It seems that everyone's favorite pessimistic sarcastic rabbit from the downs gets to sink on the Titanic now.  While I certainly don't expect to see any Hawkbit-like remarks while on board, I can see how our furry friend would assess the situation...

Most interesting.

Hopefully Hawkbit will prove to be more unsinkable than Titanic. ;)

If he does play an annoying pessimistic sarcastic character like Hawkbit, then somebody will probably push him off the lifeboat. :lol

Funny, I remembered this post.  Lee Ross indeed did play Barnes in the miniseries, and he didn't play a sarcastic character.  He actually did something very nice for the servant of a 1st class passenger.  His character was not one of the survivors though.
