Helen McCrory Joins Skyfall
Ola Rapace also on for new Bond outing

Helen McCrory Joins Skyfall

While the big launch for the next James Bond film, Skyfall, happened last week, director Sam Mendes is not quite finished adding to the cast. And why would he be, since Bond outings always boast big ensembles? The latest names added to the list are Helen McCrory and Ola Rapace.

McCrory may be best known for her appearances as Narcissa Malfoy in three of the Harry Potter films, but she’s also been seen in projects such as The Queen and Enduring Love. She’ll next appear in Hugo.

Rapace is likely even less well known to audiences here, though that last name might be a giveaway: he’s Noomi Rapace’s ex-hubby and has worked on the likes of Together. In case you were wondering, there's no word on what roles they'll be playing in Skyfall.

We do know they’re joining a cast that already includes Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Bérénice Marlohe, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw. Skyfall has just started shooting and will be out on October 26 next year.

The casting news was broken over Twitter by @007, the official James Bond account, which also showed off the first official picture sent from the set. (Don’t get too excited – it’s mostly the clapperboard and some sinks). And though we’re wondering why James Bond tweets aren’t mostly either puns used after killing bad guys, or cheesy lines tried on women, we’re glad it exists. Especially if it can counterbalance the impending avalanche of unofficial set photos…

Young M?
She'll probably play M in a flashback, the whole "m's past comes back to haunt her" thing...either that or Moneypenny. More
