With the new Bond movie back on track and set to be released November 2012, chatter has already begun as to who the next Bond girl will be. Several names have topped the list of supposed candidates, including Kim Kardashian, Christina Hendricks of Mad Men, model Brooklyn Decker, Sofia Vergara of Modern Family, and even singer Katy Perry.
While none of these are confirmed yet, Kim Kardashian recently said, “I would love to be in a Bond film — a Bond Girl…that would be the ultimate.” Even Jennifer Aniston has thrown her hat into the ring, saying she has always dreamed of being Bond’s next love interest.
The beautiful and dangerous roll is coveted by many, but when it comes down to it, killer looks aren’t all that is required. Let’s hope director Sam Mendes picks someone with some acting chops, too. Who would you like to see as the next Mrs. 007?
