It's funny, it's been so long since I have watched a trailer for No Time To Die or given a lot of thought about who is actually in this one -- I haven't thought about any of that much since before the pandemic began, when the movie got first delayed -- that my head was spinning as I looked at the IMDb cast list just now. Besides Daniel Craig, who is of course the main event, there's Naomie Harris and Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw (oh and sidenote: this video:
#NoTimeToDie star Ben Whishaw tells Attitude he'd 'love' to see an out gay British actor cast as James Bond - and he reckons @TheRealLukevans or Bridgerton's Jonathan Bailey would do a 'thrilling' job... pic.twitter.com/sWCLcSZ6gP— Attitude Magazine (@AttitudeMag) September 27, 2021
...) and Jeffrey Wright and Ana de Armas and Léa Seydoux and Billy Magnussen and okay yes Rami Malek (he's still on notice because of that godawful Oscar win)... oh and Rory Kinnear, we love Rory. I'd watch fifty movies with just this cast. Anyway I'm bringing all of this up because I somehow scammed an invite to the big screening this afternoon here in NYC -- never say that annoying people doesn't work! -- so that's where I am headed now. I am dressed up and everything! Watch out, Regé-Jean Page -- once Barbara Broccoli sees me in my slacks the gig's mine!
