He just finished shooting Kenneth Lonergan's Margaret with Mark Ruffalo, Matt Damon and Anna Paquin. 

Reno is one of France's most revered and respected actors, having starred opposite Gérard Depardieu in the blockbuster comedy Tais-Toi! and Les Visiteurs, which became the highest grossing film in French box office history when it was released. Its sequel, Les Visiteurs II, also broke box office records. More recently, Reno touched American audiences with his romantic portrayal of a love-struck gourmet chef who sweeps Juliette Binoche off her feet in Jet Lag. He also starred in L'empire des Loups (Empire of the Wolves), based on a bestselling French novel by Jean-Christophe Grangé, who also wrote Crimson Rivers, a novel that was also made into a blockbuster feature film starring Reno. He was also featured in Roberto Benigni's The Tiger and the Snow.

The duo also collaborated on the making of Wasabi, in which Reno also starred. 

Born in Casablanca to Spanish parents, Reno pursued his dream of acting in France after serving his military service in Germany. Settling in Paris, Reno joined stage director Didier Flamand in a traveling theater company that took him around the country. His screen debut was in the French film Clair de Femme, directed by Costa-Gavras.
