Rami Malek is on the verge of suiting up for Bond 25. Fresh off his Oscar win for Bohemian Rhapsody, the actor is reportedly in the final stages of sealing the deal to play the villain opposite Daniel Craig.

According to sources, Malek’s team was able to successfully negotiate his shooting schedules for both the film and the final season of Mr. Robot. Though no further details about his character has been released, his antagonist role has been rumored to be a blind villain.
