The New Q!

Article by James
Now while film legend Desmond Llewelyn played Q for literally decades, the role of M5’s clever-contraption-maker was occupied by the legendary John Cleese in 2002’s Die Another Day, and now we have a personal fav of mine – Ben Whishaw. If you don’t know the name, he will be familiar, as he has occupied a number of roles over the years that have garnered attention.

2009’s Bright Star saw him lead as John Keats alongside Abbie Cornish, and if you haven’t seen 2008’s revamp of Brideshead Revisited and 2006’s sublime Perfume: The Story of a Murderer then I have to say I am a little dismayed. Check him out people. This is one of those actors that have been hailed as one to watch by the majority of critics and with reason. The mainstream release of Bond will throw Whishaw into the mainstream and this can only be a good thing. He simply isn’t mainstream.
