P Diddy as James Bond?!?

P Diddy, Diddy or, even Doodie. Whatever you call him...he wants to play James Bond. If they'll let me play Blade...well, maybe.

From Yahoo!:

Diddy says he wants to be the first black James Bond

11/03/2006 2:00 PM, Yahoo! Music
Dotmusic

Diddy says he wants to be the first black James Bond. The rap star put himself forward for the role at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Copenhagen last night.

Diddy, who's only previous acting role was in Monster's Ball five years ago, said: "One day the time will come for a black Bond, and hopefully I can audition for it.

"It's a dream of mine to play a great role like that," he admitted before insisting he was the man to keep Bond fans entertained should he get the part in the future.

However, Diddy has backed new 007 Daniel Craig, who takes a bow as in Casino Royale later this month.

He said: "I love the Bond they have now. He's a great actor and I think they made a great choice."

Did the writer not see Made? I think he could be a decent Bond, the role doesn't require acting and he could look the part.

Come on, enought with this, "Let's change the ethnicity of an established character just for effect," crap.

Get real, P. Dud.

Yeah, and the time will come for a WHITE Shaft, too!

This idiot, he originally wanted to be "Robert Brown" or something of a 007 knock off. The imdb page may still exist. I'm pretty confident EON had a laugh when they heard this.

Diddy could sample "MY NAME IS BOND" from the Connery movies as his line.
In fact use Diddy's whole speaking lines as samples from other Bond movies, this would make sense. And the public would understand why it was done.

The only person who could possibly, maybe, even attempt such a thing would be Denzel Washington.

Big i'd imagine his response to such a request would be "Why?"

Just to play devil's advocate, did Fleming ever describe Bond as white in the books?

Not sure about that.

But at the very least how could the Bond character ever be anything but British? Dipshitty's a linguistic nightmare as it is without having him throw a Brit accent on top.

Colin Salmon ("Prime Suspect 2", "Keen Eddie") could be a cool Bond.

The last thing I ever want to see is an Aston Martin DB5 riding on 24 inch gold spinners.

To hell with Diddy.

If Kanye West doesn't get to be Bond, the whole franchise loses credibility.

He'll be too busy with "The Passion of the Kanye" and most likely "The Last Temptation of Kanye".
