We'll always picture him as the HIGHlarious Wesley Snipes, but we think he definitely has the acting chops to pull this one off!
British actor Michael Sheen, who has been featured on 30 Rock and in the Twilight movies, is reportedly been cast as the new villain in the recently announced new James Bond film, directed by Sam Mendes!
A source explains:
'He brings a real intense and creepy quality to the table.'
The insider also revealed that he recommended to producer Barbara Broccoli by screenwriter Peter Morgan, with whom Sheen has worked on a variety of projects, and she immediately found him to be be the 'perfect fit' for the part!
We have a feeling that Bond is going to be back, and better than ever, in this new flick!
