1. John Cleese To Play Gadget Man

    By David Winter on 2001-04-02

    Annanova has reported that comedian John Cleese is to play James Bond’s new gadget assistant.

    The comedian will take over from the late Desmond Llewellyn, who played Q in 17 Bond films.

    Back on the 8th of January 2000 we reported this news in which Empire Online confirmed that Cleese has signed for a further three films.

    However, this latest report seems to indicate that Cleese’s character may be ‘Q’, as in Quartermaster. That’s how many have reported it.
