Stand-up comic and film actor Gad Elmaleh is not only considered the funniest person in France, but he's also dating Monaco's Charlotte Casiraghi, the stunning royal granddaughter of the late Princess Grace Kelly. And Casiraghi is expecting their first child together later this year.
Virtually unknown in the U.S., Elmaleh, 42, was actually in Woody Allen's Oscar-winning Midnight in Paris, as the misguided Détective Tisserant.
Starting Friday, American audiences will have the opportunity to see him again, this time in his starring role in the financial thriller Capital, opposite Gabriel Byrne and directed by Oscar-winning French director Costa-Gavras.
Here are five things to know about the Moroccan-born celebrity, who recently sat down with PEOPLE.

Prince George may only be 3 months old, but the newly baptized baby is already making his presence felt in his family.
When Time visited Queen Elizabeth's Balmoral estate in preparation for its new cover story on Prince Charles, writer Catherine Mayer spotted a smart Silver Cross pram – what Americans call a baby carriage – with a navy blue canopy and cover, standing in a hallway by the side door.
That was not the only passing of traditions that the magazine reported.

He's ready to serve, he's been wanting to serve, but when will Britain's heir apparent serve?
That is the question that has dogged Prince Charles practically his entire 64 years. But now, with his mother, Queen Elizabeth, slowing down at 87 (yet with no intention of abdicating), and his son Prince William and daughter-in-law, Kate, keeping the spotlight on the monarchy blazing hot, Charles discusses the issue of succession and other personal matters in an exclusive new cover story for Time.
Of his unique role in the world, Charles tells the magazine's Catherine Mayer, "I've had this extraordinary feeling, for years and years, ever since I can remember really, of wanting to heal and make things better. … I feel more than anything else it's my duty to worry about everybody and their lives in this country, to try to find a way of improving things if I possibly can."
Titled "The Forgotten Prince," no doubt in light of William and Prince Harry's celebrity and even 3-month-old grandson Prince George's swiftly rising star, the article presents the royal as unsurprisingly staid, yet thoughtful, proactive and as delightfully proud of his sons and new grandson as any older relative would be.

A big day for little Prince George.
Lightly jiggled in his father's arms, the 3-month-old looked slightly perplexed at the attention as his parents, Prince William and Kate, greeted clergy at the doors of the baby's special christening service.
Led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the 35-minute, private ceremony started at 3 p.m. London time (10 a.m. ET) at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.
Shortly after her arrival with Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth spoke with William and Kate, with smiles all around. Kate – in an Alexander McQueen outfit and nude-and-ivory Jane Taylor hat – greeted George's great-grandfather with a kiss on both cheeks and a small curtsy.
As if to underscore the continuity of the monarchy, there, too, at the chapel door were Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have picked close friends, a royal and a friend of Princess Diana as godparents to 3-month-old Prince George.
The names of the seven – that's one more godparent than William has – were released a few hours before they were to join senior royals and the Middleton family for George's christening.
Led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the service is set to take place at 3 p.m. London time (10 a.m. ET) at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.
These are the people who will have a special place in Prince George's life:

Well, I never.
It seems the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have thrown caution to the wind and invited a photographer to capture their most intimate moments with Prince George – from bath time to nappy changing.
And is that Queen Elizabeth snapping a pic of baby George in a king's crown … with her smartphone?!
If it all seems too good to be true, well, that's because it is. Look closer, and you'll see that the photos are only an elaborate, brilliantly executed spoof.

Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas might be getting serious, but they're not quite ready to attend sacred royal family occasions together.
Despite reports over the weekend saying Bonas was mulling over an invitation to this Wednesday's Christening of Harry's nephew Prince George, the 24-year-old in fact has not been asked and wasn't expecting to be, those close to her say.
"It was always so unlikely that she would be invited. To say she is shy and mulling it over is rubbish," a family friend tells PEOPLE.

Kate was back in the swing of things Friday – when she played volleyball in sky-high wedges.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 31, left Prince George at home in Kensington Palace with Prince William for her first solo royal outing since giving birth in July. And she showed she's back in shape as she leaped into action at the net.
The sports-loving princess was in her element among the athletes as she joined her charity, SportsAid, in the familiar surroundings of London's Olympic Park.

It is an important day in Prince William's royal career.
On Thursday, the Duke of Cambridge took on the grand ceremonial role of bestowing knighthoods for the first time, stepping in for his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, to carry out one of 25 investitures that take place at Buckingham Palace each year.
It is a sign of the future king's increasingly formal role in the work of the family after ending his military service in September.
