TOMORROW NEVER DIES
Carver is a worldwide media baron, the head of the Carver Media Group, who will
stop at nothing to get a good story. Realising the media potential of global
conflict, Carver (played by Jonathan Pryce) manipulates the Chinese and British
governments into a military standoff as the vehicle to launch his new 24hr
satellite news channel. Tomorrow Never Dies is named after the Tomorrow
newspaper, which Carver uses to report his underhanded operations to the world.
"There's no news like bad news."
trick shot assassin, Dr. Kaufman (played by Vincent Schiavelli), having already
killed Carver's wife, is given the seemingly simple task of assassinating Bond
and making it look like 007 was responsible for the death of Paris. Not quite as
easy as it appears.
Kaufman: I'm just a professional doing a job.
Bond: So am I.
Carver's right hand man, Mr. Stamper (played by Götz Otto), aims to become the
ultimate in henchmen under the careful tutelage of Dr. Kaufman. Standing
at over 6ft in height and carrying a very large gun, in Tomorrow Never Dies, Mr.
Stamper callously murders the survivors of a ship wreck in an attempt to get
good footage for the Carver Media Network.
"I owe you an unpleasant death, Mr. Bond."
