With the November 15 news that James Bond producers Danjaq and MGM have acquired all 007 rights owned by late "Thunderball" co-creator Kevin McClory, the question immediately began buzzing: Will arch-villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld (introduced in Ian Fleming's "Thunderball" novel and in the movie "You Only Live Twice" after being teased as the mysterious Number One in "From Russia with Love" and "Thunderball") make his way into the upcoming "Bond 24"? 

And, beyond that, who would make the perfect Blofeld? Take our poll, below.

The traditional image of Blofeld is with bald head, Nehru jacket and a white cat (as played by Donald Pleasence, Telly Savalas and Charles Gray). Then there was Max von Sydow (with hair but without the Nehru jacket) in the unofficial "Thunderball" remake "Never Say Never Again." Of course, Mike Myers parodied the character with his Dr. Evil in the "Austin Powers" franchise. Presumably a new Blofeld would be updated and would need to be played by a prestigious actor to rival Javier Bardem's Silva of "Skyfall."
