NEWTON…THANDIE NEWTON: Actress reportedly cast as new Bond Girl.

*Looks like 007 has a penchant for the sisters.  According to Britain’s The Sun newspaper, Thandie Newton has been cast as the next Bond girl for the upcoming “Casino Royale.”

Newton follows in the footsteps of Halle Berry, who stepped into the iconic role for 2002’s “Die Another Day.” Newton, according to The Sun, will play sexy spy Vesper Lynd in “Casino Royale” opposite Daniel Craig as the franchise’s first blond James Bond. 

Newton, last seen in the critically-acclaimed film “Crash,” gave an impressive audition, according to Craig, after the part was reportedly turned down by such actresses as Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron. 

Rachel Stirling, the daughter of former Bond girl Diana Rigg, was one of the actresses reportedly in contention for the role, as was Australian actress Rose Bryne - who starred opposite Brad Pitt in ‘Troy,’ and Vera Farmiga.
