Blonde beauty Naomi Watts has been tipped to follow in Halle Berry, Honor Blackman and Britt Ekland's footsteps as the next Bond girl. The Australian actress reportedly wowed 007 bosses in her role as Ann Darrow in giant ape movie King Kong, and has already received a phone call pleading for her to lend her talents to Casino Royale. If she accepts the offer, Watts could play Russian vixen Vesper Lynd opposite new superspy Daniel Craig. But friends of the star warn she may yet turn down the role, amid fears the typecasting could ruin her burgeoning career. Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron have already rejected offers to star in the film.
