Her name is Green...Eva Green. This time the rumors turned out to be true after Casino Royale producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli (why do I love that name so much?) officially proclaimed today that Eva Green will play the next Bond girl, Vesper Lynd. It's been a wild 24 hours over at Bond camp, having just announced yesterday that Mads Mikkelsen had snagged the role of the evil Le Chiffre, prompting writers like to me to start caring again. Jeffrey Wright fans can high-five one another because the actor has also signed on to play Felix Leiter.

But who is Eva Green? {Cue theme song from The Dating Game} Well, she's 26 years old and was born in Paris, France. She's a former Emporio Armani model and can be seen in films like Kingdom of Heaven and The Dreamers. Eva has a twin sister named Joy and her father is a Swedish dentist. Oh, and she's beautiful. Wilson and Broccoli supported the casting choice today by saying, "We are thrilled that Eva and Mads have joined the cast of 'Casino Royale' completing a first rate international cast. They bring exceptional talent to the characters Ian Fleming described so vividly in his first James Bond novel."
