SKYFALL: Ralph Fiennes Interview - Plus Producer Michael Wilson's Video Welcome to 007.com
There's some question of exactly who Ralph Fiennes (the late Lord Voldemort from the Harry Potter films) will be portraying in the next James Bond movie, Skyfall. And the actor is doing little to clarify the situation.
"I'm allowed to say that I'm a government agent," the actor tells the UK's The Record.
Rumors are, however, that he will be portraying 007's longtime nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld, but, again, Fiennes will say nothing. What he DOES allow, however, is the fact that he's a lifelong fan of the Bond character and the writing of his creator, Ian Fleming.
"I used to be a complete nerd about the books and the detail in them. They are fantastic. There was Fleming's obsession with different kinds of champagne and caviar. He kind of fetishes these things."
The interviewer suggests that if one was to look back at those original novels, Fiennes would actually make an ideal Bond.
“There was a time in my life when that would have appealed to me," he replies. "But I’m a bit on the old side now.”

Skyfall reaches theatres this November, and will mark Daniel Craig's third stint as 007 following Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Sam Mendes serves as director.
