The good people at Wired are included in that group, and once again Mr. Hawking is not going to disappoint. In the interview, the discussion of course turned to film and Hawking revealed one of his own silver screen dreams. Something that you may not have guessed, but totally fits when you think about it: He would love to play a Bond villain.
|No Mr. Bond...I expect you to die.|
In the interview, as seen in the Telegraph, Hawking says his computerized voice would lend him a Bond villain appeal:
"My ideal role would be a baddie in a James Bond film. I think the wheelchair and the computer voice would fit the part."
This, is unsurprisingly from the mind of a genius in every sense of the world, is a great idea. Hollywood, it is your move.
The rumors are that Christoph Walz is to be the next Bond villain, but perhaps he would make an exception and bow out for the man.
