Dave Bautista

After being one of the most surprisingly entertaining parts of Guardians of the Galaxy this past summer, wrestler turned actor Dave Bautista has reportedly landed another big blockbuster role. Latino Review reports Bautista has bagged the iconic henchman role in James Bond 24. Talk of the role surfaced in August with MI-6 revealing that this bad guy was going to be crafted in the mold of Jaws or Oddjob, but different than any of the villains who have been created before. The henchman's name is Hinx (that might be a codename), and will reportedly have several altercations with 007. This is such a huge role for Bautsita!

The news comes hot on the heels of confirmation that Blue is the Warmest Color and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star Lea Seydoux would have a femme fatale role in James Bond 24. However, we're still waiting on any kind of plot details for the James Bond film that is already slated to arrived on November 6th, 2015. Production is slated to begin later this year with Skyfall director Sam Mendes back behind the camera and Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw all reprising their roles from the previous 007 mission. Stay tuned for more.

Wow, im surprised Dave got put in a high-acting, high-caliber movie like this. As long as his lines are kept minimal this should prove to be interesting.

Graig is going to get some asskicking coming at his way. Interested to see if Bautista will actually get a decent career going. He kinda has some charisma wich I can't quite get a grasp on yet...

Interesting development. As long as he doesn't have too many lines, I think he will do amazingly well.
