Has Ben Whishaw Been Cast in James Bond 23 ?


Over the last few months, there’s been plenty of rumors and very few confirmations about who might be appearing in Sam Mendes’ upcoming and untitled James Bond movie currently dubbed Bond 23.

Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes are still being considered for two unnamed leads, but one name we haven’t heard mentioned but who seems to already be attached is actor Ben Whishaw. According to our sources, the 30-year-old British actor who has appeared in movies like Bright Star, I’m Not There and Layer Cake (with current Bond Daniel Craig) will be co-starring in the movie in an undisclosed role.

We also have learned from the same source that the two “Bond Girls” this time around will be a “beautiful English Agent” and a “Beautiful Asian woman” named “Severin.” With Dame Judi Dench returning as and Naomie Harris being rumored to be a part of the movie playing the new Moneypenny, that means there are two other female roles to be cast.

Since the movie is set to start shooting this November with a set release date of November 9, 2012, we have to assume that some of these roles and casting will be confirmed soon enough, but for now, there’s a few small tidbits to keep you sated.
