Lead Bond 22 Babe to be Muy Caliente

We may not yet know the title of the next James Bond movie, and we may not know what the story is about, but we now at least have an idea of who the next Bond Babe will be… even if her character might not have a name yet.

According to casting notices sent out this morning, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are looking for a Latina actress in her late twenties, preferably with South American roots. Despite their plea that prospective talent not be worried about fitting the traditional Bond Girl look, since this is the “new” Bond series, she must be quite beautiful, able to handle what promises to be a physically demanding role, fluent in English and, last but most certainly not least, a great actress.

The next Bond film will begin filming in the United Kingdom and across Europe and South America under the direction of Marc Foster this coming January, with a six month production anticipated.
