Thursday, February 16, 2006 Casino Royale Finally Finds Its Villain

Mads Mikkelsen

LOS ANGELES ( Mads Mikkelsen would be a fantastic name for a villain in a James Bond film. Before that happens, though, the Danish actor of that name will play Le Chiffre, 007's main adversary in the upcoming "Casino Royale."

...While the casting announcement on Mikkelsen ends one endlessly speculated "Casino Royale" question, James Bond remains without a love interest. Director Martin Campbell made no effort to put a stop to the suspense about which actress will play the mysterious Vesper Lynde. The most recent buzz has centered on Eva Green ("The Dreamers") and Olivia Wilde ("The O.C.").

Stay tuned, as we like to say. They've just got to cast somebody eventually.

Eva Green would be a good choice. She was horribly miscast in KINGDOM OF HEAVEN but I think she'd be terrific as a Bond girl.
