The latest James Bond movie, Spectre, has just hit screens the world over, and the internet is buzzing with talk about who the next 007 could be. Will he be gay? Will he be black? Or could James even be a woman?
Here is the official Koeksisters selection of women that would make the most badass Bond ever.
1. Casey Legler
Measuring in at 6.2 ft, Casey cuts an imposing figure, and her athletic build and Olympic history put her in good stead for the action-packed task of being 007.
Add to the mix her gender fluidity and ability to pull off a tux with flare, and you’ve got yourself a mercurial and dangerous 007.
2. Gillian Anderson
Gillian has all the poise (and the accent) of a Bond, and twice the balls.
Her roles as Dana Scully and Stella Gibson have proven that you don’t need a gun when you can cut your counterpart to pieces with your tongue.
3. Lupita Nyong’o
Lithe, suave and impeccably crisp, Lupita exemplifies the cool style of Bond. Add to that her steely resolve and award-winning acting and she’s sure to deliver a complex and sophisticated James.
And those biceps. Don’t even get me started.
4. Ruby Rose
Having just earned herself the title of GQ Woman of the Year in Australia, Ruby certainly isn’t short of fans.
Her dark looks and natural bad-assery would make for a cheeky and devilishly hot Bond.
I wonder how those tattoos would go down with M?
5. Noomi Rapace
Noomi proved her mettle in the Swedish triology The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Motor bikes, weapons and battling twisted nemeses are part of her repertoire.
She’d more than match the physical challenges of a secret agent and her subtle performance would bring interesting notes and flavours to an all too familiar character.
Who do you think would make an excellent female James Bond?
