Topics: Argentine film actors


Jean-Pierre Reguerraz was a well-known Argentine stage and film actor noted for his deep voice. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1939 of French parents, he studied acting in Europe before returning to Argentina in 1960 for various stage roles. He performed at the Teatro Payro in Marathon, Rayuela, and Ivanov.

He appeared in 35 films, mostly in supporting roles, including the critically-acclaimed El Armario in 2001. In the 2006 Oscar-entry film Family Law, which was distributed in the United States, he played "Uncle Eduardo", a shady attorney. Movie critic Ty Burr of The Boston Globe said Family Law "gets a lift" from Reguerraz' portrayal. Other films include El Amor y la ciudad (2006) and Garage Olimpo (1999), as "Juan Carlos". His last film appearance was in Luisa, filmed in mid-2007.
