Christoph Waltz to play Blofeld

In a highly-anticipated announcement, it was confirmed today that Christoph Waltz, best known for his role in “Django Unchained,” will play classic Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld in the upcoming Bond 24 film.

Blofeld’s character has been the subject of legal battles for decades, but with MGM settling a lawsuit last year with writer Kevin McClory over the rights to SPECTRE and Blofeld, the iconic villain is set to make a comeback.

As one of the most recognizable villains in the Bond franchise, it’s no surprise that MGM would want him back, and Waltz seems like the perfect fit for the role. Fans are eagerly anticipating what the talented actor will bring to the character.

Directed once again by Sam Mendes, shooting for the film is scheduled to start in January, with a release date set for November 6th, 2015. Bond enthusiasts can hardly wait to see what the film has in store.
