French actor Gerard Depardieu talks on a mobile phone next to the mayor of Cetinje, Aleksandar Bogdanovic (R) while sitting in a helicopter after visiting Cetinje January 8, 2013. Depardieu failed to show up in court to face drink driving charges on Tuesday because he was in Montenegro preparing to play disgraced former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn in a film, his lawyer said.
