There is a long lasting tradition of German actors as villains in James Bond films. From “Goldfinger” Gert Fröbe, Richard Kiel as “Jaws” to Christoph Waltz as Franz Oberhauser in “Spectre”, the latest in the series of Bond films. Beside Waltz, there is another German actor in “Spectre”, Detlef Bothe from Munich. Bothe is a renowned actor, scripter, producer, camera man and director, but in “Spectre” he is just one of the killers who don’t get a line in the film. Nevertheless, he seems to be a pretty self-confident bloke.
If Daniel Craig would withdraw from the series, the 50-year-old Detlef Bothe told today’s “Welt am Sonntag” that he would suggest himself to be the next James Bond.
