Sherlock Star Andrew Scott to Play Villain in Bond 24

by Russ Burlingame

The upcoming James Bond film, colloquially known as Bond 24 and expected to debut its title and cast officially soon, will include Sherlock star Andrew Scott as a villain, The Daily Mirror claims.

Scott, who plays Professor James Moriarty on Sherlock, will square off against Daniel Craig, who will reprise his role as James Bond in the film, which is expected to go into production soon.

Comic book movie stars Léa Seydoux and Dave Bautista are rumored to be joining the film's cast, alongside Christoph Waltz, who will play the film's primary antagonist, reportedly Ernst Stavro Blofeld, James Bond's most recognizable and recurring villain.

The odds seem good that Scott will play an agent of SPECTRE, a spy organization that rivals Bond's, if the Blofeld rumors are true.
