Hey, here's a trivia item for you: who was the youngest actor to ever play a James Bond villian? Times up - it was Benicio Del Toro, who at the age of 21 terrorized Timothy Dalton in Licence to Kill. James Mottram's profile of the Oscar winner in The Independent is one of those celebrity profiles that draws a tenuous line between an actor's rough-ass childhood (which, in this case, was middle-class but still somewhat dysfunctional), and his predilection for bad-ass roles. Which is maybe fitting, for a Stella Adler trained thespian who admits that attention from fans "just bothers me when I'm intoxicated."
