Benedict Cumberbatch to be new Bond Villain

The 'Sherlock' actor is expected to be signed up for the next instalment of the 007 franchise, which will see him star alongside current Bond, Daniel Craig.

A source told the Daily Express newspaper: "Benedict is considered perfect Bond villain material. Work on the next film will begin next year and the plan is for Benedict to be on board.

He grew up watching Bond, so it would be a childhood ambition fulfilled. Playing a Bond villain is one of the plum roles in film history and he'd jump at the chance."
The 23rd Bond movie, 'Skyfall', is released next month while the next film - the one that will star Benedict - is due out in 2014.

While Daniel is the only star confirmed for the 24th movie, it emerged last week that Ralph Fiennes,
There is also plans for another Bond film in 2016.

Benedict was recently cast as a baddie in the next 'Star Trek' film and as the dragon Smaug in the forthcoming trilogy of 'Hobbit' films, which also sees his 'Sherlock' co-star Martin Freeman in the lead role of Bilbo Baggins

Is Simon Pegg in Star Wars: Episode VII?

Source: Total Film

We love Simon Pegg. We love Star Wars. We also loved Spaced, which sees Simon taking a torch to his Star Wars memorabilia because he hates George Lucas' prequel trilogy so much. The minute JJ Abrams was announced as the director of Star Wars: Episode VII, we prayed to the maker that Pegg hadn't burned his chances of appearing in it along with his Jar Jar plushie. But what's that in the distance? Cause for optimism? Help us, Benedict Cumberbatch; you're ...

Abrams, he’s visited the set, but him appearing would take people out of the movie. So he continues to say he won’t be on screen in Episode VII. But he also won’t, and hasn’t, said that he’s not in the movie a ...

Last week, we learned that Paula Deen was launching a new online subscription “network” that would feature live cooking shows with Paula, for the really hardcore butter fans who can’t get what they want from The Food Network & the Cooking Channel.
