In case a few Oscars weren’t good enough, it seems like everyone from the Slumdog cast is the next “hot thing”. Freida Pinto’s career has especially blossomed with rumors of Woody Allen’s next film and now this, from popcruch:
According to sources with Britain’s The Sun, the stunning 24-year-old has been invited to a screen test for the upcoming Bond flick after first coming to the attention of producers during the casting for Quantum of Solace.
“Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting Quantum of Solace. She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent, but she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel Craig’s arm.”
Unless Freida gets naked I don’t see how this is newsworthy. What is newsworthy is the Slumdog action-figures that are coming out*. Yup, I got my hands on one of the prototypes and to see if it was really realistic, I took a dump, dropped the thing in the toilet and…Lo and behold! The action-figure came right back out with an autographed photo!
Technology is friggin sweet these days.
*This may or may not be true, but like my friend Mark Mcgwire I’m not here to talk about the past.
