"Bond 24" starts shooting in six weeks on Dec 6th and within 2 days the production have closed deals to fill the parts of the unique Bond femme fatale character and the intimidating henchman baddie.
In the beautiful female role French actresses Lea Seydoux has been chosen. Known particularly well for her part in the sensual "Blue is the Warmest Color". She will fit the bill perfectly as she is the natural combination of beauty, temptation and mesmerizing acting.
In the role of the man who's going to teach Bond a powerful lesson is a former MMA fighter and professional wrestler Dave Bautista. Who's hot off the success of "Guardians of the Galaxy" where he played the role of Drax the Destroyer. There he was not only the brute force behind the team, but also the dry comic relief and the hidden sentimental brother in arms.
Both casting choices are enough to get excited, but I feel there will another casting announcement soon. Because one of these two could be possibly the main villain, however as Bond films usually follow a predictable character structure. There is always one obvious main villain to the femme fatale and brute villain. So stay tuned..
