I think he looks more like a Felix Leitner character, one of the good guys who helps Bond out but ultimately is looking at an assassination in a lift or taxi for his troubles...leaving Jim with only one thing to consider - revenge and lots of it.
Looks like granddad. Talks like Blofeld:
o Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.
o I come in peace. I didnât bring artillery. But Iâm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, Iâll kill you all.
