Published: 03rd July 2019

After making his Hollywood debut in the 2017 supernatural thriller, Devil’s Night: Dawn Of The Nain Rouge, actor Napoleon, who has worked in almost 100 films and in all four South Indian languages, will be seen in another American independent film soon. Titled Christmas Coupon, the film is directed by independent filmmaker, Daniel Knudsen.

Christnas Coupm features Courtney Mathews and Aaron Noble in the lead. In this romantic drama, Mathews plays a skating champ who is teaching skating to children. Noble is a hockey player. Napoleon plays the manager/sports agent of the hockey player. Sheena Monnin plays his pair.

Reportedly, the film's executive producer Tel K Ganesan, who happens to be Napoleon's friend, had requested the Seevalaperi Paandi actor to be part of this project, and his next production. 

Napoleon, during the promotional event of Christmas Coupon held in Chennai recently, said that he believes in my dreams and keeping in tune with that , he hopes to play the lead in a Hollywood film very soon/ “A lot of Tamil film offers are coming my way but as I’ve moved to the US for my son, who has muscular dystropjy, I couldn’t accept many projects. Last year, I worked with Sivakarthikeyan in Seemaraja, and I planning to sign another big Tamil film this year. An official announcement will be out soon”, he said.

The actor also added that shooting the film shooting at -30 degrees in Detroit was a new experience to him. “Learning the American slang did not come easy. Unlike here, where delivery of dialogues are corrected in the dubbing studio, it’s live recording in Hollywood, and one has to be perfect while shooting," he added.

Napoleon also proudly announced that he is the only Tamil actor, who had acted in a Hollywood film, which was completely shot in the US.

The actor played a library curator in Devil's night: Dawn of the Nain Rouge.
