TRADECRAFT: TIMOTHY DALTON SPIES AGAIN!!!
Along with Dalton, another Bond veteran is also joining the cast of The Tourist. Steven Berkoff, who played the villainous General Orlov in Octopussy (and toured with an excellent one-man stage show of Shakespeare's greatest villains), will have a role as well. The two Bond alum join Paul Bettany and Rufus Sewell as well as Depp and Jolie. According to the trade, "The Tourist, penned by Julian Fellowes & Christopher McQuarrie and Jeffrey Nachmanoff, centers on an American tourist visiting Italy to mend a broken heart who pursues a romance with a woman who deliberately crosses his path. The couple's then caught in a whirlwind of intrigue and danger."
