Bond Never Dies Mission 020: Casino Royale

Welcome to Bond Never Dies! A podcast where we revisit all the James Bond films From Sean Connery to  Daniel Craig and here our thoughts about James Bond himself, the mission, villians, women and of course the gadgets. 

After receiving a license to kill, British Secret Service agent James Bond (Daniel Craig) heads to Madagascar, where he uncovers a link to Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen), a man who finances terrorist organizations. Learning that Le Chiffre plans to raise money in a high-stakes poker game, MI6 sends Bond to play against him, gambling that their newest "00" operative will topple the man's organization.


  • Daniel Craig as James Bond: A British MI6 officer, who after being assigned 00 status, is sent on a mission to arrest a bomb-maker in Madagascar, where he stumbles upon Le Chiffre's terrorist cell and is then sent to defeat him in a high-stakes poker game at Casino Royale.
  • Eva Green as Vesper Lynd: An agent for Her Majesty's Treasury assigned to supervise Bond and finance him in a high-stakes poker game
  • Mads Mikkelsen as Le Chiffre: A banker who services many of the world's terrorists, he is a mathematical genius and expert chess player, and uses these skills when playing poker.
  • Judi Dench as M: The head of MI6, although she feels she has promoted Bond too soon and chides him for his rash actions, she acts as an important maternal figure in his life. Dench was the only cast member carried through from the Pierce Brosnan films.
  • Giancarlo Giannini as René Mathis: Bond's contact in Montenegro
  • Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter: A CIA operative, he is participating in the poker tournament while assisting Bond. This is the first Eon-produced Bond film in which Leiter is played by a black actor. (The only other black actor to portray Leiter was Bernie Casey in Never Say Never Again, which was not produced by Eon.)
