Actor Christoph Waltz will have a “significant” role in Bond 24, BAZ BAMIGBOYE OF THE DAILY MAIL REPORTED.

However, Bamigboye, who had a number of Skyfall scoops proven correct, was less than definitive on what the role would be.

“It’s not immediately evident whether the part’s friend, or foe or a bit of both,” Bamigboye quoted someone he described as “a person who has knowledge of the screenplay.”

The scribe quotes another source (also not identified by name) as saying Waltz’s character is “extremely cunning” and a “nemesis of sorts.” He also quotes another “Bond 24 spook” as saying Waltz is not necessarily playing movie’s villain. Bamigboye describes this comment as “a clear bit of misdirection.”

Waltz, 58, has supporting actor Oscars for Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds.

VARIETY said Eon Productions, which produces the 007 films, and studios Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Sony “had no comment.”

UPDATE (Nov. 14): The Wrap entertainment website, while citing Bamigboye about the Waltz casting newsm added this tidbit IN ITS STORY:

Chiwetel Ejiofor had been in talks for a villainous role in the film, but TheWrap confirmed several weeks ago that the deal never came together. It’s believed that Waltz is taking over that role.

  1. it’s great news that christoph waltz is joining the cast member’s of bond 24 for filming next month. if the rumour is true. most of his fan’s would like him to play the lead villain. however looking back on his film credit’s he has a history of playing characters that has a cavalier humour about them. take for instance the Nazi officer he played in ‘inglorious bastard’s” was probably the most serious. ‘the villain in ‘green hornet” was cavalier humour also in ‘dejango (unchained) if he’s cast as the lead villain in bond 24 waltz’s will need to be more sinister in his performance. bond villains are very sinister and cold hearted people.
