With the shooting of Bond 24 set to commence in just a few weeks, we have reports of further casting news. This time, the word on the street is that Inglourious Basterds star Christoph Waltz has signed up for a role. Just what role that is, we don’t know, though I would bet some serious change on Christoph being our villain for Bond 24.
Whilst far from being officially confirmed, this news comes from Daily Mail reporter Baz Bambigboye, who has been extremely consistent with his previous leaks.

With Mark Strong quashing the rumours of his involvement in Bond 24 in recent weeks, this is surely some exciting news!
So, what do you think Bond fans? Let us know in the comments below!
If this is true I have to imagine he’d make a great Bloefeld.
This could be absolutely great. Not sure how SPECTRE would work this day and age… I’ve always liked to think of Quantum as a sort of modern version of the organization… Eco-terrorism / environmental is much more credible these days then stealing nuclear bombs for the blackmail money. Would love for Blofeld to be Mr White’s boss!
I think he’d be a great Blofeld. Now, we’ve all been speculating that Quantum is the new SPECTRE. If it is, bear in mind that it seems everyone associated with Quantum is named for a color. (Or “colour” if you prefer the Brit spelling.) So would that mean Blofeld would have to assume the name “Mr. Blue”?
