He is the eponymous character in the Vanessa Paradis - Joe Le Taxi (Clip Officiel) Video.
Judge for yourself

I watched the video earlier in my attempts to identify the actor but to no avail!! I did discover that Vanessa Paradis used to be married to Johnny Depp though!! Luckily for her she got out before he "allegedly" started being abusive!! :-D

Yes I was just after "Joe"....cant find any acting credits given to the actor who played Joe in that video. There was another version of her riding through the streets on a blue jeep with who I presume is another uncredited "Joe".

That one has quite a few french cars of the period featured!

More or less the same as mine except I had Milo O'Shea as a definite and Bill Owen as a possible. I didn't think it was Pat Coombs I thought it was her predecessor whose name was an odd one, Elma or Ezme or something like that. :-D

Edit Just looked her up, Esma Cannon!! :-D

When I first saw it I thought it was Tony Hancock but as he wasn't in the film that is pretty unlikely :-D It could be Milo or Norman, not really sure!!

As you've had a tough day Neil have a look at these: The Fosse Way

From the quiz book:

1 Place names ending "cester" are common on Roman Roads. From what is that derived and what does it mean?

2 What can be found at Chedworth constructed between the 2nd and 4th Centuries?

3 A motor museum with a toy collection can be found in which town on The Fosse Way?

4 Which A road links Chipping Norton with Evesham?

5 Where was the second series of The Grand Tour filmed?

Enjoy :-D
