Missing Bond actor Paul Bhattacharjee found dead



Get your lowdown on what's going on in the world of Hollywood, right here!

British Indian actor Paul Bhattacharjee, who played the role of a doctor in James Bond film Casino Royale, has been found dead at Splash Point cliffs in Seaford, East Sussex, UK.

Bhattacharjee, 53, was last seen leaving the Royal Court 
theatre in London's Sloane Square on July 10, reported BBC online.

Police said his death was not being treated as suspicious.

The actor, from Redbridge, was said to be in good spirits 
when he was last seen but after sending a text message to his girlfriend at around 9pm that night, no-one heard from him and an appeal was launched.

The Metropolitan police was contacted on Wednesday morning 
by Sussex Police who said a body matching his description had been found last week.

The actor had starred in films like The Best Exotic 
Marigold Hotel, White Teeth and Dirty Pretty Things.

Brad Pitt’s body double just earned 4.44 pounds per hour for his part in Zombie thriller World War Z while his Hollywood counterpart was paid 9 million pounds for his stint in the movie.

The 49-year-old Hollywood heartthrob stayed in a five-star private estate and was flown to worldwide premieres by private jet.

However, David Paterson, for his debut movie, got holed up in a small house in Glasgow, and wasn’t even invited to any glitzy premieres.

Paterson’s 18-hour stint got him 80 pounds, which works out to over four pounds-an-hour, the Mirror reported.

He started filming at 6 am and was told not to speak with Pitt.
