In addition to Javier Bardem being in talks for a villain role, Mail Online is reporting that Ralph Fiennes is also in discussions to join Daniel Craig and Judi Dench in James Bond 23, to be directed by Sam Mendes.
The site says that they are talking about him playing ‘a darkly complex’ role. It says “the part is one of extreme complexity and only an actor of great ability and dexterity can take it on and Ralph’s name is top of our list.”
Mail Online adds that it’s not the same part that Bardem is in talks for.
Fiennes will be seen one last time as Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, opening on July 15.
