Colman Domingo, known for his role in "Fear the Walking Dead," has expressed his interest in playing a villain in the James Bond franchise. In an interview with Variety, Domingo stated that he is not interested in repeating what he has done before and wants to work with director Yorgos Lanthimos or be a Bond villain. While it may seem surprising for an actor to aspire to play a villain rather than the iconic spy himself, it aligns with Domingo's career trajectory.
Unlike Bond actors who are often relative newcomers, many renowned actors have portrayed James Bond villains. Domingo has experience playing villainous or complex characters in previous projects, such as "Fear the Walking Dead" and "Candyman." With his recent Academy Award nomination and diverse acting background, Domingo could potentially create a memorable villain alongside the next Bond actor.
