The name’s Bond, Miss Bond. Actress Famke Janssen asks why the next 007 must be a man.

Actress Famke Janssen asks why the next 007 must be a man.

“It is 2005, anything can happen. I think even James Bond being black is a great idea. I think James Bond could be a woman at this point,” she says.

But according to the rumour mill, Janssen might be disappointed, and Daniel Craig may be donning the tuxedo instead.

Janssen, of course, is already known to Bond fans as Xenia Onatopp, who crushed her victims between her thighs in Golden Eye.
