Rowan Atkinson feels 'too old' to portray bumbling Mr. Bean again

London, Wed, 07 Sep 2011 ANI

London, Sept 7 (ANI): Comedian Rowan Atkinson has revealed that he won't be reprising his role as the bumbling fool Mr. Bean again as he feels he is too old for the part.


Atkinson, 56, had debuted the character on TV in 1989 and the series continued until 1995, before it was adapted into two big screen versions.


But now, according to the Daily Mail, the Johnny English star feels that he will not be able to do justice to the role, as he has grown old.


"I've got a feeling I probably won't play the character (Mr. Bean) again. Never say never, but I just feel I'm getting too old for it," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.


"I've always liked Mr. Bean as a cartoon-like figure, who doesn't really age much.


"I've always seen him as an ageless and timeless being and I'm clearly not ageless and timeless. The older I get, I feel I am less qualified to play him," he added. (ANI)
