Is Sienna The New Bond Girl?

First, a new Bond. And now, Daniel Craig may have his new Bond girl.
Rumor has it Craig is urging producers to make British beauty Sienna Miller his love interest in the next 007 movie.
Miller, who steamed up the screen with Craig in 2004's "Layer Cake," would step into the role of Vesper Lynd in the next Bond installment -- "Casino Royale."
Craig, a 37-year-old, sandy-haired Englishman was introduced in October as the new James Bond, ending months of speculation.
His selection was revealed as he was whisked down the Thames River aboard a military Rigid Raider boat to a news conference.
The Evolution Of James Bond "It is a huge iconic figure in movie history, and those things don't come along very often," the star said.
Craig is the first blond actor and only the second Englishman to star as Agent 007 in the movie series. (Roger Moore played Bond in seven films from 1973-85.)
Relatively unknown outside Britain, Craig appeared in the landmark 1990s British TV drama "Our Friends in the North" and in films including "The Mother," "Enduring Love" and in the aforementioned "Layer Cake."
He played Paul Newman's sinister son in "Road to Perdition," was poet Ted Hughes opposite Gwyneth Paltrow's Sylvia Plath in "Sylvia" and starred in this year's thriller "The Jacket" with Adrien Brody.
Ian Fleming's first Bond novel, originally published in 1953, "Casino Royale" is one of the few Bond adventures not to feature the MI6 gadget-maker Q. It was previously filmed as a 1967 spoof starring Peter Sellers.
"Royale" is scheduled to begin filming next month.
