I just saw that too. Always affable. Most memorable in the original (and still the best) movie The Time Machine. When WB released the DVD in 1993 they actually created a mini-sequel with Bean and Rod Taylor reprising their original roles. It had our time traveler, H.G. Wells, traveling back to his 19th century time period to tell his postman, played by Bean, what happened since he defeated the Morlocks. It was a charming short film.
