Quantum of Solace
With the release of Roger Moore's autobiography, My Word Is My Bond, and the upcoming Quantum Of Solace (the 22nd film in the Official James Bond franchise), we couldn't help but ponder: Who is the best 007 EVER?

He must also:

1. Be a snazzy dresser.

2. Have a hot Bond girl.

3. Have a bitchin' ride.

Thandie Newton has been named as the next Bond girl. The raven-haired beauty will star opposite new 007 Daniel Craig - who was said to be "very impressed" with her audition - in 'Casino Royale.' The Crash star will play sexy spy Vesper Lynd in the movie, according to a report in Britain's The Sun newspaper.

Several leading actresses, including Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron, had been wanted by bosses to star opposite Craig but all reportedly turned down the role. Earlier this month, it was reported that producers had narrowed down their search to just four actresses.
