And what's interesting about him as a comic character

We still have a tradition certainly in English television;
it's faded a bit in the last five years,
but we still have a tradition where the important thing
is the quality and the challenging nature of the programming.
- Rowan Atkinson

Get that right, then- if you get the quality right,

because what's fun about him is that he doesn't care about anyone else,
and it's very difficult for a main character -
a lead character -
in a movie to not care about anybody else.
- Rowan Atkinson
