Dave Bautista Set To Play Villain In Bond 24?
Guardians Of The Galaxy star reported to have signed to play henchman...
He impressed movie fans with his deadpan turn as Drax The Destroyer in the recent hit movie adaptation of Guardians Of The Galaxy - and now Dave Bautista could be in line for another high-profile role.
Currently simply known as Bond 24, the sequel to Skyfall is due in cinemas late next year - so production must now be looming.
A casting call put out earlier this year for the role was seeking "an imposing, extremely physically fit actor... someone very unusual, possibly from a sports background".
And we think it's fair to say that Big Dave fits that bill.
The news is the second Bond 24 casting leak in the last seven days - following a claim last week that French actress Léa Seydoux is set to play the movie's femme fatale.
