It was revealed last year that the henchman would make a comeback to the Bond series. Good news appears then since we now know it’s Bautista and above is the first official image. Here’s a recent description of the casting for the role.
Casting has begun for the main assassin, with the search specifically focussed on someone extremely physically fit and over 6′ 2″. Whoever wins the role will have several altercations with Daniel Craig’s 007 throughout the film and also a driving sequence. Former sports athletes will be under consideration along with anyone ‘very unusual’. The character has the working name of ‘Hinx’ (which may change before shooting starts) and is said to be between 30 and 45 years old.
The sound of Craig mixing it up with a henchman is appealing. Interesting weapon he has there, a double barrelled pistol. This is said to be Daniel Craig’s last Bond.
Make it a good one!
