New 007 villain 'will follow in the tradition of Jaws and Oddjob'

The next James Bond movie won't be out until November 2015, but the pieces are starting to come together. Slashfilm reports that a recent casting call for Bond 24 says the filmmakers are "looking to follow in the tradition of JAWS and ODDJOB in finding an iconic baddy" — referring to the memorable henchmen from The Spy Who Loved Me and Goldfinger.

The villain — named "Hinx" — will be male, aged 30 to 45, and ideally over 6'2". "We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor," says the casting call. "He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. We are looking for someone very unusual, possibly from a sports background."
