Helen McCrory And French Actress Berenice Marlohe Join Bond Cast

The casting is being finalized for the upcoming Bond movie, which has yet to be titled. Among the casting additions is French actress Berenice Marlohe, who’s the latest Bond girl. Also joining the cast is Helen McCrory, who may be recognized by Harry Potter fans for playing Draco’s mother, Narcissa Malfoy.

According to Daily Mail, Marlohe was screen-tested by director Sam Mendes for the movie and the French beauty met his approval. The site also mentioned that 28 Days Later‘s Naomie Harris has been cast to play Miss Moneypenny.

As for McCrory, her role is currently unspecified, much like the title of the film, though recent rumors suggest that Bond 23 may be called Skyfall, though there’s been no official confirmation on that as well. What is confirmed, based on these latest cast additions, is that, much like in the previous Bond films, the women in this one are all exceptionally beautiful.

The Hour's Ben Whishaw also joins the cast, but much like McCrory, his role is unspecified at this time.

Whishaw, McCrory, Harris and Marlohe join Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, and Ralph Fiennes in the cast of the next installment of James Bond’s adventures, which is expected to hit theaters next fall (November 9, 2012).
