Steve Carell wants to play a Bond baddie


Actor Steve Carell is eager to shed his good guy image to play a James Bond villain.

The funnyman is famous for his comedic roles in movies such as "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Date Night" and "Crazy, Stupid, Love," but he wants fans to see him in a new light.

Carell tells Britain's The Sun, "My dream is to be a Bond villain. Everyone wants to be in a Bond film. There's an interesting way that people depict Bond villains; that they're charismatic and almost likeable, almost redeemable and human. Not a caricature or a villain, but a human being who does bad things. I think it's most actors' dream to play a Bond villain."

I am not sure that I could see him as a villian.  I am also not  sure that the Bond franchise would  take a chance on him or give him that chance.  He will have a hard time getting the chance since he has been type cast.  I did see him blow up during an interview once because they asked him to pretend to be someone when he wasn't prepared, so I know he has a nasty side, so maybe he could play a baddie--who knows.

It will be a short film because 007 will kill him in the first 14 minutes.

Every actor wants to spread their wings and try something different. I don't see how Steve Carell can't be given that chance. Maybe not in a Bond movie. Robin Williams has played dramatic roles in both film and on television. So I say, give him a chance. As they say, doing comedy is harder than doing dramas.

Yes, Give Steve a chance at a Bond villain role. He can do it. Reginald Silverfish, who has a relationship with M while trying to corner the Silver market and bankrupting the British economy. :).
