A Bond insider revealed that though the role is not quite big but it surely is pivotal for the movie."It's not a major role but it's an extremely important one. It will be a brief on-screen appearance. Everyone is really excited at the prospect of having such a huge star joining the cast. It will be fabulous to see him square up against Bond," said the Insider.
The 67-year-old Godfather star has also appeared in classics such as Scarface and Carlito's Way and will be arriving at Pinewood Studios in April or May. In Quantum of Solace, Bond - played by Daniel Craig - is on the trail of terrorists responsible for the death of his ladylove Vesper Lynd.
