Olivier Minne no longer presents himself! He is one of the essential faces of the PAF and even more so of those of France Télévisions. Host of the channel since 1990, when it was still called Antenne 2, he is still today one of the channel’s most fashionable hosts. This is why, even if it is a question of eviction, there should be no doubt that Olivier Minne remains a host on France 2.
Indeed, evoking his eviction from the chain would be more specific to another field. A domain that Olivier Minne would have tried to integrate several times and without success. Upset by yet another France 2 reversal, he would then have taken a radical decision. That of definitively closing the door to this kind of project, to the great despair of his fans elsewhere. Because, Objeko do not hide from you that these famous projects which he gives up would have been nice surprises for his admirers.
Olivier Minne is content with his work as an animator
It was in the columns of the magazine TV 2 Weeks that our star host from France Télévisions confided in his thwarted ambitions. He thus evoked the deprogramming of Joker for example. In August 2021, it was very sad to publicly announce that the shows currently airing were the last. “These are the last shows of this game that I was very happy to present. Thank you to my accomplice Vanessa and my faithful assistant Sébastien Chartier who, through their talent, have made this show a success more often than it seems. Thank you to those who followed us! »said Olivier Minne.
But the sadness of his fans was quickly swept away since he remains in the animation of other cult shows on France 2. In particular Fort Boyard which has not tired its audience for many years already. But then, what project did Olivier Minne claim to totally renounce? After all, it is this program that the public first thinks of when its name is mentioned.
Also, Objeko don’t hide the fact that Olivier Minne has been talked about like never since he gained muscle! Same Fort Boyard was gaining visibility thanks to the new silhouette of its host. The public was amazed by his transformation, the speed of it and his impressive character. And since then, he is regularly quoted by fans who find him terribly cute.
In short, this might be the perfect time to try out our new projects in parallel with his hosting contracts. Olivier Minne could perhaps be an actor? But there you go, that’s where the shoe pinches, as the saying goes. Since it is this kind of project that he claimed to renounce in the columns of our colleagues. Explanations.
A thwarted ambition, an inaccessible dream
Indeed, our star animator nurtured the hope of becoming an actor. Like many of his fellow animators no doubt, it was not just one vocation that drove Olivier Minne to work on television. For Nikos Aliagas it was journalism for example. For Nagui, it is his love of music that accompanies him. And for Jean-Luc Reichmann to name just one more, it is his desire to help his neighbor. In doing so, the latter managed to combine a career as a host and an actor!
A dream that has become inaccessible will be able to be a colleague of France 2? It is very likely, Objeko grant it to you. The fact is that he decided, five years ago, to stop dreaming by participating in castings. Olivier Minne had had enough of being turned away because of his job as an animator. And in the columns of TV 2 Weekshe recounts this umpteenth disappointment which pushed him to take a radical decision.
“I made this decision five years ago, after yet another audition. It was for a France 2 series. The producer decided to withdraw me from distribution. », said the presenter. And we have to believe that Olivier Minne therefore still has difficulty digesting the choice of the producer at the time. Especially since the reasons given seemed to him totally aberrant.
They would thus have been rejected afterwards, quite simply because of his work as a host on France 2. The producer would thus have told him that “it was not good to have a TV presenter in the cast” and Olivier Minne had a hard time swallowing it. “However, I only had a few lines to play, you can’t say that my intervention would have damaged the reputation of the series! », he added. Since then, he has given up trying his luck…
