Anthony Hopkins As Xenia Onatopp? Rumored For James Bond's New Villain image
This story starts with a warning: Donít believe anything youíre about to read. It comes from the most unreliable British tabloid in existence, a publication proven to falsify information in order to generate interest. Thereís no way this is true, but weíre reporting it anyway, because we donít filter the news, we just tell you about it and leave the rest up to you. Besides, wild speculation is fun, and movie talk is supposed to be fun, isnít it?

The Sun claims Sir Anthony Hopkins could be the villain of the next Bond movie. They cite a vague, unspecified source who says the only thing holding the deal up is the number of films MGM wants him to commit to.

While itís true that Hopkins plays a good villain, he has played so many bad guys by now that itís rapidly becoming a clichť. You know what the next Bond movie doesnít need? A clichť. And while itís true that the best Bond movies often have great bad guys, that doesnít necessarily mean they have memorable criminal masterminds. In my mind GoldenEye is still the best Bond movie, and whoís the movieís most memorable villain? Xenia Onatopp, the Famke Janssen played hitwoman who kills men by seducing them into her bed and crushing them beneath her thighs. Anthony Hopkins is no Xenia Onatopp. I donít think he even wears high-heels. If they hire Hopkins, heíll definitely be some sort of criminal mastermind. Thatís what he does.

Chime in Bond fans, would you like to see Anthony Hopkins facing off against Daniel Craig as James Bondís next foe? Let us know in the comments below.
