Billionaire British media mogul portrayed by Jonathan Pryce in Tomorrow Never Dies. Combining the entrepreneurial qualities of early Rupert Murdoch and Ted Turner with the terror tactics of your average Nazi megalomaniac, the writers came up with this nefarious character, who probably skipped journalism school and an internship at the London Times. Intent on scooping the competition at all costs, Carver has just launched Carver Media Group Network (CMGN), an international cable network that trades on the worst kind of tabloid journalism. Now he plans to initiate World War III, pitting Britain against China, just so he can get the exclusive news footage for his network of television stations, newspapers, and magazines.
Fortunately, James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) is around to stop the presses.
