Comedian Rowan Atkinson to Produce and Star in Bio-Pic About Life of Conservative Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza
Oxfordshire, Great Britain – British actor and comedian Rowan Atkinson, best known for his hilarious antics as Mr. Bean, has announced a venture into more serious fare as he tackles the life of infamous conservative pundit/leader/writer/film-maker/Christmas-tree-salesman Dinesh D’Souza.
The news has come as a shock to much of the entertainment industry, since D’Souza is of Indian descent and Atkinson is a man of a much paler complexion. No writer or director has been announced, so as of right now there is no word on if the film will take a serious or more comedic approach to its portrayal of D’Souza’s life and career. But the press release did state that, “Mr. Atkinson believes his comedic sensibilities give him a unique perspective into the mind and motives of Dinesh D’Souza.”
