Jesper Christensen confirms he will play Mr White in new James Bond film SPECTRE
Danish actor Jesper Christensen has confirmed that he will be reprising his role as Mr White in SPECTRE, the newly announced James Bond film.
Christensen wasn't unveiled along with the rest of the cast yesterday (December 4th), but confirmed to Euroman that he will return in the new instalment.
He said: "I am looking forward to working with Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig. It is a truly exciting script and a very capable team. So it'll be fun..."
Christensen's character Mr White was nowhere to be found in Skyfall, but he played a key role in both Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace as the liaison for the mysterious criminal organisation Quantum.
Details of SPECTRE were unveiled on Thursday by director Sam Mendes, which sees Christoph Waltz, Monica Belucci and Lea Seydoux joining the cast.
Waltz will play a character named Oberhauser, not, as rumoured, the classic Bond villain Blofeld, Belucci will play a character named Lucia Sciarra, while Blue Is The Warmest Colour star Lea Seydoux will portray a character named Madeleine Swann.
Sherlock star Andrew Scott is also joining the cast, playing a character named Denbigh who works at MI6. He will join the returning Rory Kinnear, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris, who all reprise their roles. Guardians Of The Galaxy star Dave Bautista is also in the cast, playing a henchman named Mr Hinx.
The film will be released in the UK on November 6th in 2015.
