POLL: Another day, another Kate Upton movie role rumor, but one in particular got us wondering . . .

We’re well aware that plenty of these rumors turn out to be nothing more than the work of some fanboy/fangirl who has read The Secret, but we’ll pretend for the sake of this post that Kate Upton is the next Bond Girl (which we think would be even cooler than her potential role in the upcoming Entourage movie.)

Since its inception only one SI Swimsuit model has made a turn as a Bond Girl: Barbara Carrera a.k.a. Fatima Blush, which got us thinking: if we had lured some of Bond’s most classic ladies off the silver screen and into the pages of SI, which of these scenarios would you have most liked to see?

Scroll down to see the candidates, then cast your vote at the bottom.

**admittedly more of a James Bond than a Bond Girl, but I have three words for you: Pierce Brosnan centerfold***
