Eva Green has been signed on to play the next Bond girl opposite Daniel Craig, in the remake of the classic Casino Royale. The woman lands the role after a string of high profile exits, the latest by super-glam Charlize Theron. Angelina Jolie was also in talks for playing Vesper Lynd at one time.
Haven't seen any of Eva's films, so can't really comment on her histrionic abilities. She debuted in Bernardo Bertolucci's The Dreamers. Here's wishing her all the best!
That said, I shall now crawl to my subterranean grotto to shed a tear for cinema's great loss. Imagine Charlize in the role and you'd know why.
No-one, and I mean no-one, evokes the chutzpah, the glitz and the finesse of the Bond girl better. Not even Angelina, no.
