For decades we knew only Desmond Llewelyn as the doting but genius master of Gadgetry, Q.  Q hooked Bond up with everything from exploding pens to jetpacks, and finally passed the torch over to John Cleese in The World is Not Enough (1999).  Since 2002’s Die Another Day we haven’t seen the gadgeteer at all.  When Daniel Craig filled 007’s suit his outings were surprisingly free of gadgets and it was assumed they’d fallen onto the wayside in preference of “Oooh Gritty Grim Dark Grim Grim  Grr!”   Okay, so maybe I’m biased towards my generation’s Bond.

Either way, here’s your New Q!  the youngest yet at 31.  Whishaw has even worked with Craig before in Layer Cake (2004).  Skyfall is due for release in Oct/Nov 2012
