Yesterday Movie Fanatic published the news that the new James Bond website is live and contained in that story was a cast list. You might have noticed that Voldemort himself, Ralph Fiennes, was on that list. So, who is Fiennes set to play?
Fiennes was speaking to the U.K.’s Daily Record recently and said that his role is that of a government agent in Skyfall. OK… that’s not very helpful. Who isn’t a government agent in a James Bond movie, except for the villain?
But, if you read between the lines, Movie Fanatic can crack the code, given what we know about the story of Skyfall. Since the plot has to do with Judi Dench’s M and something from her past that threatens to ruin her career, we believe that Fiennes will play the man who is being set up to replace her due to the scandal that launches Bond into his next mission.
Dench has played M for the last six Bond films and we think that Skyfall will be her last. Who better to replace a UK acting legend than another?
