Jackson’s role is listed as ‘Mr. Slate’ and while the IMDb isn’t always the most reliable site for Bond news, fans will also want to take note of the following message posted on Jackson’s MySpace blog on 19 December:
‘I finalized contracts a few days ago to play the role of Mr. Slate in the new, as yet untitled, Bond film. Details are a little sketchy at this point, but I do have a big fight with 007… more to follow.’
It seems like ‘Mr. Slate’ will be another new addition to the villains of Quantum of Solace, which already include Dominic Greene (played by Mathieu Amalric), General Medrano (Joaquín Cosio), Mr. White (Jesper Christensen) and the as-yet-unnamed character to be played by Anatole Taubman.
