Ben Whishaw is Q as indicated in this still from Skyfall

Jul. 12, 2012by: Niki Stephens

That's right gays and gals, rumor confirmed!

We all knew that Ben Whishaw was set for a role in SKYFALL, but were not sure what exactly that would be. It was heavily rumored that he would take on the role of Q, Bond's gadget master. The last time that the character was in the franchise was in 2002's DIE ANOTHER DAY when the role was played by John Cleese. Before that, Desmond Llewelyn played the role for 36 years.

This will be the second time that Whishaw co-stars with Daniel Craig. They were last seen together in 2004's LAYER CAKE, which I happen to love. Great soundtrack.

Synopsis: Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bonds loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

GODZILLA RULES

The Godzilla films are the longest running film series. Bond. James Bond is second and still kicks ass. I cant wait for it. "Layer Cake" is a damn good crime drama and must see entertainment.

I really like Whishaw's look here, it reminds me a lot of Matt Smith's Doctor from Doctor Who. They made Q sexy! Who would've thought. Q is an important part of the mythos and the Bond movies just feel incomplete without him. Hopefully he's given a slightly bigger role in this film, as he's most interesting when he's forced out into the field to rescue or otherwise assist James Bond.

Um, yeah. You might want to check that type-o in the first line. Unless, of course, you hope we're all happy.

Thinking out loud

Does 'the threat' turn out to be M's 'sprog'? Her 'swinging sixties' past coming back to haunt her?

FYI Niki

I'm not gay but I read this. I hope that didn't disappoint you but if it did I apologise deeply as I didn't know that this news wasn't aimed at me.

I hope we can still be friends or acquaintances at the least.

Double post

Sorry for the double post. To try to make up for it, I shall quote Wayne's Word:

Garth: Does this seem weird to anybody else? I mean, we're looking down only Wayne's basement, only that's not Wayne's basement. Is that weird?

Wayne: Yeah, that is weird, Garth, I think that was a Haiku!

I'm glad they're taking a more modern approach by having a younger techie as the head of 'applied sciences'.
