Ben Whishaw and Helen McCrory Join JAMES BOND 23; Berenice Marlohe Confirmed to Play Bond Girl

     October 7, 2011


Casting on the next James Bond film continues to fill in.  The Daily Mail reports that Ben Whishaw (The Tempest) and Helen McCrory (who plays Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter films) have signed on to the flick, although there are currently no details on their roles.  Furthermore, The Daily Mail has confirmed an earlier report that French actress Berenice Marlohe will play the new Bond girl in the upcoming untitled sequel.  No details are known about her character beyond “Pretty Lady that 007 will be schtupping at some point.”

Almost everything on the plot is being kept tight under wraps, but that’s usually the case with a Bond film this far out.  Daniel Craig will return to play James Bond and Judi Dench is back as “M”.  Javier Bardem is on board to play the villain, Naomie Harris is Miss Moneypenny, and the Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye says “Ralph Fiennes will play a role so top secret, I swallowed a pill to make me forget what I was told.”  The 23rd James Bond film (possibly entitled Skyfall) opens November 9, 2012.

    I’d like to see Kurt Angle and Gary Daniels as villains in this film. There would be amazing fight scenes between each of them with Daniel Craig.

    I am waiting for a good hand-to-hand fight for Bond, not those brief fights he kept getting. There could be a fight sequence where Kurt Angle overhead belly to belly suplexes Daniel Craig through a glass wall and later executes the Angle Slam on him as well but Daniel Craig manages to beat him after a long, hard fight.

      Are you 10 years old or just f’d in the head?

        I’m gonna go with the latter…he posts this same bit (and the thing about wanting American locations) not just on this site whenever there’s a new bit of news about Bond, but just about every other movie news site that has a forum. My guess is autism.

    I hope they film in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Las Vegas and include several American actors.

    So…Ralph Fiennes = Blofeld?

    • Mike

      Could be a good guess. I’m down with Ralph Fiennes playing anybody, though. Especially in a Bond film.

  • kemo

    I still want Christophe Waltz as Blofeld or any Formidable Villian He would be the perfect Bond Nemesis

  • Chris

    Ever since I first saw Michael Shannon I can’t help but see him as a great candidate to play Jaws.

  • ozzie

    maybe ralph is playing Q

    Naomie Harris is a little too exotic looking to be Moneypenny. I would cast someone a little more “girl-next-door” in the role. Harris would make a great Bond girl though.

      Agreed, It has nothing to do with race. She just doesn’t strike me as the uncorruptable innocent type.

    Berenice Marlohe looks A LOT like Olga Kurylenko. In the picture, I thought it was her.
