The Valet Starring Samara Weaving Set for Spring at Hulu
The valet, a remake of the 2006 French comedy of the same name, will be released in the spring of 2022, Hulu has announced. With Samara weaving as a movie star named Olivia and Max Greenfield as Olivia’s married lover, Vincent, The valet is described as a “fish out of water romantic comedy”.
Eugene Derbez stars as the titular “hardworking” valet Antonio, who inadvertently appears in a paparazzi photo of Olivia and Vincent. Sensing a public relations disaster, Olivia asks Antonio to impersonate her new boyfriend. The ruse puts Antonio in the spotlight and, like a romantic comedy, allows “two worlds and cultures to collide” as Olivia and Antonio come to understand each other better.

Greenfield burst onto the scene with a supporting performance in the hit sitcom new girl. He has since acted in films such as Promising young woman and what men want. The multi-hyphenate Derbez, of course, recently appeared in a supporting role in the main Oscar contender CODA, which, coincidentally, was also a remake of a French film. He shared a Historic Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture with the cast of CODA at the recent Screen Actors Guild Awards.
