Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has said she wants to see an all-female Supreme Court, because, no one questioned when it was all men.
The BBC had a chance to do some interesting casting for the newest Doctor, and instead went with an older Caucasian gentleman. As much as I might not be a fan, it would have been awesome to see Idris Elba get the role (and would have made my birthday game for AoG Editor Mike all those years ago prophetic!).
Instead of looking at which actors would be fun casting for the next James Bond, and blowing people’s minds by suggesting non-white dudes, why not really think big and cast a woman?
When Daniel Craig was announced, there was hullaballoo because he was blond. And now, Idris Elba’s name comes up again. Sure, that could be fun.
We survived and thrived with the blond Bond, who was quippy enough to imply he might have been bisexual, a topic interesting enough to be covered in the Huffington Post. I greatly enjoyed that scene. But, why can’t Bond be a woman? And not Jane Bond. James Bond. Ryan Reynolds has made it ok. Because Thor is whoever holds the hammer, and that other fellow is the Odinson.
Now, which females should be considered? Here are our 7:
Archie Panjabi-James Bond likes ice cream.
Catherine Zeta Jones-Connery would approve.
Charlize Theron-Furiosa. Nuff Said.
Kate Beckinsale-From one Underworld to another.
Miranda Raison-From MI-5 to 007
Rosmund Pike-Bond Girl becomes Bond.
Zoë Bell-She would do her own stunts.
Who do you think the next Bond should be?
