Eon Looking For “Imposing” Henchman For Bond 24

August 24th, 2014 by Dave Bowling Comments

Eon Production and director Sam Mendes are looking to cast an iconic henchman for the next James Bond film, according to website

According to the site, Daniel Craig will be facing a “physically imposing henchman” in the film.

“Casting has begun for the main assassin, with the search specifically focussed on someone extremely physically fit and over 6′ 2″. Whoever wins the role will have several altercations with Daniel Craig’s 007 throughout the film and also a driving sequence. Former sports athletes will be under consideration along with anyone ‘very unusual’. The character has the working name of ‘Hinx’ (which may change before shooting starts) and is said to be between 30 and 45 years old… The goal is to find the next Jaws or Oddjob – a henchman so different to anything that has gone before that they will become instantly iconic in the film series,” a report on the site states.

Sam Mendes is expected to start filming the new James Bond movie this December at Pinewood Studios. The release date has been announced for 6 November 2015.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes.

The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
