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.

Princess Caroline of Monaco's happiness streak continues.
After PEOPLE reported that her son Andrea Casiraghi is set to tie the knot with his fiancée, South American heiress Tatiana Santo Domingo, on Aug. 31, sources confirm that the Princess's daughter, Charlotte Casiraghi, is expecting her first child with French comedian and actor Gad Elmaleh before Christmas.
The good news doesn't end there: Charlotte, 27, and Morocco-born Elmaleh, 42, are also engaged and plan to wed this fall in a private ceremony.
