Batista rumored for latest 'Bond' film

Rumors coming out of Hollywood early this week suggest that former WWE Champion Batista may be taking on a new nemesis — the one and only Bond, James Bond.

Unconfirmed reports indicate that The Animal is in negotiations to star as the villain Hinx opposite Daniel Craig’s 007 in the next installment of the legendary franchise. According to casting reports, the producers were looking for a physically imposing male with a unique look and a sports background — a description that fits Batista perfectly.
