Adolph Gettler is a supporting antagonist in the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale. He was an agent for Quantum, working with Mr. White to obtain the winnings of James Bond from Casino Royale via Vesper Lynd in Venice.

He is portrayed by Richard Sammel.


Following the death of Le Chiffre at the hands of Mr. White, James Bond decides to retire from MI6 and start a new life with Vesper Lynd after depositing his casino winnings on behalf of the British government. However, he soon learns that the money hasn't been deposited yet, and that Vesper Lynd has betrayed him, as she is delivering the money to Mr. White (as part of the deal she made with him earlier). It also turns out that part of the deal involved killing Le Chiffre, as Mr. White could no longer trust him anymore. To ensure of this, Mr. White contacts Gettler to ensure that the job will be done.

Gettler's death

Gettler is shot through the eye with a nail-gun.

Gettler is first encountered as he meets Vesper Lynd in Venice to receive the money she had stolen from Bond previously. However, Bond chases the two into a building under renovation. A gunfight ensues shortly after, during which the inflatable supports for the building are punctured and the building begins to collapse. Bond makes an attempt to rescue Vesper, making his way up the building and killing Gettler's men as he does so. In a final confrontation between the two, Gettler runs towards Bond, but the spy uses a nail gun to shoot out Gettler's left eye.

Despite Gettler's death, Bond failed to save Vesper (who suddenly drowns to her death) while Mr. White makes a clean getaway with the money, though he would later end up in custody after Bond tracks him down.
