MTV News caught up with Aussie actress Rose Byrne (“Sunshine,” FX’s “Damages”), and asked if she had been contacted about the role (Byrne’s name was previously batted around for “Casino Royale”). Byrne denied any involvement in “22,” exclaiming to us, “I think Abbie Cornish’s got it.”
While Cornish — a fellow Australian — has been rumored for the part since earlier this year, Byrne’s utterance lends extra credence to the story given the pair’s friendship. If true, Cornish’s appearance in “Bond” would mark the star’s first major break outside her home country, where she has made numerous acclaimed appearances in Australian television and film.
What do you think? Who would you like to see as a “Bond Girl?” Chime in below!
