Starlog Archives: Casino Royale


It’s hard to believe but it has been a full decade since Daniel Craig debuted as James Bond.  At the time, Craig’s casting was controversial due to his blond hair.  It seems silly now, but fans dismissed Craig as “James Blond” prior to the release of Casino Royale.  In December of 2006, the 007 reboot got Starlog’s cover story treatment.  As we come to the end of Craig’s tenure as Bond, here’s a look back at where it began.

A-List: Eva Green


Eva Green

“I think this [Showtime’s Penny Dreadful] and Sin City 2 have officially ended Eva Green’s time on the ‘It’ list.”

The quote above comes from a commenter on the Lebeau’s Le Blog FB Page.  (If you haven’t already done so, like us already!)  The comment sparked a bit of debate between myself and the commenter.  Even after the conversation had concluded, I was thinking about Green and her status in Hollywood.  I don’t think anyone would argue that Green is currently on the A-list.  But she certainly has the potential to be.  Following her turn as a Bond girl in the 2006 hit, Casino Royale, her name was on everyone’s lips.  But in the eight years that followed, Green has yet to become a star.

I could almost ask, “What the hell happened?”  But I think it’s still too early to write off Green’s chances of A-list stardom.  Because even though she has starred in two disappointing movies this year, I actually think Green is having a very good 2014 career-wise.
