James Bond will have his work cut out for him if rumors of Dave Bautista's casting aare true. According to Latino Review's sources, he's been hired to play the villain Hinx, described here:
We are looking to follow in the tradition of JAWS and ODDJOB in finding an iconic baddy.
“Hinx (Male, 30 – 45)”
“Ideally over 6? 2?. Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. We are looking for someone very unusual, possibly from a sports background.”
“Height: 180cm – 195cm"
This comes right on the heels of a report that French actress Léa Seydoux might play the film's Bond Girl. The two newcomers would join Daniel Craig in director Sam Mendes' follow-up to Skyfall.
The 24th film in the Bond franchise is expected to begin filming by the end of the year, and arrive in theaters Nov. 6, 2015.
