Rhys Ifans, who will be seen next summer as Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man, is apparently the latest actor to join the cast of Bond 23.
“Ifans will appear in the film, as well as Javier Bardem, who will play the baddie,” says my man with the golden gun. “Much of the filming will take place in South Africa.”
Craig, 43, and Ifans, also 43, appeared together in Enduring Love, a 2004 adaptation of Ian McEwan’s novel. Ifans played Craig’s stalker.
Earlier this month we heard that Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem had all signed on (although they have yet to be officially confirmed by MGM). Director Sam Mendes is certainly putting together an impressive cast, and we should get solid casting news shortly as filming is set to begin later this year for an October 2012 release
