The villain list for the 24th Bond film looks like its grown by one more. It seems as if Andrew Scott is throwing his hat into the ring for the role as another of James Bond’s tormentors.
Scott who plays the part of Professor James Moriarty on the hit BBC series Sherlock, will be looking to antagonize a Brit other than Benedict Cumberbatch for a change.
According to The U.K.’s Daily Mail, an insider said “Andrew was hand-picked for a role in the new Bond movie after film bosses loved his star turn in Sherlock” and that “Casting directors thought he was perfect to play a baddie and they wanted to use his existing Sherlock profile – and amp it up to the next level.”
Being in this movie presents a big opportunity for Scott as it could be the role that makes him more of a fixture on the big screen as it has done for Cumberbatch, his Sherlock co-star. The identity of his character is as of yet undetermined of course, but I could see him playing an agent of S.P.E.C.T.R.E. if Christoph Waltz plays Blofeld.
Scott is a great addition to an already impressive cast that includes: Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Léa Seydoux, and Naomie Harris along with Christoph Waltz and Dave Bautista whose villainous ranks he will be joining.
