Official ‘Casino Royale’ Teaser Poster
The official Casino Royale website blog has been updated by ‘Yarborough.’ Coverage this time centers on the main villain of the film: Le Chiffre, portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen.
The report tells how Le Chiffre will be a different kind of the villain in the James Bond film legacy. Mikkelsen says of the role: ‘He’s not the mad scientist who’s trying to take over the world but he’s trying to make as much money as possible, cheating everybody he can, which of course gives him a lot of enemies but he is a little more human than you probably normally would see in a Bond villain. He’s a man who has got a lot of greed, he just wants money in an easy way and that’s going to be his Achilles Heel in the end.’
