Bond 24 villain revealed: Sherlock star Andrew Scott to take on Daniel Craig's 007 in new film

The actor, who plays Moriarty in Sherlock, has been hand-picked for the role in the new James Bond movie

Sherlock star Andrew Scott, who plays the TV detective’s nemesis Moriarty, is set to appear in the new James Bond movie as a villain.

The Irish actor, 38, who found fame in the hit BBC show four years ago, will play another baddie in the highly anticipated 007 flick - which has the working title of Bond 24.

Dubliner Andrew is set to appear alongside returning cast members Daniel Craig, who plays the secret agent, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Naomie Harris along with Léa Seydoux, Dave Bautista and Christoph Waltz who are reported to be joining the cast.

The movie, directed by Sam Mendes, is set to be released in October 2015, with the cast and title officially announced tomorrow.

 

Andrew is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch and break Hollywood.

An insider told the Mirror: “Andrew was hand-picked for a role in the new Bond movie after film bosses loved his star turn in Sherlock.

“Casting directors thought he was perfect to play a baddie and they wanted to use his existing Sherlock profile - and amp it up to the next level.

“Andrew is hoping the move will see him leap from TV to the big screen, where he can eventually divide his time between London and LA. He knows this is his big break.”

Andrew has previously admitted that BAFTA award-winning show Sherlock had changed his life and opened many doors in the acting world.

 

 

He said: “Sherlock has changed all our careers, and I’m really pleased about that. It gives you the benefit of the doubt because executives like to see recognisable faces.

“It was overwhelming to be on a TV show that is quite so popular. That took me totally by surprise. People had an instant affection for it from the first episode.

"The reaction was extraordinary. People still come up to me in the street all the time, wanting to talk about it.”

But he admitted earlier this year that he did not want to be typecast as a baddie, while promoting Brit comedy The Stag.

He said: “I was looking forward to playing something less dark. I’ve done a lot of comedy in the theatre, but in recent years I’ve done projects that are a little bit more serious in nature.”

Irish Sherlock star Andrew Scott: 'Gay marriage is pretty cool'

"I don't believe people are intrinsically homophobic. I think they're ignorant, and they need to be exposed to things," said actor, famous for his chilling portrayal of villain Moriarty in the BBC's Sherlock.

The 37-year-old from Churchtown, south Dublin, was speaking ahead of the release of his new movie, Pride, where he co-stars with The Wire actor Dominic West.

The film is the true story about how gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender activists gave financial support to miners during the lengthy National Union of Mineworkers strike in Britain in the 1980s.

Scott plays a young man forced to turn away from his hometown and his religious mother his because of his sexuality.

That's in contrast to the actor's own personal experience of coming out, which was a happy one.

Scott is in a long-term relationship in London and said it's "pretty cool" that gay marriage has finally been legalised in Britain.

"Sometimes I think people talk about different types of sexuality as if the were invented in 1973," he said on the delayed gay marriage legislation in Britain.

"It's going on since the dawn of humanity, and will continue until the end of humanity, whenever that may be," said Scott.

The Government here has pledged to hold a referendum on gay marriage next year.

Meanwhile, having portrayed a variety of straight and gay characters throughout his career, Scott said he has no preference between the two.

"In relation to this film [Pride], people keep talking about the notion of 'playing gay'. Which I always think is preposterous... when you've got ten leading characters who are gay, you're not playing 'the gay one'.

"This is a character where it's much more about his nationality, his national identity, anyway."

The movie, a comedy drama, also features performances by West as well as Bafta-winner Bill Nighy.

Growing up in Dublin in the 1980s, Scott - who also starred Irish comedy The Stag - developed his own views on the strike and the reign of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

"I remember the miners strike, of course, and I remember her presence. I remember that feeling of hatred," he said.

"I really do hate the idea of us and them, the idea that you have to be naturally suspicious of people that are different to you," said Scott.

Clips & deutscher Trailer zur britischen Komödie Pride

Der britische Film Pride will euch gleichzeitig zum Lachen und zum Weinen bringen. Der Film erzählt eine wahre Geschichte mit viel Humor und Leidenschaft. Wir haben den deutschen Trailer und ein Trio an englischsprachigen Clips für euch.

Pride

Es ist das Jahr 1984. In Großbritannien tut Margaret Thatcher ihr bestes, das Leben von möglichst vielen unterprivilegierten Menschen zu zerstören. Der britische Bergarbeiterstreik ist auf dem Höhepunkt und die Polizei wird mit viel Aufwand von den Städten in die Provinz verfrachtet, um die revoltierenden Arbeiter in Schach zu halten. Diese können sich in dieser schwierigen Zeit nur mithilfe von Spenden über Wasser halten.

Zur gleichen Zeit kämpfen in London die Schwulen und Lesben für ihre Rechte. Dank der AIDS-Krise sind die Vorurteile der Gesellschaft und der Regierung stärker denn je. Genau wie die Minenarbeiter gehen sie auf die Straße und kämpfen gegen Diskriminierung. Da beide Gruppen gegen einen gemeinsamen Feind kämpfen, hat der jungen Aktivist Mark (Ben Schnetzer) eine Idee: Er gründet die Organisation Lesben und Schwule für Bergarbeiter. Er will Spenden für die hungernden Bergarbeiter in einem kleinen walisischen Dorf sammeln und mobilisiert skeptische Freunde und Bekannte für seine Mission.

Pride von Regisseur Matthew Warchus reiht sich ins britische Genre der Alternative-Heritage-Filme ein, die in den Neunzigern als Antwort auf die Thatcher-Jahre und auf die trockenen Kostümfilme dieser Zeit entstanden. Filme wie Brassed Off - Mit Pauken und TrompetenGanz oder gar nichtBilly Elliot - I Will Dance oder We Want Sex stellten sich auf die Seite der Arbeiter und erzählten berührende, unterhaltsame Geschichten vor einem faszinierenden politischen Hintergrund. Geschlechterverhältnisse, Sexualität und Minderheiten sind oft wichtige Themen in diesen Filmen. 

Die Thematik, der Sinn für Humor und der visuelle Stil von Pride sind mit den oben genannten Filmen zu vergleichen. Außerdem kann der Film mit einem grandiosen Achtziger Jahre-Soundtrack und einer großartigen Besetzung glänzen. Hier treffen Veteranen der britischen Film- und Theaterwelt (Imelda StauntonBill NighyPaddy Considine, Dominic West) auf junge Talente (Schnetzer, George MacKayAndrew ScottFaye Marsay und Joseph Gilgun) und formen ein sehr starkes Ensemble. 

Pride basiert auf einer wahren Geschichte und startet am 30. Oktober in den deutschen Kinos. Falls ihr noch eine weitere Empfehlung braucht, solltet ihr auf dem englischen Kritiker Phil de Semlyen hören, der auf Twitter meinte: "It's also the single greatest film to feature Imelda Staunton waving a dildo around."
