Taubman, 39, is to serve as a spokesman for vulnerable children around the world.

“Every child has the right to grow up healthy and safe,” said Taubman in a Unicef statement issued on Wednesday.

Some of Taubman’s screen roles have been decidedly less benevolent. Taubman played a bad guy in Quantum of Solace, the most recent James Bond film.

The actor’s first Unicef task will be a visit to Rwanda on April 18-23. His mission is to call attention to the plight of orphans there.
