Rhys Ifans will not let this opportunity slip through his scaly fingers. Rhys will be appearing in next years’ Amazing Spider-Man movie as Dr. Curt Connors, which is most assuredly a tentpole pic for Sony and their marketing. Who know, maybe he’ll get a cereal. It’s a big opportunity and he intends to parlay that opportunity into regular consistent work and is aiming to re-team with Dan Craig for the next James Bond movie.

The Telegraph reports that Ifans will appear in James Bond’s next and also confirms again that Javier Bardem will play the film’s villain. The article also states that “much of the filming will take place in South Africa.” Ifans and Craig have worked together previously; Ifans played Craig’s stalker in 2004’s ENDURING LOVE.
Smart man! Don’t just settle for any ol movie, get yourself involved in another franchise! It works. I also hear that he’s also a pretty decent actor and may add some more talent to the film that needs to redeem itself for those disappointed by Quantum of Solace. I think it’s a move in the right direction, but seriously: Javier Bardem, Voldemort, AND the Lizard? Bond has his work cut out for him.
