Bond 24 seeking an iconic, physically imposing henchman like Oddjob and Jaws

Oddjob-2It seems that Sam Mendes is looking to bring back the classic henchman character for Daniel Craig’s next outing in Bond 24, with MI6-HQ reporting that casting is underway for the main assassin, who is described as a physically imposing henchman in the vein of iconic Bond villains Oddjob (Harold Sakata) and Jaws (Richard Kiel).

According to the site, the character is going by the working name of ‘Hinx’ and will have several altercations with Craig’s 007, along with a driving sequence. The casting breakdown suggest they are looking for a male between 30-45 with an “unusual” look, and possibly from a sports background.

The currently untitled Bond 24 is set for release on October 23rd 2015 in the UK and November 6th 2015 in the States, with Craig joined by returning stars Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) and Ben Whishaw (Q).
