Meet Your New Bond Girl

Bérénice Marlohe.

Though Eva Green as Vesper Lynd will always rule our hearts, it has been six years since Casino Royale, and we suppose James Bond is entitled to move on. (Yes, technically he already did just that in Quantum of Solace, but we're trying not to dwell on that installment.) Twitch reports that for the forthcoming James Bond film, which already has a great amount of star power in Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, and Ralph Fiennes, director Sam Mendes has chosen to go with virtually unknown French actress Bérénice Marlohe to play the Bond Girl. How her character crosses paths with Craig is still a mystery, and at this point, all we know about Marlohe is that she'll soon belong to an exclusive club of women that includes Olga Kurylenko, Ivana Miličevic, and Izabella Scorupco: modern-day Bond girls whose names are frightfully easy to misspell.
