Wow. That title is horrendous. Sorry.
Is this our next James Bond leading lady? Perhaps, according to MI6, and a whole bunch of other places around the net. Apparently, Abbie Cornish, the AFI-winning star of Somersault and Candy (both of which received scant US releases last year), has screen tested for the part. No one knows if her role is of the Eva Green variety (the main Bond Girl) or the Caterina Murina variety (the secondary Bond Girl, usually the villain's woman).
As much as I like Cornish, I gotta agree with Mike from No-Necked Monsters and say that I don't know if she's right for the part. She doesn't seem, and this will sound ridiculously sexist I know, feminine enough. Let's face it, Bond Girls are pretty much of a certain kind of girl, and I'm not entirely sure Cornish is that kind. But, who knows. Maybe they'll make her some exotic Aussie. Oh man, I sorta hope they do that. IT'D BE A DISASTER!
