Sam Mendes, director of Specter and Skyfall, approached Portuguese football manager Jose Mourinho to play the villain from James Bond.


How was everything?

Often the villain-pantomime on the sidelines of the Portuguese manager inclines to make the great antagonist of James Bond, the legendary director Sam Mendes. Many talented actors have previously turned their hand to the role, such as Donald Pleasence, Rami Malek, and Sam suggested that Jose Mourinho might join the list.


What did Mendes say about Jose Mourinho?

Asked who would make the great James Bond villain, legendary director Sam Mendes replied: “Jose Mourinho. Can’t you be better than you can be?


A little about the topic
