Nerdist was started by Chris Hardwick and has grown to be a many headed beast.

Alison Haislip, Secret Agent-Type Person!

by on July 20, 2011

You know Friend-of-Nerdist Alison Haislip from her work on G4. Perhaps you also know her from NBC’s The Voice, and you’ve surely heard her on the Nerdist Podcast. And you know she’ll be part of G4′s Comic-Con coverage and will be making other appearances at the show (more on that later in this post). But did you know that Alison has an alter ego? Meet Jane Bond, Agent 008, licensed to kill:

Yes, in advance of her appearances at Comic-Con, Alison did a little role-playing for a photo shoot, and Nerdist has been honored as the exclusive site for the pictures’ debut. They’re like she was dropped right into a James Bond movie, or a video game, or both.


Here she is, having just dropped two guards at a secret rebel base, inspecting the damage to her fingernails:

And here, she’s doing her best about-to-spring-out-and-shoot-the-guard pose:

Finally, having shot the guy in the first stall, she’s ready to take another big enemy guard out. Can she spare a square? I don’t think that’s really an issue at this point:

The photo credit goes to Dave Cox and Wil Wells of Elevendy, and they’re at www.elevendy.com. They did a great job — give ‘em a hand.
