According to MI6.co.uk, British actor Neil Jackson has landed a role as a henchman in Quantum Of Solace. Every Bond film has its henchmen, as it is usually the case that the actual villains aren’t that strong physically, so they get their men to do the dirty work for them. The villain in Quantum Of Solace, Dominic Greene, doesn’t look like he will be bringing out any judo kicks anytime soon, so a henchmen is a must.
Writing on his MySpace page back on Friday 9th November, Jackson wrote “I have just received confirmation that I will be playing the role of Mr. Black in the up-coming Bond movie, tentatively titled Bond 22, set to start shooting in Jan 08.”
His character was renamed during pre-production to Mr Slate.
Jackson updated his MySpace blog on Wednesday 19th December with the news, “I finalized contracts a few days ago to play the role of Mr. Slate in the new, as yet untitled, Bond film. Details are a little sketchy at this point, but I do have a big fight with 007”.
