Next James Bond Villain Already Chosen?

by Rich Handley
Skyfall has yet to hit theaters, and yet rumors are already surfacing that Benedict Cumberbatch (of Sherlock, The Hobbit and Star Trek Into Darkness fame) is being pursued to play the villain in the as-yet-untitled James Bond 24 (or 25, if you count Never Say Never Again... which you should, dammit).

Benedict is everywhere these days, so it's no surprise that the Bond producers would want to court him (though his plate would seem to be pretty full already). He's a fantastic actor with a great range and a good deal of gravitas, and he'd likely add to the film's box-office draw. For James Bond, Cumberbatch would seem a natural fit.

The real question, if the rumor proves true, is this: Will he be playing Kamal Khan?
