Confession: I am wildly obsessed with James Bond movies. I know just about every word to Goldfinger and once purposely spilled a glass of wine on Daniel Craig at a party just so I could pat him with a napkin. So imagine my delight to hear that Blake Lively may be going from It Girl to Bond Girl!
One of my minions at Star magazine stole a peek at the new untitled Bond script–the flick films this November, out a year later–and saw that Blake is being considered for the role of “Bond Girl #2,” according to the script. The role is described as a “Scandinavian woman who has a good heart but troubled past.” So basically the same as every other Bond girl before her, no? Although some Bond babes fizzled, like Denise Richards in The World is Not Enough (SHUDDER) and that Russian girl who never took off her cardigan in GoldenEye, I’m sure B would make a stellar leading lady for 007.
That is–if she gets the part. I hear that the critically overrated Amber Heard is also up for the role and that producers can’t quite decide between them. Personally I find Amber so beyond whateverish, especially when compared with Blake, that I can’t imagine her opposite James Bond, can you?
Tell me your casting ideas–will B trump Amber in the end or should a totally different star play the spy’s star-crossed lover?
