I'll Rochambeau you for it

By a peculiar coincidence, I was trying to improvise a substitute carpet beater earlier this week. Having seen the original, and implicitly gruesome, version of James Bond's first torture scene I am just as happy for the latest remake to give it a miss. And I doubt any remake could surpass the creepiness of Peter Lorrie as Le Chiffre.

James Bond movie-makers are struggling over the new version of Casino Royale - because the story features a scene where 007's testicles are hit with a carpet beater.

Producers want the 2006 movie to be as close to Sir Ian Fleming's novel as possible, so have committed to recreating the scene in which Bond is held captive by baddie Le Chiffre.

Having experienced more than my fair share of unsolicited blunt impact testicular trauma in my life, I can safely say that the number of legs that will cross during that scene will easily go into six digits.

I'm morbidly curious about how the director will handle this, but part of me wants to reach down and protectively cradle the twins, who hurt just thinking about this.
