films. This Sunday, August 2, viewers will therefore be able to find him in Claude Lelouch’s film Everyone has his own life, a comedy on the world of justice released in 2017. It was then the first role of composition for Isabelle Boulay’s husband, who plays a president of assize courts in love with a prostitute played by Béatrice Dalle.
A funny program while the great lawyer was the guest of the television news of France 2, two weeks before, as the new Minister of Justice, on Sunday July 19. But the movie Everyone has his own life is not the only film in which Eric Dupond-Moretti starred. In 2016, France 2 had already broadcast the fiction The Affair of Master Lefort, where the lawyer played the role … of a tenor of the bar. A fiction in which he shared the poster with Patrick Sébastien, who also played a lawyer in addition to being author of the screenplay.
A strong presence in the theater
We could also see him in the comedy Neuilly his mother, his mother! or in The Bastards by Claire Denis, two films in which he played his own role. Apart from the small screen and the cinemas, Eric Dupond-Moretti has also walked the stages of the theater. Since January 2019, the lawyer has been performing alone on stage in several theaters for a show entitled Eric Dupond-Moretti at the helm. But all his activities, such as the project of a film with Claude Lelouche, were suspended when he entered the government. The Salle Pleyel site, which was to host several performances, indicates: “The performances of Maître Dupond-Moretti, now Keeper of the Seals, cannot take place due to his duty of reserve and his new responsibilities as Minister“.
