Sam Mendes is assembling quite the cast for his James Bond film. Recently, we heard about Javier Bardem possibly joining and now, it looks like Ralph Fiennes may take a role. Although the part that Fiennes is looking at is unknown, apparently it’s different than Bardem’s role and Fiennes was approached since “the part is one of extreme complexity and only an actor of great ability and dexterity can take it on.”
As of now, only Daniel Craig and Judi Dench are confirmed but rumour has it that a number of A-list actors are being courted for roles. While we don’t know exactly who yet, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
I’m all for seeing both Bardem and Fiennes in the film as they are both fantastic actors. I haven’t really enjoyed a Bond film in a while but by the looks of it, this one could change that.
