Christoph Waltz Reportedly Joins JAMES BOND 24 As Lead Villain

Christoph Waltz is no stranger to playing a villain, and according to a new report, it sounds as if he may have joined the cast of Sam Mendes' James Bond 24 as the lead villain.

The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye has sent out a Tweet in which he says that Academy Award winning actor Christoph Waltz has joined the cast of James Bond 24 as the movie's lead villain. This was a role which Chiwetel Ejiofor had been in talks for, but The Wrap reveals that those discussions came to nothing and Waltz is now apparently taking over that role.

The site adds that Lea Seydoux and Guardians of the Galaxy's Dave Bautista are both still expected to join the cast as well as a femme fatale and henchman, respectively. Skyfall earned over $1 billion at the box ofice and the currently untitled James Bond 24 reaches us around this time next year. Thoughts?
