Best and Worst of the 2012 London Olympic Opening Ceremonies
Best: Mr. Bean
He's not that well known in the U.S., but worldwide Mr. Bean is huge. His bit of being part of the orchestra playing the theme to "Chariots of Fire" (written by Vangelis, who is Greek by the way) and then part of a group of runners from the Oscar-winning drama was a great way to salute Britain's unique comic sensibility. And the audience in the stadium loved it.
