Cornish. Abbie Cornish.

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!

Abbie Cornish is a fox.

She is quite a dish, I agree. Hence the reason she's being considered I guess.

Eva Green was quite unconventional for a Bond girl...Abbie Cornish seems like another unusual choice that might really work...As long as i get another 2+hours of Daniel Craig's HOTBOND,they can cast Bea Arthur...

Well, apparently Craig has reversed his "give me a gay bond man" schtick and said he didn't wanna even go shirtless in the next one because he thought there wasn't enough attention paid to his acting, and it was all paid to his pecs and arms and legs and tiny blue swimshorts... *dreams*
