Rhys Ifans joining Bond 23

The Telegraph claims Welsh actor Rhys Ifans is joining the cast of the Sam Mendes-directed James Bond sequel. The film is being distributed by Columbia Pictures, the studio behind Ifans's next two releases, Roland Emmerich's Anonymous and The Amazing Spider-Man (where he plays the Lizard).

The paper didn't say who Ifans would play, but if Naomie Harris is indeed the new Miss Moneypenny then we think Ifans would make for a great Q.

The Telegraph's source adds that Bond 23 will be shot largely in South Africa.

Ifans previously played Daniel Craig's stalker in Enduring Love, where he shared a kiss with the future 007. Ifans' other credits include Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pirate Radio, Notting Hill and Little Nicky.
