Atkinson's actually a Cambridge degree holder and he occasionally does the lecture circuit. We were shown a video workshop on comedy presented by him while I was doing my major in English Literature at Xavier's. The man is outstanding.

Wow. Bean in a Mclaren F1...sounds like the plot of one of his episodes!

He is one of the actors I really admire for his creativity and his flair for comedy. I just need to look at his face once and a smile appears. I have some of his CDs too and I love watching them. Atkinson being a car fan is news to me. I'd love to see how he actually drives those beauties he possesses. I can only imagine him driving the mini.

Guys, let me add another car to his list:

In 1995, desiring somehting more comfortable than his Aston, he bought a Dark green Ferrari 456 with a christmas red inetrior. I have an issue of CAR which has an article with his first impressions and experiences.

I must say he a very entertaining motoring journo, with a very subtle sense of humour, and slightly antiquated views. Very interesting to read his articles.

JC is a big fan of Rowan Atkinson too. When he needs another companion to drive a car for a car compare on TG his first choice is Rowan Atkinson if available.

Can't believe that a long nosed comedian like him is so macho in real life.(No offences guys...I Love the Mr. Bean too...I was just talking about his interviews I have seen on TV...he is totally opposite to what he is in movies).

I watched it last week.. not as good as first one (I missed 2 part ) but surely must one time watch. Some gags do remind you of original series like bean dancing on songs to collect money.. All in al worth spending time and money

Well .. what was the name of Mr Bean part 2 - its Holiday .. right
