It has been reported that the Oscar-winning actor is set to play the main antagonist in the upcoming Bond 25 film. Apparently, he was offered the role a few months back, but he had to decline it due to his Mr. Robot filming schedule. But now, as his schedule is not as packed, he may be joining the cast. Sources also reported that the film will cast three more major roles, two of them being female leads, and the other one, a CIA agent who is an accomplice to James Bond.
