This may offend some of you, but I’ve sat here, I’ve tried, but I can’t see the big deal about Freida Pinto. Since Slumdog Millionaire, she’s become some kind of break out star praised the world over for her beauty. I really hope the novelty of a passably attractive Indian chick wears off soon, because Hollywood is seriously considering this chick to play a Bond girl. The Sun reports:
Executive producer BARBARA BROCCOLI is eager for her to join the cast — after earmarking Slumdog director DANNY BOYLE for the top job. A source said: “Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting Quantum of Solace. She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent. But she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on DANIEL CRAIG’s arm. Danny Boyle is favourite to take the helm of the next movie, which would increase Freida’s chances of a starring role.”
Oh, I’ve heard rumors about this one! It should be good. Not to give anything away, but reportedly James Bond finds himself involved in a tangled plot of complicated billing and long hold times with the shadowy multi-national organization known as D.E.L.L. Can he find his service tag before it’s too late?!
