A few weeks ago, we shared some news concerning the latest James Bond film. In that story, we reported that actress Naomie Harris was in negotiations to join the cast of the still untitled Bond 23. Speculation was that she’d play a “Bond girl” in the latest outing – but that was only half correct.
With a name like "Moneypenny", how is that Russian? At the end of the day, as long as the Bond girl is hot, what do you care if she's caucasian or a person of color? Get your heads out of the dark ends of your bodies with the antiquated thinking of Neanderthals.
Who cares about the color of the actress??? There is always some racist Jackass with nothing better to be concerned about. Well guess what? She's got the part and there is nothing the Jackass can do about it!!

Did you express those same concerns for Green Lantern who was Black in the comic books along with other Cartoon action figures, and when they painted white people to play indians and lets not forget the white people who played Asian Karate hero's....just sayin!
She should be a Bond interest, she's too memorable for the part of Moneypenny. They need more of a background type of person for Moneypenny. Pretty, but forgetable.
Really? You think it mattered to Bond, James Bond what color a woman was? He is an International Spy...which means all races will be represented...England is not 100% white...they are a melting pot of races and they should also be represented as well. If you only want an all white cast then change the character and the country where there is no other race in it. OR... make your own movie!!
Well said. People need to come off of this narrow minded thought process and prejudice of the dark ages. It's a shame that people are still hung on junk that means nothing in this day and age.
Tell 'em!! it's quite pathetic that in this day and age the issue of race is a big deal to some shallow minded individuals!!!
This will not work. Moneypenny is white. It makes no sense.
How is she white? Look at the new actress, she is not white.
I'm saying if they are going to carry on with this Quantum series as Bond's beginning they have to do everything by the book. Even though I enjoy Judi Dench as M, they should have gotten a guy for the role and if they are going to install Moneypenny, they should stick with the authentic Moneypenny look. I just can't see Naomi Harris as Moneypenny.
Don't worry you are about to see it!!!
Wasn't "M" supposed to be a MAN?!? Judy Dench is an awesome "M"!!! What's wrong with a little updated change? You gotta remember that Ian Fleming wrote Bond during the cold war. So it was ironic to have Moneypenny as a Russian. Most people nowadays wouldn't get the pun. I really like Namoie Harris and she'll be great!! Just give her a chance!!!
isn't 'moneypenny white and russian?
Not this one.
lame, How bout we just make bond gay while we are at it, thats much more P.C.
Wah! Wah! Wah!
Whats lame about it? I pray it happens so get over it!!
