Pascal Edward Sauvage is the main antagonist of the 2003 movie Johnny English. He is a fictional businessman, entrepreneur and long-lost French Prince who wants to rule Britain by creating maximum security prisons for all over the country to maintain total control after becoming king.
He was portrayed by John Malkovich, who also played Mitch Leary in In the Line of Fire, Cyrus Grissom in Con Air, Humma Kavula in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Galbatorix in Eragon, Teddy Deserve in Knockaround Guys, Quentin Turnbull in Jonah Hex, Tom Ripley in Ripley's Game and Vicomte Sébastien de Valmont in Dangerous Liaisons.
During 2002, the British secret agent Johnny English is sent by his superior Pegasus to go to the Tower of London, where it is held a party for the restoration of the Crown Jewels for the King. There, English meets Pascal Sauvage for the first time along with Interpol agent Lorna Campbell. While Sauvage delivers a speech, his henchmen turn out the lights and steal the Crown Jewels they hide in the contractor's apartment.
Later, English and his colleague Bough infiltrate Sauvage's office. However, Sauvage is informed of this by one of his henchmen Dieter Klein and reports this to Pegasus, voluntarily causing English to get fired. This allows Sauvage to force Queen Elizabeth to give up the throne, resulting in a ceremony at the church in Britain where he is supposed to be crowned to be king.
However, English, Bough and Lorna Campbell continued to investigate Sauvage and present themselves at the ceremony to prevent the coronation. Sauvage's security agents finally capture English, but the spy was able to escape from them and kicked Sauvage off the throne before he is arrested by the MI7. Sauvage's final fate is not revealed, but a presenter mentions that if he is found guilty of high treason, he could be executed. Sauvage then makes his final wish that after he is executed his brain will be donated to the British Science Society for schizophrenia research.
