Skyfall, Bond & Q

Check out this new clip from "Skyfall," in which Bond meets quartermaster Q (Ben Whishaw) for the first time. Looking like a Brit hipster barely old enough to have a college degree, this is the Q for a new generation. But still, he tells Bond calmly: "I can do more damage on my laptop, sitting in my pajamas, before my first cup of Earl Grey than you can do a year in the field."

Whishaw is an exciting new Brit talent who made his name as "Hamlet": he not only starred in Jane Campion's undervalued "Bright Star" and Julie Taymor's "The Tempest" (as an unforgettable Ariel) but played Bob Dylan in "I'm Not There" and a brilliant TV reporter in the must-see BBC series "The Hour." A second season is in the works.

"Skyfall" releases November 9. So far it's getting rave reviews.
