Check Out The New ‘Q’ In “Skyfall”
One of the major pillars of the James Bond mythology was missing from the first two (pretty fantastic) movies featuring Daniel Craig as Bond. In the upcoming Skyfall, that will be remedied as we Q is set to rejoin us. Bond’s go-to guy for all the cool gadgets the spy is known for will now played by British actor (and Craig’s Layer Cake co-star) Ben Whishaw.
Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli commented: “It’s a real thrill to confirm the return of Q in SKYFALL played by the enormously talented, Ben Whishaw. We are delighted to have this beloved character back in the series.”
I really dig that Q is back. I don’t think he will be as gimmicky as the previous incarnations were as the series is a lot more serious this time. I have a feeling it will be more of a dry, subtle British humour take on things which works for me as well.
Skyfall opens October 26 in Europe and November 9 in the U.S.
