Playbook Spots Blitzer in Skyfall Two Weeks Tardy

This morning’s Politico Playbook by Mike Allen reported that they spotted CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer delivering the news in Skyfall, the new James Bond flick. But the news isn’t new — it’s actually more than two weeks old.

The Washington Examiner gave the news a mention on Nov. 8. HuffPost reported the news on Nov. 9 as did Mediaite. But the most interesting part? Even Politico’s own Dylan Byers broke the news of Blitzer’s cameo on Nov. 9. But maybe those two departments don’t cross paths much.

From this morning’s Playbook:

SPOTTED, in “Skyfall“: Wolf Blitzer, delivering a “Breaking News” update seen by a bleary Bond at a bar in an exotic location, reporting a possible cyberterror attack on London headquarters of MI6, the British Secret Service.
