Faugel looks like Mr. Bean!


Have you ever seen them together? Faugel is played by a very tired looking Serge Reggiani. In Rat Race, Rowan Atkinson plays an Italian with narcolepsy. Coincidence? I think NOT.

I was just thinking about this a few weeks ago. Crazy, and quite funny.

Also, the boy with Kevin Costner from Clint Eastwood's 'A Perfect World' looks like a reincarnation of Serge Raggiani/Faugel. I noticed this as well when Faugel was running towards Silien's house in the rain at the end.

lol...i came here to actually see if anyone got the same resemblance.

My first thought was that he looked like Andy Serkis, but I can see the Rowan Atkinson resemblance too.

And Mr. Bean looked a good deal like Elmore Leonard, but without the hare lip.

Nothing is more beautiful than nothing.

Not only that, but I thought the scene in the bar where his face is hidden behind the newspaper as the cops come in, and then he slowly lowers the paper, Faugel reminded me a lot of a younger unkempt Jack Nicholson, especially as he kind of lets out a bored, tired, long "W-h-a-a-a-t?..."


Elsewhere in the film, there are traces of a younger Charles Bronson, especially in his mannerisms and body movements.

Indeed I thought the same.
At many different instances in this film, he reminded me of Rowan Atkinson, Charles Bronson, and Jack Nicholson. Many of his facial expressions also reminded me of Paul Muni.
