Who do you want to see as the Next James Bond?

Post by malickfan on Mon May 30, 2016 9:06 pm

With it looking more and more likely that Craig has retired from the role, I thought I'd start a poll to discuss who you want to see as his sucessor.

Personally I'm a tad gutted to see Craig go, he was one of my favourite Bonds, and I liked most of his four films, but I'm certainly curious as to who is going to take over.

(The names listed in the poll are merely ones connected with the role, or fan favorites to take over, not necessarily likely casting, of those listed my pick would be Fassbender, but he's probably too old and busy)

Wasn't there a rumor that they wanted someone significantly younger than Craig? He was 38 when Casino Royale came out. I'd love Elba or Hardy but if the rumor is true I doubt either of them would get the role.

I'd say Elba, to annoy anyone who would actually be annoyed by that.

Also, he's probably the best actor on that list..

Other than that I struggle to care about James Bond, to be honest. Razz

Yeah, I'd read that, Craig's 47(?) getting and staying in shape for months at a time can't be fun at that age (and with the frequent accidents and injuries insurance will probably be much higher with an older, established actor) and he hasn't done much outside Bond for years, so I don't blame him for stepping down, a younger, cheaper Bond would be easier to lock into a contract (Aidan Turner has been linked to the role)

Elba and Hardy are both great actors, but might be too old/expensive/similar in physique to follow Craig i.m.o.

But...explosions! one liners! sexy ladies! stupid stunts! misogynism! It's just like a Michael Bay film, but British...

Assbender is great but for some reason I have a hard time imagining him as James Bond. Maybe it's cause he already played a British secret agent in Inglourious Basterds? I dunno.

I like Hiddlebum for the role, after the hyper butch Craig I would like to see a more elegant Bond. He needs to bulk up a bit though because he is very thin.

Yeah Smile just put a few pounds on, you know, muscles in all the right places Smile Hiddlebum certainly has the elegance, hes well spoken, can kept that stiff upper lip Smile He played a so called spy very well in "The Night Manager" on tv recently Smile


{{{ And hes got a nice peachy bum, all Bonds must have a nice toned but peachy bum Smile }}}

Have you seen Hiddlebum? he looks like he could snap in a breeze. Bond has to look like he can handle himself.
