British tabloid claims Daniel Craig will sport a beard in Bond 23

The red top rumor mill, The Sun, is claiming that 007 actor Daniel Craig will be donning a beard for (part of) the shoot of James Bond 23 which kicks off next month.

The ‘catchy’ headline they opted for was “James Beard”.

An uncredited ‘source’ tells the paper, apparently, that:

They’ve really scaled back. The lavish production and locations have been cut. There is only a reduced cast and crew travelling to the few overseas destinations. There’s not so flash hand-to-hand fighting, it’s gone back to blowing stuff up – including London’s Vauxhall Bridge

Bond fans should be skeptical.

Brazilian model Ana Araujo rumored for James Bond 23 girl’s role

Although Aces Showbiz only cites a unnamed source, they are reporting that Ana Araujo (famed in English speaking countries for being the girlfriend of the Rolling Stones’s Ronnie Wood) is in the running for the same role as Brit Naomie Harris.

A source close to the movie project told the tabloid, “Ana is really excited.” The source added, “It’s all very new to her but she is optimistic about the prospect of landing the role. It’s very much a case of watch this space.”

It is unclear which tabloid or if this blogger means Aces Showbiz itself.

According to the same source Araujo has been focusing on livening her acting career and in a recent interview confessed to wanting to work with incumbent Bond star, Daniel Craig.

“I’m now focusing on acting. I’ve got some major roles coming up. My ideal role would be to be a Bond girl and with Daniel Craig as my James Bond, he’s perfect and very handsome.”

Treat such loose connections and rumorswith skepticism.

Tabloids roll out the Freida Pinto Bond Girl rumors again

Older than herself, this rumor has legs… if not foundation.

According to the Toronto Sun Pinto, famed for Slumdog Millionaire, is keeping her options open and is ‘coy’ about any role in Bond 23:

“As Bond?” she responds, smiling. “I don’t know — I haven’t read anything, I haven’t seen anything yet, so I’m not sure about that. I’m not predicting anything. I cannot see the future.”

“If the character’s interesting and not just a cardboard cut-out — because I have a problem doing that. But I’d like to be Bond.”

Eastern news wires mix up ‘Carte Blanche’ and Bond 23

According to Blic Online, 007 will have a run in with a cellist in James Bond 23… but it is not so simple.

They claim that 007 will be shooting his 23rd James Bond film adventure is Serbia (despite hot tips that Bond will be off to India and South Africa) and that Jelena Mihailovic, a Serbian cellist will be involved in the production as opening theme composer.

The paper carries a quote from the performer herself:

“I am delighted to have been given the honour to meet those important people. I have had a chance to work with some established musicians like Gautier Capucon, Gary Hoffman, Christian-Pierre La Marca, Leonid Gorokhov, but now opportunities are opening up. Contact has been made and I am expecting an invitation to go to the USA soon, and until that time, I will be working on my new album, which is due to be released in October,” said Jelena, who has also been dubbed the Serbian Vanessa May.

However, the similarities between this ‘vision’ of Bond 23 and Jeffery Deaver’s ‘Carte Blanche‘ are not to be missed. Bond heads to Serbia in Deaver’s book, and the news wire even dubs the film that “new James Bond film, entitled Carte Blanche”.

Watch out for more trading on the 007 brand as news and rumors hot up!

UPDATE: The news is spreading and some bloggers and news sites are taking this as indication that Bond 23 will be Carte Blanche. Highly suspect in our book.

Wilde – cast in the upcoming extravaganza, Cowboys and Aliensemphatically denied any links to 007 and Bond 23 via twitter the same month as the Pinto rumours recirculated.

“Reality” TV star Kim Kardashian wants to be a Bond girl

With Bond 23 casting news comes the self-promotional tabloid stories.

According to ITN, citing MTV, says that Kim Kardashin – known for Keeping Up with the Kardashians amongst other digressions – has put her name in that hat to be a Bond girl. The 30 year-old said: “I would love to be in a Bond film – a Bond girl – that would be the ultimate.”

Be mindful that Celebrity-X coveting a role does not mean they are on the producer’s radar in any respect.
