It's time for a Bond 23 rumor! This is a pretty tantalizing one, too - it's being reported that none other than Mr. whatever-his-name-was in The Silence of the Lambs, Anthony Hopkins, is being discussed as the villain for the next James Bond adventure. Here's a quote from an anonymous source, who later plunged to his death while on fire:
"The only stumbling block seems to be the number of films he is signing up for. There is a chance the character they want him to play could become a regular feature, like Blofeld back in the day."

Now, stop me if this sounds crazy, but since Casino Royale was a "reboot" of the Bond series, couldn't it be possible that rather than playing a character "like" Blofeld, he's actually playing Blofeld? That could be a pretty cool idea, and casting a star like Hopkins would definitely be a change of pace for the character. We'll see if Hopkins actually gets to stroke the cat or if this is just hot air. (via Moviefone)
