Travolta ‘Would Love’ to Play a Bond Villain

There’s a long list of actors who want to play James Bond, and there’s surely an equally long list of those who hope to play a James Bond villain. In fact, one high-profile name has added his name to the latter: John Travolta.

The Pulp Fiction star sat down with The Telegraph for an in-depth interview about his career and personal life. The conversation covered Travolta’s interest in playing bad guys, and the actor said he won’t “close the chapter on playing villains” until he’s squared off against 007.

“I would love that,” he said. “They’re going a different way with their villain in this next film but I’ve spoken to [Bond producer] Barbara Broccoli about it and she loves the idea, so that would be great.”

It doesn’t sound like anything is imminent, but clearly, his interest is there, and he’s had talks with the right people. So, what do you think: would you buy Travolta as a Bond villain?

    Yeah, definitely. He was good as one in Broken Arrow.

    Yeaah!! I think Travolta would be great Bond Villain. He has done many villain roles and i think he can deliver.

    He was good in Broken Arrow, Swordfish and The Punisher. Broken Arrow was probably his best villain. I think his Swordfish villain is just as good as his Broken Arrow character – although Swordfish was kind of over the top overall. Those are the three bad guys I’ve seen him play. It would be interesting to see what kind of Bond villain he would play.

    I read this at the weekend. He comes across as a down to earth nice guy and I think John Travolta would make an awesome Bond villain. Along with Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy.

    Tom Hardy is the next Bond when D.Graig stops being Bond.

    I am really surprised that all these comments (as of this posting) are positive.
