Hiddleston is an excellent actor but I'd rather see him as a villain in a Bond movie than as Bond.

My vote would go to Fassbender, but he may be a little overexposed at this point.

Unlike some others in this thread, I've enjoyed Craig's take on Bond. Time will tell if it holds up for me though.
Fassbender would be awesome.

But it'd be better if they made him the Bond from the appropriate era. Cuz he really fits that look.

Seriously... get a separate independent budget for a run of those old storries. They'd probably cost no more than $20 million for each one.

Idris Elba is the only person I can actually picture as Bond. He already has the charisma and screen presence. I like the idea of Clive Owen as well.

Andy Serkis - let him do the motion capture and then they can fill in their "perfect" James Bond.

Re: Who would you like to see become the next James Bond?

It was the combination of Croupier and Gosford Park that made me want Owen for the role, but I just think it's too late. Even if they cast him tomorrow (which isn't happening) he would be close to his mid-50s by the time they got a film made.

I think that Hiddleston has an impish quality that would be a good counter direction to go after Craig.

Can't really see Fassbender in the role. Voted for Hardy.

Re: Who would you like to see become the next James Bond?

Congratulations, you guys have just created a new dream ... A Zoe Saldana rainbow orgy.

Also, congrats for making the third page with nobody suggesting Chris Pratt or Nathan Fillion.

I guess the question will be "how do they want to continue?" Do they really want to reboot again and go with a younger or older actor/storylines? Do they want to go back to more fantastical stories or stay grounded in reality? It took us this long to get to Blofeld and SPECTRE, are we really going to flush it now?

Personally, I agree with the notion that it should be a relatively unknown actor. I really cannot picture Hiddleston as Bond. Elba has been bantered about so long that I don't know that he would work out. Hardy might be good, but I think he is too overexposed (besides, I think he found a franchise).

‘Superman’ Henry Cavill Wants to Be the New James Bond

‘Batman v Superman’ star Henry Cavill revealed that he would 'love' to play James Bond in a new 007 movie, if his ‘Justice League’ schedule allows it.


"I'm very busy with the Superman stuff, but if there were any windows and they wanted me to do that kind of role, it would be great. I would love to do it."

Ah yes, you are right. I forgot about Lazenby and forgot that Brosnan is Irish. Okay, give it to the charismatic Fassbender then. Forget Cavill, he can't act for shit.

I've been watching the Night Manager. I don't really care for Tom Hiddleston but he's giving one hell of an audition for the role of James Bond on this show. This show has the brief tittage sorely lacking in the Bond franchise.

While watching the Divergent films for the first time recently, both my wife and I thought Theo James seemed like he could be a good choice (if they wanted to go young).

I'm definitely in the Elba camp. Not only would having a black Bond be nice for the barriers it'd break, but I think he's a damn-near perfect choice: suave, handsome, badass, and with a nice darkness he could bring out when needed.
