Don’t want to play Mr. Bean anymore: Atkinson
Los Angeles: Actor Rowan Atkinson says playing the fun-filled character in comedy series ‘Mr. Bean’ does not suit him anymore and he might do less of it.
The 50-year-old actor admits that although playing ‘Mr. Bean’ has been very successful throughout his career, but the mute character has become tiring for him.
"The stuff that has been most commercially successful for me - basically quite physical, quite childish - I increasingly feel I'm going to do a lot less of," Daily Telegraph quoted him as saying.
"Apart from the fact that your physical ability starts to decline, I also think someone in their 50s being childlike becomes a little sad. You've got to be careful," he added.
‘Mr. Bean’, first aired on television in 1990, was on air for five-long-years. His 1997 film ‘Bean’ and its sequel ‘Mr. Bean's Holiday’ in 2007 were also a huge success.
