James Bond’s New Babe is Berenice Marlohe

Berenice Marlohe in Bond 23

The newest Bond girl for the next film in the Bond franchise, Bond 23,  has been chosen; it’s Berenice Marlohe, a French actress whose entire film resume up to now seems to be in French films.

She joins Daniel Craig playing original bad-boy rake James Bond, of course, as well as Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench, and Ben Whishaw. Sam Mendes (Revolutionary Road, American Beauty) is directing.

Marlohe is certainly gorgeous enough to fill the shoes previously occupied by, among others, Ursula Andress, Eva Green, Halle Berry, Jill St. John, Michelle Yeoh, and Diana Rigg. And Daniel Craig—well,it’s no secret how much we admire his brand of bad-assery. Paired against baddies played by Bardem and Fiennes? We can not wait until November 2012.

OOh...thanks for this. I chat a lot over at the Dedicated to Daniel fan board and I'm sure they'll be all aflutter over the news. What a pretty woman, and French, ooh la la.

Praying for TONS of gratuitous sex scenes in Bond 23. I feel like I got cheated in QofS!

@Annabel, I hear you in terms of QofS! I liked the scene with the redhead, of course, but other than that there wasn't much going on, was there? And I like the idea of a Dedicated to Daniel fan board. I certainly appreciate the man in ohso many ways!
