Bond 24: 10 Actors Who Would Make Awesome Villains
10. Jean Dujardin
Who He Would Play: French star Dujardin has proven in both The Artist and The Wolf of Wall Street that he makes for an exotic, smooth operator, and therefore he'd fit the bill perfectly as a Bond villain. It's no secret that international playboy-type actors are great at playing Bond baddies, and as a billionaire investor in some non-descript shady businesses, he could very much be a traditional Bond villain while also having enough edge to ramp up the intensity when things don't quite go his way. Likelihood Of It Happening: 6/10. It's surprising that Dujardin didn't explode into Hollywood after the success of The Artist, and other than Scorsese's latest and the upcoming The Monuments Men, he's flown pretty low on the radar over the last two years. Had he been a more prominent presence on the circuit, this would be a greater possibility, but he's still one to think about, as it's not exactly like most people knew who Mathieu Amalric was when he played the villain in Quantum of Solace (as well as that went).
