Chiwetel Ejiofor Eyed for James Bond Villain

After scoring big with Javier Bardem as its last Bond villain, MGM and Sony may be targeting another Oscar-nominated actor to play 007′s nemesis in the next James Bond pic.

Sources tell Variety that Chiwetel Ejiofor is the top choice to play the villain in the next installment in the Bond series. No offer has been made yet, and scheduling would still have to be worked out, but sources insist he is the front-runner for the job.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think he would be a great addition to the film.

Yeah, I can see him as a good villain. I hope they give more screen time to the villain in the next Bond movie. I thought the villain wasn't utilized the most in Skyfall. If he had been, I could have seen an Oscar nomination going Bardem's way.

I can see what you mean, but that served as a point for the film though.

-Going on so long wondering who's behind everything.
