Lea Seydoux is Rumored as Top Choice for Role in James Bond 24
Following news that the script for James Bond 24 had to be overhauled in order to add some more thrills to the proceedings, a new rumors has popped up concerning a co-star for franchise star Daniel Craig. Previous rumors have pegged Penelope Cruz and Chiwetel Ejiofor as potential new cast members for the next film in the spy franchise, and now Schmoes Knows, who has a decent track record lately, has learned that Blue is the Warmest Color star Lea Seydoux is currently the studio's top choice for some sort of part in the sequel from Skyfall director Sam Mendes, though no specifics were revealed at this time. Read on!
While it would be cool to see an actress of Seydoux's caliber enter the James Bond universe, the actress already played with spies in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, where she was an assassin who faced off with the Impossible Mission Force and ended up getting kicked out of a window by Paula Patton from the tallest building in the world. Therefore, having her head to this franchise seems a bit repetitive. But if they have a juicy role for her to take on, it might be worth it, especially since becoming a Bond girl is certainly nothing to balk at. For now this is just a rumor, but stay tuned as production looms closer.
