More “Skyfall” casting…

Well, the rumour about Naomie Harris playing Moneypenny seems to have been disproven, so it’s time for the makers of the next Bond film, “Skyfall”, to give another nod to the past.

Yep, that’s disgracefully young and lanky Brit actor Ben Whishaw,  who’ll be playing Q in the film.

Talk about your huge shoes to fill.  If you’ve seen him in “Perfume – The Story of A Murderer”, you’ll know that he can do off-kilter and dangerous in his sleep, so it will be interesting to see the direction that Sam Mendes’ Bond is going to take. He’s obviously young, but it might be a bit twee to play up the nerdy whiz-kid angle too much – young fogey, a-la Matt Smith’s take on the Doctor?
