He played the Martian in “Perhaps” by Cedric Klapisch in 1999, opposite Eric Cantona in “The Over-Eater” in 2003, and received recognition in “Grande école” in 2004. It was during the filming that he met his future partner in real life, Alice Taglioni. The public was also impressed by his role in the thriller “Empire of the Wolves” (2005) in which he teamed up with Jean Reno to quell a mysterious Turkish criminal organisation. Winner of the Prix Patrick Dewaere in 2008, he was also nominated for a Cesar for Most Promising Young Actor for his role in “99 francs” by Jan Kounen. That same year, he played opposite his life partner Alice Taglioni in “What If…?”.
Not afraid of bit parts, he appeared in the sting film “Ca$h” and the drama “The Wolberg Family”. In 2009, he took to comedy with the successful “LOL” by Lisa Azuelos and “Incognito” by Eric Lavaine. In November of the same year, Jocelyn Quivrin met his death in a car accident on the highway near Paris.
