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.” Naomie Harris has been rumored to be a part of the movie and could in theory play the first role, but no word yet who might play the latter.
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.
