collen farrel all the way.
What's with all the Australians and Americans in the list? Sorry but Bond should be British or at least from the UK... it's not like we've got a lot else left we can say is ours without losing 007 too!
It's like suggesting Hugh Grant plays Crocodile Dundee ;o)
I do believe the new Bond has already been selected now... does anyone know if this is the official word now?...and Bond hasn't always been an Englishman... there has been a Scot as well as an Aussie thus far. I also heard that Quentin Tarantino wants to direct the next Bond film... any thoughts on that one? :laugh:
I did make the point of saying British/UK rather than English for that reason G-Man as not only is Mr Connery a Scot but also Pierce Brosnan is Irish. Yes there was also George Lazenby but just the once
I just think that as the character is British and works for British secret service it just seems unrealistic to have a non-Brit, or at the very least non-Commonwealth, person play him?
As for directors I think Taratino's great and it could be very interesting to see what he does with it.
next bond will be HUGH GRANT! haha
I didn't overlook your clarification.
No G-Man but people here can get very picky about that one. If I'd publicly suggested Sean Connery was English I'd never be able to safely visit Scotland again
:laugh2: No need to mention it to me... I attended university in England for awhile.
I'll bet that was, interesting. :laugh2:
colin farel is cool to be the next james bond..but he's a bit short.
Now why do you say it like that? :laugh:
It was rather interesting, actually.
Cant believe Colin Farrell has got so many votes............Good actor but definately not a Bond
i think p.diddy should be the next bond, i think its about time to replace bond with a different colored person :thumbsup:
or denzel washington, an actor at that caliber should be able to play that role quite well i think.
I'm not certain if folks will find that so PC but... I'll leave it alone for now... I think Denzel could pull it off... but I believe Billy Dee Williams back in the day though... coulda' really pulled that off as a non-caucasian American actor! Are there any good British actors that might fit the bill though? I can think of a few African-Brit actors but none who are all that good come to mind... (not that they have to be an ace actor to play that role...).
There he's up. ...and look! already he shot up into first place! :laugh:
All due respect to the incredibly talented Mr. Washington, but I don't think he'd pull of the accent, but he does have the charm. By the way, why is Guy Pearce/Pierce up there twice?
Colin Farrell is one of my favorite actors, but I don't see him being the dashing and charming Bond. (Actually it scares me to think of giving him a licence to kill).
I thinkthe only person who could currently play Bond is John shuttleworth.
Looks like the current favourite is Ewan McGregor :
I think there's something wrong with your link there Si.
Should be from GB!
