Andrew Scott Will Be Starring In The Next James Bond Film, "Spectre"

Sam Mendes will be returning as director, and Christoph Waltz is also joining the cast.

Andrew Scott, who played Moriarty in BBC's Sherlock, will be in the next James Bond movie, playing a character called Denbigh.

Unfortunately, it seems the Sherlock star will not be playing Moriarty. It's also unclear whether he's playing a villain in the new film, despite lots of recent press speculation.

Christoph Waltz from Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds is playing Oberhauser.

There's speculation that his name is actually Blofeld.

Bond 24 is officially called #Spectre. Does this add more credence to the rumour that Christoph Waltz is Blofeld?

However, other people have pointed this out.

Everyone assumes Christoph Whaltz is playing Blofeld (& he probably is) but it would be a fun bait & switch if it’s actually Andrew Scott

And why is it called Spectre?

SPECTRE acronym for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. Was headed by Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

There's a lot of speculation about whether the new Spectre logo is a clue for the plot of the film.

Notice anything about the SPECTRE logo? You're clever, @007.

Also, in case you're you're interested, a new James Bond car, an Aston Martin DB10, was revealed at the press conference.

It's got four wheels, a nice windscreen, and probably goes quite fast.
