"Bond, James Bond - No Really, I'm Bond"

Yahoo! Top Stories - Bond Hot for Eva, Mads About Baddie

Well, they finally have all the characters in place for the next Bond film - Casino Royale. They actually started filming before they had the Bond girl and the bad guy cast, but that's been done now. I've had the same response to each of the casting reveals - "Who?" What does it say about a 100 million dollar Bond movie when the biggest (or best known) "name" of the movie is Judi Dench?!

Actually, it might work out for the best. Not having seen the actors in much else, you can just enjoy their performance in that role without any preconceived ideas. (some unknowns would have worked way better than Denise Richards or Halle Berry). It worked well in Goldeneye (with the exception of the well known Brosnan), and maybe that will apply here. Goldeneye was always one of my favorites, and the same director is back for Casino Royale, so there is hope this will be done well...

Huh. Didn't know Casino Royale was an actual Ian Fleming book. I have seen the original Casino Royale with David Niven, Deborah Kerr, etc. and knew it was a spoof of the James Bond flicks. Didn't know it was an actual book in the series.

Hello there Eagle. I tried to get to the video download you told me about, but as I'm using a school computer, it unfortunately didn't work. Thanks for letting me know about it anyway. I appreciate it!
Honestly, if you ever have any way of contacting Wideman, please do tell him! And if you can somehow get me contact info, like an email or something, I would be forever eternally grateful.
