This Friday, Steve Martin will be returning as Inspector Jacques Clouseau in Sony and MGM’s The Pink Panther 2. The character, made famous by the late Peter Sellers, was revived three years ago when Martin and his Cheaper by the Dozen director Shawn Levy decided to reinvent the character. Now, Clouseau is back, once again trying to find thieves who’ve once against stolen the priceless Pink Panther Diamond, this time paired with a team of international detectives by his aggravated boss Chief Inpector Dreyfus (this time played by John Cleese). The cast is rounded out by Emily Mortimer, returning as Clouseau’s love interest Nicole, Jean Reno as Clouseau’s friend and partner Ponton, Andy Garcia, Alfred Molina and Lily Tomlin.
ComingSoon.net’s Heather Newgen had a chance to sit down and talk with Steve Martin and Jean Reno about returning for the sequel.
The Pink Panther 2 opens everywhere on Friday, February 6.
