Bond 23: Albert Finney Joins Bond Cast

A few months ago, James Bond fans weren’t sure that Bond 23 would ever get made. MGM nearly scrapped the film due to financial reasons, but now the latest Bond movie looks stronger than ever. Javier Bardem has already been cast to play the new villain, and now the film is getting even more star power with the casting of Albert Finney.

Finney, who has been nominated for five Oscars, will play the superior to James Bond’s boss M (played by Judi Dench.) BondMovies reports that M is usually the authoritative figure in the Bond movies, so the introduction of Finney probably means that she can’t handle the level of danger in Bond 23. Is the Quantum Organization that dangerous? Does Bond go rogue? Will Finney call in more OO agents to help James Bond in the new film?

There isn’t much known about the plot of the new Bond film, but one thing’s for sure, Finney should feel right at home filming the spy caper. Finney played a major part in the third installment of the Jason Bourne series and is currently reprising the role for “Bourne Legacy.”

Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, and Albert Finney… Bond 23 has the potential to be a classic James Bond movie. Bond 23, which is tentatively titled, “Skyfall” will be released in November 0f 2012.

Do you think Albert Finney is a good addition to the Bond 23 cast?
