Christoph Waltz has reportedly been cast to play the villain in the upcoming James Bond film.
The Oscar winner is joining the action movie as the nemesis of Daniel Craig’s 007 in the as-yet-untitled, 24th installment of the blockbuster franchise, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.
According to the site, “the part is a complex one” and their source told them that ‘It’s not immediately evident whether the part’s friend, or foe, or a bit of both,’ while another source told them the part is ‘extremely cunning’ and ‘A nemesis of sorts’.
If Waltz does sign on as the iconic spy’s foe, he will join new franchise regulars Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, and Ben Whishaw, who will all be reprising their roles from 2012’s Skyfall.
Director Sam Mendes will helm Bond 24, which is slated to hit cinemas next fall.
