Rowan Atkinson rumored to play Hitler in Netflix series ‘Peaky Blinders’

Mr. Bean actor, Rowan Atkinson, might be playing as Adolf Hitler in the sixth season of the notorious Netflix show Peaky Blinders.

The sixth season of Peaky Blinders is about to come soon after all the wait. However, some rumors have spread out lately. The new season is expected to air in 2021 or 2022, according to the reports. Nevertheless, fans are too eager for it to happen soon.

Could Mr. Bean be a good fit for the show?

Rowan Atkinson, CBE, is an English actor, comedian, and writer. He is best known for his performances in sitcoms Blackadder and Mr. Bean. In addition to that, his other credits incorporate Not the Nine O’Clock News, Johnny English, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and a James Bond movie Never Say Never.

His latest performance was in the newest movie of the Johnny English film series  Johnny English Strikes Again.

The rumors

According to the Express UK reports, the English actor/comedian was cast for the role of Adolf Hitler in the upcoming season of the British drama television series Peaky Blinders.

While being an English actor gives a spark to these rumors, fans speculate that Rowan Atkinson could be entering the star-studded show presenting the Birmingham of the 1930s.

By the end of season five, we saw how Tommy Shelby’s assassination plan of the fascist politician Oswald Mosley (played by Sam Claflin) was sabotaged.

On the one hand, the British Union of Fascists (BUF) leader, Oswald Mosley, is likely to seek revenge for his assassination plan. While on the other hand, Tommy is most likely to investigate the depth of whoever sabotaged his plans to assassinate Mosley.

The ‘real’ Oswald Mosley was a friend of the notorious dictator, Adolf Hitler. Besides, he has also met Italy’s fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. These are some of the reasons to believe that these rumors may even be true.

Hitler was even a guest at the second wedding of Mosley with Diana Mitford in 1936. The wedding ceremony occurred at the home of Third Reich Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. And Hitler was a guest of honor at the ceremony.

What’s the conclusion?

The show’s fans feel that Hitler and Mosley’s friendship can be the reason for Hitler to make an appearance in the sixth season. Rowan Atkinson remains the ‘fan favorite’ to play the role of Hitler in the upcoming season of Peaky Blinders.

However, there is no official statement from any authentic agency/person regarding these rumors yet. The report suggested by the Express UK is mainly based on a response from a Reddit user regarding Hitler’s appearance in season six. Ultimately, the response was based on speculations on the one hand, and the passion, on the other hand.
