I’m a little bit mixed when it comes to recent Bond girls. Casino Royale started strong with Eva Green, then they went Olga Kurylenko in whatever that next movie was supposed to be, and then a few others in Skyfall. Now, rumors are emerging that Blake Lively and Amber Heard are trying to lock in a role in the next film. From Celebitchy:
Uh-oh, the world’s favorite spy has one tough decision to make! Blake Lively and Amber Heard are vying fot the coveted role of James Bond’s leading Lady in the next 007 film, which is shooting this November and due out a year later. The part calls for a gorgeous Scandanavian woman who is a “good person with a trouble past.” This is a huge franchise, so anyone asked to audition jumps at the chance,” says a source who reveals that producer Barbara Broccoli thinks Blake and Amber would both be ideal — but only one of them can land the part! “There’s bound to be a showdown. They would certainly fight for it!” They wouldn’t be worthy of Bond Girl status if they didn’t!
A “good person with a troubled past.” Stay away from her Bond. That is a red flag. I can imagine Bond and one of them getting hot and heavy and then she starts talking about how much she hates her parents. Not even Bond can get out of that nightmare.
