Professor Stephen Hawking has recently said in an interview with Wired Magazine that his idea role would be as a baddie in a Bond film.
He feels that his unique voice and appearance would make him perfect for the part. He said: “My ideal role would be a baddie in a James Bond film,” he said. “I think the wheelchair and the computer voice would fit the part.”
Hawking suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Yes the same terrible disease that you threw a bucket of water over your head for a few months ago.
Unfortunately for Hawking it seems that Christoph Waltz is set to appear as the next Bond villain. Although it’s not yet confirmed whose side he’ll be on, that’s what most people are thinking.
But what’s to say he can’t appear in the next Bond film? Most bad guys die by the end of the film they appear in. Mind you, the professor is 72. Maybe they could work together?
