Benedict Cumberbatch to play Bond villain?

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is believed to be in the running to play the next James Bond villain.

Cumberbatch is considered 'perfect Bond villain material' for the as-yet-untitled 24th James Bond movie, according to The Express.

'Work on the next film will begin next year and the plan is for Benedict to be on board,' an insider reportedly told the paper.

'He grew up watching Bond, so it would be a childhood ambition fulfilled,' continued the source.

'Playing a Bond villain is one of the plum roles in film history and he'd jump at the chance.'
