Rami Malek Is Said To Be Starring As The ‘Bond 25’ Villain After Oscar Win | Film News
After winning an Oscar for his performance as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody earlier this year, Rami Malek is now set to star alongside Daniel Craig for Bond 25, in Craig’s last performance as James Bond.
The much delayed film is set to begin shooting in April this year, and after being in consideration for a while now, it seems his Oscar win has finally secured his place as the next villain.
While it was said at first that there would be scheduling conflicts due to his role in Mr. Robot, where he plays a hacker with an anxiety disorder, this has now been resolved and he will appear in the Bond film.
After the success of Bohemian Rhapsody, Malek received criticism for his acceptance speech, but luckily this has not tainted his place as the new villain, but has this to say as a warning for the writers:
“Malek, both of whose parents emigrated from Egypt to the US, is on record as choosing to reject roles that portray ‘Arabs or Middle Easterners in a negative light’ after a bad experience on the TV series 24.” – The Guardian.
