Rowan Atkinson, Zazu — Disney Animals Then and Now

Disney/Johnny English Reborn (Universal Pictures)

Then: Thanks to the comedy series ‘The Black Adder’ and the creation of his most-famous character Mr. Bean, the English comedian was already a comedy legend in the United Kingdom, but was lesser known Stateside.

Now: Thanks to Mr. Bean, as well as ‘Johnny English,’ and Atkinson’s scene-stealing role in the Christmas-set romantic comedy ‘Love Actually,’ this kooky comedian has achieved international stardom. So much so that he felt comfortable officially retiring the character of Bean in November of 2012, shortly after he appeared as part of the Olympic Opening Ceremony in London.
