As Roma prepare for the first match of the second half of the season, Jose Mourinho’s name is being thrown around the streets of Hollywood.

Most recently, Oscar-winning film director Sam Mendes – known for American Beauty, Revolutionary Road and Skyfall – was asked about a real life figure that would fit the bill for James Bond’s new villain in an upcoming addition to the legendary spy agent saga.

As reported in The Guardian, Mendes indicated Roma manager Jose Mourinho as the man for the job.

“As for a great Bond villain? José Mourinho. You can’t get better than that can you?” said Mendes.
