To interpret Sylvain, one of the best chess coaches from France who in real life was called Xavier Parmentier, the director Pierre-François Martin-Laval invited someone you know well personally, Gérard Depardieu, both had already worked together in the cast of the films in the cast of “Asterix e Obelix: Mission Cleopatra ", "rrrrrrr! – In the Stone Age " and "The keys jalopy”. The director justifies his choice: “When I met Xavier Parmentier, I found myself facing a man who remembered Gérard Depardieu: same size, same smoothness and even … volcanic temperament. It is a big naive, of course I immediately thought of Gerard for the role, without imagining for a moment or he would not. Until then, in terms of distribution, I always had luck. I dreamed of Monty Python, I got it. I dreamed of Pierre Richard, he came. etc… When I sent the script to Gérard agent, I still felt a little unsure. The script had 140 pages. I was afraid that this amount discourage Gerard. It was not the case: in 48 hours, he said yes. Gerard is an elegant man. Do not you wait for long. “
It was his casting director Mohamed Belhamar who discovered child actor Assad Ahmed after several months of investigation and wanderings. The director reports: "Mohamed began to look for him in the neighborhoods of Paris, where Bangladeshis are gathered. Not finding, he went to the suburbs. There, Mohamed finally found a boy 12 years in a photo. When he arrived for casting, We realized that he was average … 1 metro 75. Happily, this great “boy” It came with a friend, Assad Ahmed, that physically combined with Fahim we were looking for. He had arrived in France only three months ago, he was a very reserved boy, but he agreed to take the tests”.
