You probably read that headline and were like, "What, he’s gonna stab someone?"

That may be, but the story is that the Mexican actor (Joaquin Cosio) playing Bond bad guy General Medrano is blabbing about the plot to a Mexican newspaper.

"I’m General Medrano, Bond’s enemy in Latin America, but there are other enemies waiting in Europe for Bond." [Cinematical]

He later reveals that Giancarlo Giannini and Judi Dench will return for the next bond.  His IMDB page further reveals that he played Vicente in the TV series "Sexo y otros secretos".  Based on my knowledge of Mexican television, Vicente has fake freckles and often licks a giant lollipop while looking directly at the camera and delivering lines that I don’t understand, but based on the reaction of the studio audience, are really funny.  

Related news stories: "Judi Dench" is cockney rhyming slang for "stench".  Also, I once watched the Mexican version of America’s Funniest Home Videos, and one of the videos was a dog falling asleep.
