I have a huge celebrity crush on Ilana Glazer of Broad City and I think she has the makings of a A1 Hollywood superstar because of her personality, if nothing else. But, to date, she’s not really been in anything of note outside of Broad City.
As a big fan of the James Bond franchise, I think it would be amusing, interesting and intriguing if she were cast as a Bond Girl. She’s not your typical Bond Girl by any stretch of the imagination, but given her broad appeal, I think a lot of people would enjoy seeing her matching wits with Bond. The Bond serious has become so epic and serious minded that Glazer would be perfect as comic relief. She would put her own unique spin on it all and I think it would be a real crow pleaser to cast her in such a role.
Meanwhile, I’m working on a novel and the female lead is — in part — based on Glazer. Glazer reminds me a great deal of someone in my own life and I am drawing upon Glazer’s public persona to build out the character. The character is a little bit younger than Glazer, so I couldn’t see her playing the character in any daydream possible movie adaptation, but still.
I am currently working on the outline of the novel and it’s a lot of fun. I don’t know if my writing is good enough to make the actual end product something anyone will want to read, but I enjoy the process of doing it, regardless.
