Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, The Boogeyman and Oppenheimer star David Dastmalchian has ambitions firmly locked onto a sought-after goal; playing the role of a villain in a James Bond movie.
The 007 series will be expanded in the future. The identity of the next James Bond, let alone the malevolent persona who will confront him is a mystery. Nonetheless, Dastmalchian’s suggestion has piqued everyone’s interest.
In a recent interview with Slash Film, he expressed his desires to play the villain in the movie. “
Trust me when I say that I can bring something to an enemy of 007, whether he or she or they be played in a way that no one has ever seen Bond brought to life before, which is of course the way that you guys always do it. I think there’s no one to push Bond to the limits of their capabilities the way that I could, and I would love to do it. So there’s my pitch to them. I can’t wait for them to read this. And then I will owe you when or if I ever get that role, I guess 10%.”
Those who have seen Dastmalchian’s performance in his darker roles would readily attest to his natural skill in becoming a truly unsettling adversary for Bond. While what lies ahead remains uncertain, the idea of casting him in such a role gains strong support due to his impressive history.
