Following on from the news that Naomie Harris will play Moneypenny in Bond 23, The Telegraph has managed to get the scoop from the director himself, Sam Mendes that Welsh actor, Rhys Ifans will also appear in the movie alongside Javier Bardem who is to appear as the main villain in the film. Daniel Craig is back as 007 and we can expect to see the movie when it’s released 26th October 2012.

Ifans played opposite Craig previously in Enduring Love back in 2004 when they had to do a kissing scene. I doubt we’ll see much more of that in Bond 23 but I guess never say never! No news as yet on who Ifans will play  but so far the film is beginning to shape up nicely.
