According to reports, the actress is in talks to play a CIA head opposite Taron Egerton in Kingsman 2. Berry famously joined forces with James Bond as spy Jinx Johnson in 2002’s Die Another Day.

Shondaland just got a little more political. Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, Ellen Pompeo, and Viola Davis all voiced their support for Hillary Clinton during this week’s TGIT segment.

After they all made it clear that “I’m with Hillary,” the presidential hopeful took to Twitter to thank them, tweeting, “@shondarhimes @tonygoldwyn @kerrywashington @violadavis @ellenpompeo: Talk about a power lineup. Thank you for being on this team!”
