The Hour’s Ben Whishaw cast as Q in Skyfall

Ok, some more news coming out about the upcoming Bond 23 or Skyfall to give it it’s proper title. For the first time since the Daniel Craig reboot we will have a Q!


The MI6 tech genius, most famously played for years by Desmond Llewelyn and most recently by John Cleese, will be played by Ben Whishaw. The Londoner has been most recently starring as Freddie in the BBC’s excellent The Hour, and will be seen by some as an odd and rather young choice fir the iconic Q, but I’m sold. Think he’ll be an excellent choice, great actor.



Skyfall will be directed by Sam Mendes, and will star Daniel Craig as Bond again and Judi Dench as M. The all-star cast also features Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Naomie Harris. It is due for release in the UK on the 26th October 2012, the US on the 9th November and Australia on the 22nd November.
