Jessica Chastain on the hunt for 'Bond Boy' hunk to complete her action movie cast
Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson insists he's her man.
Jessica Chastain has asked fans for a little casting help as she tries to find a "Bond Boy" for her latest movie.
The actress announced plans for all-female action movie 355 at last year's (18) Cannes Film Festival in France, recruiting Penelope Cruz, Lupita Nyong'o, Marion Cotillard, and Fan Bingbing to join her at the launch, but she has yet to pick the movie's leading man.
Jessica, who will serve as a producer on the film alongside director Simon Kinberg, has taken to Twitter to seek out ideas, asking followers: "If you were going to make an ensemble female action movie and you needed a #BondBoy who would you cast? Asking for a friend. #eyecandyneeded."
The #BondBoy is a reference to the iconic Bond girls, who famously woo James Bond in the 007 movies.
Chastain received a quick response from pal Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who insisted he'd be perfect for the role.
"Jessica, we’re friends... just ASK me," he joked.
The actress previously revealed she couldn't be more excited about the early buzz surrounding 355, because she and her castmates are all so deeply involved.
"Basically, we're making the film independently...," she told breakfast show Today last year (18). "We own equity in the film. We went to Cannes and we sold it, and we raised more than we needed to and we're now owners of the film. We're the studio!"
Ironically, Jessica's search for a new "Bond Boy" comes as 007 producers are considering who will replace current 007 Daniel Craig when he steps down from the franchise after one more film.
