As with Skyfall, there appears to be no part in Bond 24 for Bond’s brother from Langley.
In a new interview with /Film the two time Felix Leiter, Jeffrey Wright, confirmed he will be tied up with the Hunger Games franchise and has not been asked back for Sam Mendes’ Bond 24.
Says the actor:
Felix is going to be playing Beetee next fall or whenever it comes out.
This obviously does not preclude a recast by the 007 producer — and Mendes may want oversight over the casting of his Felix — but Wright still remains the obvious choice for the role if they wanted to re-introduce Leiter.
