In some of the first Bond 24 casting news to hit the webosphere, MI6 reports the call has gone out for an iconic villain a la Jaws or Oddjob. The next film’s “main assassin” will be featured in several fights with Daniel Craig, as well as a driving sequence. Mendes and company are on the hunt for a very physically imposing actor who is over 6’ 2” and extremely physically fit. Casting call information says “former sports athletes” and anyone “very unusual” will be considered to play the role of “Hinx,” a male between 30 and 45. MI6 also says the film is looking for “a henchman so different to anything that has gone before that they will become instantly iconic in the film series.”
Hmm…may I suggest you look no further, Mr. Mendes?
Bond 24 also stars Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rory Kinnear; filming begins this December.
