Appearances: Mads Mikkelsen played the sinister banker in the 2006 version of "Casino Royale." Honcho or henchman? While seemingly master of his domain through most of "Casino Royale's" running time, he's later shown to be quite expendable by agents of Quantum, the even more sinister criminal organization seen in the next film, "Quantum of Solace." Dastardly distinction: Though Le Chiffe is, at the end of the day, little more than a poker-playing banker, his tears of blood are creepy, and his method of torture is direct (not the usual roundabout stuff Bond is subjected to) and made millions of men wince.
