Lebeau voiced a mysterious fish in Denis Villeneuve's acclaimed mystical "Maelström" (2000) and then won a Best Actor Jutra Award for the title role in "Séraphin: un homme et son péché" ("Seraphin: A Man and His Sin") (2002), playing a greedy old man who attempts to come between a pair of goodhearted young lovers.

Buoyed by his success, Lebeau went on to earn a Gémeaux Award nomination for his role on the mystery series "Fortier" (TVA, 2000-04), and delighted fans of his most famous films by reprising the role of Méo in the TV series adaptation of "Les Boys" (Radio-Canada, 2007-2012).
