Gillian Anderson is tiny at 160 cm 5' 3'', so I thought  so she has to be a great actress to be threatening. Then I Googled Angelina Jolie and discovered she is only nine centimeters taller at  169 cm. I thought she was really tall!

she's a pretty tiny lady, but could indeed make for a good scenery chewing villain.
I once saw a teevee show where she played Wallis Simpson. She was awesome! imperious, pretentious, short-tempered and completely abusive! even tuff old CraigBond would have been cowering before her wrath.

Gillian Anderson is one of those actors who they need to find a role for in a Bond film. Villain, MI6 Agent, CIA, politician, she would be great in any role. She truly is an American/British hybrid and can be as British as British can be or as American as apple pie. Height is not an issue....movie magic always takes care of that.

There are rumours about Angelina Jolie as the villan in Bond25. She will be in Maleficent 2, and filming started in April this year. The release date will be in 2020, but that movie must  need a lot of  time in post-production. Will she be finished on Maleficent 2 by December?

I've just had a horrible thought - what if they go 1 step further than Blofeld having plastic surgery, and have Blofeld have a sex change? With Jolie as Blofeld! ajb007/amazed This would also go with the rumours of B25 being a very different idea...

Or she could be Nena Bismaquer...but I REALLY hope Jolie isn’t in the film at all.

Danny Boyle's former girlfriend, Rosario Dawson would also be a good fit for a role in Bond 25. She's a very good actor, incredibly beautiful and exotic looking and more age appropriate for Craig.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I'd throw Emily Blunt's name into the mix - she's British, a great actress (fantastic in Sicario and A Quiet Place), can definitely be a badass action star (Edge of Tomorrow) and I'd say a perfect age for a fellow SIS agent or maybe even villain.

Great choice! She would be perfect.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

other candidates for female villain, being actresses of a certain age who can chew up scenery the way a Bond villain should:


Tilda Swinton, done lots of weird stuff, and can often look a bit creepy, what with that bone structure and all.

Cate Blanchett, has been the big baddie in Indiana Jones and Thor movies, very good at imperious.

and did anybody catch Julianne Moore in the Kingsmen sequel? she had a meatgrinder to punish minions who had disappointed her.


I think I'd prefer any one of those three above Angelina Jolie, who is just a bit too much Hollywood royalty and not so much a character actor.

Ha, yeah, that would play great. Purvis and Wade might even sign off on that one.  ajb007/shifty

Variety reported that DC is getting $25 million for Bond 25.

So, unless the dollar, pound exchange rate has dramatically changed, I call BS on The Sun.

All this discussion is based on the Reddit 'source' right?

Isn't it amazing that now the Daily Express newspaper is not running Bond25 stories, that Reddit person is not saying anything.

I wonder if the Daily Express made up the Reddit BS for his stories?

I'm looking forward to some credible casting rumours in the next couple of months, as they usually start coming out of the woodwork about now, care of well connected journos like the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye.

And based on the fact that the first Spectre trailer dropped on 27 March 2015, we only have 303 days until the first Bond25 trailer...

So this is DC filming the Heineken (sponsors) commercial which I guess is part of the deal for Bond 25.

I know its only a commercial but I get the impression things are way more advanced then we think  ajb007/cheers

Just spotted this. Looks like it could be a promotion as I notice he is wearing a wedding ring, but I am more excited about (maybe) a Seamaster 300 on a leather NATO, inverted no less. Enjoy

Nice to see DC back in the tux. Facially, (at least from the paparazzi photos) he pretty much looks the same as he did in SPECTRE. A bit of work, a bit of make-up and some good lighting can work wonders. Throw in another six months of gym work....and James Bond is back ajb007/biggrin  ajb007/martini  ajb007/cheers

It’s really amazing to watch that story unfold... Daily Mail had the scoop that he’s filming a Heineken commercial, and within the hour movie sites put it up as him filming scenes for Bond 25.

This is gonna be a long 18 months...

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I worked for 138 for almost 10 years, and there have never been adverts filmed before the production has taken place.

Im also quite sure that unless a film is in production or up to a few months after production the creative partnership* cant use Bond to advertise.

Moneypenny was never Moneypenny, until it turns out she was, same with Q and the new M and Blofeld ?

*The creative partnership are a group that are part of product placement

It could all be made up because of all of the trouble that they have had with the public/Bond fans/Anoraks in the past. now with people just taking time out just to follow and film the production crew and put it all over the internet, times of filming and locations, it must be a  nightmare for the crew.
