Oh man. This is starting to sound absolutely effing AMAZING!
And to think that this movie almost didn't happen!
There has been a lot of casting buzz surrounding Sam Mendes' upcoming James Bond sequel, but up until now, the only two confirmed actors were Judi Dench and Daniel Craig.
However, sources close to the production have not only revealed that potential Bond girl Naomie Harris will actually be portraying the classic role of Moneypenny, assistant to Dench's M, and that BOTH Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes, whose involvement have been rumored since day one, are confirmed as part of the cast!
Apparently, Bardem will portray the central baddie, while Fiennes' character is said to be "darkly complex!"
We've already get shivers thinking about them in these roles! Obviously, the latter has played Voldemort for so many years that we're thrilled he's not going the purely evil route, and the former chilled us to the bone in No Country For Old Men, so he'll be PERFECT!
So exciting! Hopefully this will wipe the sour taste out of our mouth that we got from Quantum of Solace!
What do U think?? Are U looking forward to Bond 23?
