Christoph Waltz to play Ernst Blofeld in 'Bond 24'
Los Angeles: Actor Christoph Waltz will portray the classic villain Ernst Blofeld in the highly anticipate Bond movie “Bond 24”.
The two-time Oscar winner, who was named as Daniel Craig's (James Bond) latest opponent earlier this month, will bring Ernst Stavro Blofeld back to the big screen for the first time in three decades, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Blofeld is a supervillain from the James Bond series of novels and films, which was created by Ian Fleming.
The fictional character is best known of those villains having been portrayed by Donald Pleasence, Charles Gray, Telly Savalas and Max von Sydow, as well as inspiring Dr. Evil in the “Austin Power” movies.
“Bond 24” will once-again see Craig as 007, with Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris reprising their roles from “Skyfall”.
