Top 10 Ideal Bond Girls

By  Justin Carreiro     11:03 PM    Labels:,,, 
I've been a huge James Bond fan ever since I was a little kid. My first movie was "GoldenEye" starring Pierce Brosnan and I've seen every movie since then. With the news that Bond 23 has just restarted back into pre-production with Sam Mendez directing and Daniel Craig returning to portray 007, the question has surfaced which female will land the role as the infamous Bond Girl who will play opposite Craig? 

Rumors has circulated that Rachel Weitz is the top contender for the lead Bond Girl but they're just rumors. I've thought long and hard about who I would love to see as a future Bond Girl in any role. Roles are lead girl who fight alongside Bond, supporting girl who provides as an aid and love interest for Bond and villain. Here is my Top 10 list of who I think should be a (if not the next) Bond Girl:

1. Katie Cassidy
Most memorable from: Melrose Place (2010), A Nightmare on Elm Street, Gossip Girl, and Supernatural.

She is someone who I've continued to be impressed with by her work. She is more of the sophisticated type who I think could play the villain role perfectly and the lead Bond Girl. Her roles in Gossip Girl and Melrose Place show that can pull off the devious and manipulative fashion of a villainness. However, her portrayal of a rough-and-tough demon in Supernatural shows that shes down to fight alongside Bond.

2. Mila Kunis
Most memorable from: That 70s show, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Black Swan.

For the longest time I would never have considered Mila as a  the next Bond Girl. I find her to be a little too commercial and girly compared to sophisticated. However, after her performance in Black Swan, she could pull off any performance and depth you needed to have. For me, I think she would be perfect either in the lead role or as a supporting character. People will definitely be drawn in by her; it's something in her eyes...says "there's something mysterious about my character and makes you underestimate me."

3. Olivia Wilde
Most memorable from: Tron Legacy, House M.D., and The O.C.

Olivia Wilde was one of the top rumors around Hollywood to be the next Bond girl. I considered this over and came to the conclusion that she would be perfect. She's a tough girl who could take anything on especially with the rough and harsh schedule of making a Bond film. She's definitely a lead Bond Girl who would be opposite Bond in the next film. Hopefully the rumors are true and she decides to do the film.

4. Freida Pinto
Most memorable from: Slumdog Millionaire

Similar to the reports about Olivia Wilde, Freida was the hot rumor going around Hollywood for being the next Bond Girl. Even though she has countlessly denied all the rumors and has publicly announced that she was not going to star in the next film. I don't know why she turned down the film because I think she would be amazing as the lead Bond Girl. She has that ability to charm the audiences and composure about herself. Well hopefully she reconsiders one of these days and decides to do a Bond film in the future.

5. Zoe Saldana
Most memorable from: Star Trek and Avatar

Zoe Saldana has proven that she is a versatile actress. I'm not entirely familiar with all of her work since I'm not a Star Trek fan. However, from the performances I have seen of her, I think she could pull off any of the three types of Bond Girls. She has that mischievous smile to her to be evil, the beauty to pull off the supporting love interest, and the dynamic acting ability to be the lead Bond Girl. It all depends on the role that is available and if she wants to play the part.

6. Evangeline Lilly
Most memorable from: LOST

Evangeline could pull off a lead role. She's played the lead role on LOST for the past six years through all that craziness and beautiful weather in Hawaii. I think that doing a Bond film will feel like nothing to her and we can see how far her acting ability could take her from the small screen to the silver screen as a Bond Girl. She's another one who I would need to see more of her work to accurately determine how well she could perform in this type of action movie.

7. Emily Blunt
Most memorable from: The Devil Wears Prada

She is the only actress on the list who I think would be the absolute ideal actress to be a Bond villain. She has the cold ability to be detached and evil, the accent to give the extra touch, and she's just amazing. I think her performance could be reminiscent to that of Miranda Frost in Die Another Day. I hope she would choose to play a part in the future. To be a Bond villain, you need to be devious and sexy but not overt.

8. Clemence Posey
Most memorable from: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Gossip Girl

We haven't had a French-speaking Bond Girl in the longest time and I think Clemence would be the perfect one to fill the role. I think she could pull of a villain role and the lead role is possible but right now, I'm leaning towards a supporting feature. I would just need to see her in more pieces of work before I could actually judge. However, from what I've seen, she definitely has the look and feel to be a great addition to the long list of Bond Girls.

9. Missy Peregrym
Most memorable from: Heroes, Stick It, and Reaper.

She's the tomboy with the perfect mix of breath-taking beauty. I think she could play the lead role of Bond Girl in the sense of American/Canadian agent for the CIA or FBI. I think her character would be the type who wouldn't take any of Bond's cavalier attitude and try to out due everything he did. She may be a bit too commercial for the role of Bond Girl but anythings a possible and I would love to see her try the role out.

10. Jordana Brewster
Most memorable from: The Fast and the Furious, The Faculty, D.E.B.S.

Jordana Brewster has almost become synonymous with The Fast and the Furious movies. You haven't really seen her much in other projects and ventures so a Bond role might be a great role for her. We could see her range in maybe a villain role to counteract Bond. She definitely could draw Bond in and destroy him with not only her looks but her sly personality.

I know that there are probably more people who I've thought would be good Bond Girls. We'll just have to wait and see who becomes the new Bond Girl for Bond 23. Maybe one of my choices will be chosen but until then, it's great to speculate and pick your favourites.
