Death At A Funeral (2007)
Peter Cushing as Mr. Darcy.
We were pleased with [Gopher] except we were very nervous about him because, after all, there are Pooh-o-files, there are people who really adore Winnie the Pooh, particularly in England, and we didn’t want to offend anyone.
So Larry Clemmons came up with this idea, he said, “How about if he pops up out of a gopher hole and he says ‘I’m not in the book, but I’m at your service! Gopher’s the name,’” and it was just one of those wonderful spontaneous things. Absolutely right, “I’m not in the book,” double meaning: not in the phone book, but he’s not in the A.A. Milne book either!

Looking for a way to create the character of Patrick Bateman, Christian Bale stumbled onto a Tom Cruise appearance on David Letterman. According to American Psycho director Mary Harron, Bale saw in Cruise “this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes” and Bale subsequently based the character of Bateman on that.
