Steve Martin to be new Inspector Clouseau

Comic actor Steve Martin will star as a new Inspector Clouseau in a fresh “Pink Panther” movie due out next summer, the film’s makers have said.


Martin, who will be starring alongside Beyonce and Oscar-winner Kevin Kline, said he was intimidated at first by the thought of following in actor Peter Sellers’ stumbling footsteps as the hapless Clouseau, but he got over it.


“They have different James Bonds,” he quipped at a news conference on Friday.


Others in the cast of the MGM Pictures film that should reach movie houses by next summer include French actor Jean Reno and Tony Award-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth
