Is it time for me to get back to a straight up battle? I'll eschew the character driven battle this week and focus on the fact that the dude at the center of this one is married to an all-time hottie and gets primo tail cast opposite him in pretty much everything he stars in, including this week's COWBOYS & ALIENS. It's deserved, but he's still quite the lucky bastard.
Sienna gives him a sexy strip-down in LAYER CAKE which sorta makes up for her having lousy motivation to do so. (If I'm remembering the circumstances of that scene correctly.) Perhaps one of the only blondes with strong enough charisma of her own to be cast as the Blonde Bond's love interest.
I wasn't sold on Craig being a sexy Bond, having grown up seeing the Bonds of the past be tall, DARK and mysterious. But it had also been a long time since I had felt there had been a worthy Bond babe until Olga came along. She didn't just break the streak of sub-par Bond goddesses (Yes, Eva Green was hot but her character was so flawed, I could hardly find her attractive with all that baggage), she vaulted herself into the top ranks of the all-time hotties from those films.
She's tall, thin and gorgeous. She's every regular woman's nightmare. Yet there's something about Wilde that makes her an even more deadly threat - she's tough and smart and can get even the most jaded of us to relate to her. You want so desperately to find a reason to hate her (hell, she was married to royalty and left him because he wasn't good enough for her) but just love her even more. She's the perfect female foil for Craig.
Which Daniel Craig co-star makes you envy his career most?
