Yesterday The Daily Mail reported that Christoph Waltz is joining the cast of James Bond 24. According to writer Baz Bomigboye, Waltz will be playing a significant character who is extremely cunning and some kind of nemesis to Bond.
This isn’t the first villainous role for the two-time Oscar winning actor, who first became known to worldwide audiences as the evil Col. Hans Linda in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. He went on to play other dastardly characters like Chudnofsky in The Green Hornet, August in Water for Elephants and Cardinal Richelieu in the 2011 Three Musketeers remake.
Bond 24 will be directed by Sam Mendes with Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, and Ben Whishaw all returning to reprise their roles. Filming is set to start in early December.
Waltz will next be seen in Horrible Bosses 2 which comes out on November 26.
