Reports out of the UK have Amy Winehouse all but confirmed to play the next Bond girl in the yet-to-be-filmed sequel to Casino Royale. And as we know, this sort of rumor is always true! So, get excited. The story’s source told Britain’s News Of The World:

She’s perfect for the role because she’s the embodiment of the retro glamor of the original movies.

The source went on, “Ya know they used to name drinks after Bond girls, right? This is all about bringing that back. You know, the glamor.” Anyway, she’s gonna need a good Bond girl name. Whatcha got?

    You mean “Amy Winehouse” isn’t Bond Girl-esque enough?

    I’m going to go ahead and say no. Not Bond girl material. Sorry Amy.

  4. NO!  |   Posted on May 7th, 2007 0

    No way she’s a Bond Girl…. You must have mistaken Bond with Powers…. as in Austin… Powers…. that would be much more appropriate (Beyonce and all…).

    That sucks. The last Bond movie was good and modern. Now they are going back to the tongue-n-cheek shit? Personally, I think Eva Green is the best example of what a Bond girl should be now.

    So a name for Winehouse? I’m not that creative, but it should be something that includes “sucks a lot”.

    100% Bullshit.

    Obviously false. What, all of a sudden James Bond lowers his standards and develops a taste for kinda nasty-looking headcases? Is he a blogger now too?

    Not to mention, she’ll be forgotten by the time the next Bond is released.

  8. my vote for bond name is Booby Shambles. you know you love it.

    She looks like a tranny on a budget…an expensive retro budget but still on a budget none the less.

    I’m seeing her tonight w00t w00t

  10. I suspect this is from the same source who last week revealed Kylie Minogue is going to play a temptress in the Christmas special of Dr Who. Which came as a surprise to Russell T Davies, who hadn’t written any such part into the script, largely because he’d not written the script.

    w00tw00t is right.

    When I first saw her I thought, “Who IS that guy?”

    Nice pipes, though.

    Trannie Galore?

    I like to think of the British press as one big practical joke on the world. It’s about half a step above The Onion in integrity but much funnier in a terribly sad way.

    This makes NME the hyperactive, half-retarded brother.

    Way too mannish.

    Scissor Sisters video? Sure! Bond girl? Ew.

    Nipplewhore McBreastvag.

    And I doubt this is true.

  19. she can sing the theme to the new bond…that would be hottness, really. As for being 007′s objecto de lust…I can’t see it.

    I concur, womyn, she is incredibly odd-looking.

    ive said this before and l will say it again keep your comments about our artists to your fat little selfs

  21. anonymo  |   Posted on May 7th, 2007 0

    I don’t understand why everyone fawns all over her singing. She’s really not that amazing. Is it because she’s white?

  22. Didn’t Bond do the trannie thing already?

  23. Dom  |   Posted on May 7th, 2007 0

    Way too fugly.

    Radiohead should sing the next Bond theme.

  28. There are a million other “Retro Fashion” beauties who make a much stronger case for the next Bond girl. I do like Amy Winehouse as a singer, however, not as a Bond girl.

    She looks weird because she’s so thin from all the coke she does, but her face is really wide and her hair is so big. It makes her seem like a Blythe doll.

    How about Hortence Chiclet-Teeth?

  31. VaughnTX  |   Posted on May 8th, 2007 0

    Sharon Needles?
    Hedda Lettuce?

  32. Isn’t pathetic the change in image she went through from her first album to her second?

    Her name should be Dude Looks Like A Lady.
