French-Martinican rapper/actor Didier Morville (aka Joeystarr) stars in this romantic comedy titled Max, which follows the story of a young girl who sets her single father up with a prostitute, as, as you' expect, things get a bit complicated. 

The film co-stars Mathilde Seigner, Jean Pierre Marielle and Shana Castera, and is set for release in France on January 23, 2013.

The title of this post references the fact that Joeystarr's casting in a rom-com is apparently antithetical to his usual M.O., and is taking many in France by surprise, given what I understand to be a usual harder edge to him. His said to be "violent" past is littered with a number of public altercations, so I suppose this warmer, softer, romantic side of his isn't what the French who know him well enough, expect.

Our French readers can chime in on all of that, if you'd like.

Joeystarr is certainly no stranger to acting. He's appeared on the TV and film several times in the last decade+.

Max is written and directed by Stéphanie Murat.

Here's its trailer (not subtitled):
