Casting call for Bond 24 henchman

007 podcasters James Bond Radio appear to have achieved quite a scoop with their announcement that they had received word direct from the casting agency working on Bond 24 that they are now looking to fill the henchman role.


The henchman, named Hinx, is described as being in the tradition of Oddjob and Jaws and a physically fit male between the ages of 30 and 45. He is over 6′ 2″ and will undertake stunt training for a number of fights with 007 as well as drive.

The story has been repeated on MI6, although it is not known whether they sourced the story from James Bond Radio or independently. However, it does appear to be highly likely this story is absolutely true.
