Just weeks after we reported that Christoph Waltz is playing the main villain in Bond 24, The Daily Mail claims that the actor is actually playing the classic James Bond nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld in this highly-anticipated sequel.
We reported in November 2013 that Eon Productions won the rights back to the Blofeld character and his evil organization S.P.E.C.T.R.E., after MGM won a 50-year legal dispute with the estate of writer Kevin McClory, who created Blofeld and S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Blofeld has appeared in six 007 movies, played by Anthony Dawson in From Russia with Love and Thunderball, Donald Pleasence in You Only Live Twice, Telly Savalas in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Charles Gray in Diamonds Are Forever and John Hollis in For Your Eyes Only. Max von Sydow also played Blofeld in the "unofficial" James Bond movie Never Say Never Again.Read More
There is no official confirmation from Sony at this time, but the Daily Mail is claiming Django Unchained star Christoph Waltz has signed on as the main villain in Bond 24.

It has been rumored that the Blofeld character and his villainous organization S.P.E.C.T.R.E. may feature into the storyline of Bond 24, with Sony winning back the rights almost exactly a year ago. That has never been confirmed by anyone associated with the project.Read More
