Rhys Ifans Re-team with Daniel Craig in James Bond 23

Rhys Ifans, James Bond

Rhys Ifans, known for his portrayal of character Jed Parry in Enduring Love (Daniel Craig’s stalker) who will appear as Dr. Curt Connors The Lizard in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man has been also cast in a new James Bond film, in an unknown role. A source close to Telegraph’s Richard Eden, said:
Ifans will appear in the film, as well as Javier Bardem, who will play the baddie… Much of the filming will take place in South Africa.”
Bond producers also have yet to make the official announcement for Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris and Ralph Fiennes that have recently been rumored to have roles in the iconic movie. Bardem is anticipated to play the villain, while Harris is said to be taking on the role of Miss Moneypenny and Fiennes is seen to be a second villain. It was confirmed that screenwriter Patrick Marber (Closer) came on to replace Peter Morgan in writing the script. And the only confirmed cast members are Craig and Judi Dench. Sam Mendes’ yet-untitled James Bond 23 is set for a November 9, 2012 release with filming expected to begin in October in South Africa and India. As for Ifans, known for playing Hugh Grant’s dissolute house mate in Notting Hill, he also won a BAFTA for his portrayal of comedian Peter Cook in the TV film Not Only But Always. Furthermore,  he is a member of the Welsh rock groups Super Furry Animals and The Peth, and he played Xenophilius Lovegood in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. The curiosity of Enduring Love was that Ifans had to share a passionate kiss with Craig. Regarding that kissing scene, Ifans said:
I spent the whole shoot winding up Dan Craig saying, ‘Only four days to go now, Dan, darling, before our snogging scene.’ Even now, after two Bonds, Dan still maintains that the hardest stunt he’s ever done was getting to grips with my mouth.”
However, I hope this won’t harm Bond’s macho reputation. Check out this high emotional scene in a 2004 adaptation of Ian McEwan’s novel. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDLqaoTV4sQ&feature=player_detailpage[/youtube]
