We recommend you take this rumor with a huge grain of salt, as it seems like everyone short of Alexis Arquette has been named "the next Bond girl" at some point, but the British tabloids are reporting that producer Barbara Brocolli has offered soul singer Amy Winehouse a role opposite Daniel Craig in the follow-up to Casino Royale, due next year. The source goes on to say, "She's perfect because she's the embodiment of the retro glamour of the original movies." Incidentally, this may be the first time that the hard-drinking, tattooed Winehouse (or "Wine-o," as she's affectionately known) and the word "glamour" have been used in the same sentence.
