Q returns for Skyfall

It’s just been confirmed that the character of Q will return in the new James Bond film Skyfall.  MI6’s technical genius and gadget boffin will be played by Ben Wishaw, a 31 year-old who has previously appeared Brideshead Revisited and the TV series The Hour.  This is the first time that Q will be played by an actor younger than Bond and is certainly a bold move.   I picture this Q as something of a geeky, nervous type that Bond mocks mercilessly.  However he’s portrayed it certainly can’t be worse than John Cleese’s horrible Q (or was it R?) from the Brosnan films.

  1. It is a shame that I have no enthusiasm for Bond anymore. The franchise really needs a great film to kick-start it again but I don’t think it’ll happen.
