Rami Malek is everywhere at the moment, deservedly so. Fresh from his Oscar-winning role as Freddie Murcury in Bohemian Rhapsody, the next role is always a tricky one for those who win the prestigious award.

The film industry are keeping an eye on his next move, and Deadline is now reporting that Malek is in talks to become the next James Bond villain. This is pure perfection in casting, if we do say so ourselves.

If you've seen him in Mr. Robot, his stoic expressions and ability to embody mysteriousness is ideal for a walled-off and deceptive villain. Oh, and did we mention the iconic Lupita Nyong’o is might be courted as Bond 25's female lead?

Malek is reportedly closing the deal to act opposite Daniel Craig in Craig's last run as the renowned MI5 agent. Variety was first to mention Malek’s talks, with Cary Fukunaga directing the flick.

Nyong’o won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2013 for 12 Years A Slave, and has played her role in blockbusters like the unbelievable Best Picture nominated Black Panther. She's also starring in Jordan Peele's new genre film Us.

The 007 bad-guy role is always an incredible actor, do we remember Javier Bardem's turn? *Shivers* That man did too good a job of acting evil, it's convincing AF. We're dying to see what Malek will do with the role.

Christoph Waltz also played a Bond nemesis, with both Waltz and Bardem having their own Oscar-winning performances before transforming into treacherous deceptives.

Also joining Bond 25 alongside Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q is the talented actor Billy Magnussen.

The hyper-charming American is best known for his roles in Velvet Buzzsaw, Game Night and a hugely unique turn in Maniac alongside Emma Stone and Jonah Hill.

He's playing a CIA agent, and the eye candy is strong with this one.

He’s going to play a CIA agent, which essentially means he’ll be sent in to float James Bond when he inevitably runs out of money and pick up the pieces after he runs amok in a glamorous foreign location. 

Magnussen and Malek in the same film might just send us over the edge; both talented and gorgeous humans. Wow, we can't WAIT for Bond 25 now, but a woman needs to be given the MI5 badge.

Or the role of a villain, seriously. Those men get all the juicy roles.

Rami Malek is a treasure who must be protected at ALL COSTS.

The 37-year-old won the prestigious Best Actor gong at the 91st Academy Awards last night, his first win and nomination, so his nerves are understandable.

The adorable, immensely talented actor was kissing his co-star girlfriend Lucy Boynton the entire night, and we don't blame him. It was basically Wezz. He declared his love for her in his speech, and pretty much everyone melted.

Malek and Boynton play Freddie Mercury and Mary Austin in Bohemian Rhapsody, which was the biggest winner of the night but failed to win Best Picture, and the world has fallen in love with them.

On stage, Rami professed his love for the 25-year-old English actress before falling off afterwards and had to be treated by paramedics, which will 100 percent make a great story to tell the grandkids.

He said, "Lucy Boynton, you are the heart of this film, you are beyond immensely talented, you have captured my heart. Thank you so much." AW. He also opened up about his Egyptian heritage;

Malek is apparently moving to London to be around his love, after totally falling for her. The poor lad even fell off the stage with the shock of his award, with People reporting that Malek was moved to a private area backstage.

"Paramedics appeared to rush to the actor's aide, who was photographed seated in the front row with his Oscars statuette still in hand. Malek was then moved to a private area backstage, where he received further treatment for possible injuries."

Malek was unable to pose with Mahershala Ali, Regina King and Olivia Colman, who also won big at the Academy Awards in the Dolby theatre. He was featured in a photo with them after the ceremony however.

Bohemian Rhapsody was the biggest winner of the night, taking home the awards for Best Actor, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Film Editing.

Spike Lee, director of BlacKkKlansman, was NOT happy when Green Book took home Best Picture, which has been controversially labelled a "white saviour" movie.

Queen featuring Adam Lambert opened up the Oscars instead of an opening monologue, as the ceremony went hostless without Kevin Hart.
