Topic: Monica Bellucci

What do you guys think of her entry in SPECTRE? I remember she was offered the role of Paris Carver for TND (which I think would have been great) I really like her as an actress, I think she's a beautiful woman.

Also, did you realise that this is only the third time a Bond girl is actually older than the actor playing Bond?
That only happened with Honor Blackman and Diana Rigg if i'm not mistaken.  So that hasn't happened since the 60íes!

She reminds me of Carole Bouquet

But she does look excellent.

Re: Monica Bellucci

I don't think that she'll be a Bond girl but I wished her to be cast for a VERY long time.

I find Teri Hatcher highly annoying everytime and everywhere that I see her, Bellucci at her place would have been great!

Re: Monica Bellucci

She has a great look which brings to mind the Euro casting of the '60s (Andress, Bianchi, Auger, Paluzzi). Perhaps she'll be Waltz's wife or lover. They'd make a great pair of kinky villains.

As a separate point, I'd like to see her real-life husband, Vincent Cassell turn up as a baddie one day. He'd be wildly flamboyant.

Blofeld?

As in, the lead villain, daughter of (the late?) Ernst Stavro?

I completely agree. She would be great as a Paluzzi/Fiona Volpe style villain...and yes, Vincent Cassell looks like he was born to play a Bond villain.

Here's an idea. . .maybe she's the reimagined Irma Bunt?  Instead of a dumpy, fierce German hausfrau we get a sultry Italian bombshell!

Re: Monica Bellucci

I could not be happier right now. I am glad that she finally got her chance to be a Bond girl(something I have wanted since the late 1990"s).

Great idea.  I was going to say, but David Schofield beat me to it, that wouldn't it be a great misdirect if all this buzz about two-time Oscar Winner Christoph Waltz playing Blofeld was just to make the revelation that she is actually a Blofeld more surprising?  Is it too much like TWINE?  Ironic, since I always think of Belucci when I think of Marceau.  In fact, even Barbara Broccoli reminded me of Belucci in "Everything Or Nothing"  Thoughts on Belucci being a Blofeld?(through genetics not marriage to Waltz's character)

Great way to redeem herself for being in Shoot 'Em Up.

Redeem herself??? She was the best thing about that silly flick. The MOVIE needs to redeem itself for not being worthy of her presence. ajb007/lol

I like Bellucci, I'm excited that she's part of the SPECTRE cast. I just hope that she's not Blofeld.

Re: Monica Bellucci

She's beautiful and she can act.  Now all they have to do is give her something memorable to say and do.
