Brosnan's reign as 007 has ended. Link

Who should replace him?

If Hollywood has their way it will be P. Diddy, Adam Sandler or Jessica Simpson.


Link Posted: 8/17/2005 10:23:27 AM EDT
Nobody. I think it's time we retire Bond. In fact, I think we should have retired him BEFORE Brosnan. Leave a good thing along, don't run it into the ground.

Hugh!

If he were a little younger, I'd say Guy Pearce (I think he could have done a good job).

As it is, I think they'd be better off with someone who fits the "mold" but is relatively young and relatively unknown - Bond movies have never had to rely on "star-power" in the lead role.

I say retire that franchise. Like Star Trek.

It has lived past its entertaining value.





If anything I say get that jerk guy from American Idol or Carrot Top. Either will be fine. I may actually go watch it.

I'm a big Hugh Jackman fan, see everything he's in... but I don't think he'd make a good Bond. Even if he did, he'd only be good for a few films. YMMV, of course.

Bart Simpson!

Since he never ages, they can just keep using him over and over and over again. That way they don't have to find a new actor every few movies.

Yes.
Second best Bond, after Connery.

Moore sort of fucked the series in his last few, and Dalton was left to make up for it.
A darker, more malevolent Bond, which returns to Connery's roots, is required.

I really think they need to stem off of the old Bond franchise and we need a less classy American spy that works for the CIA. He can be a redneckish character or something to the extent of Dirty Harry-esque character or something along those lines.

I've gotten sick of James Bond, the snooty character and the shallow, repetitive plots.

Famous Bond lines if Oprah was the new 007...

"Green figs, yoghurt, coffee very black, 3 omelettes, extra cheese, sausage gravy, biscuits, two chickens, fried, one turkey leg, two dozen donuts, a box of chocolates, Godiva, very large, Cheez Whiz and a diet coke..."

"You know I'd never even look at another breakfast buffet"

+1 for Christian Bale. Hell, the 2 best Bonds have been a Scotsman and an Irishman, might as well let the other leg of the Celtic triangle have a go!

For some reason Dalton has always been maligned. I like him as well. Definately an edgier Bond.

FWIW, I think Roger Moore was by far the worst.

Timothy Dalton sucked ass. There is a reason why his tenure as Bond was so short.....HE SUCKED.

+another for Clive Owen. That guy was funny as hell in "Closer."

Roger Moore started out good and represented Bond to a new generation.
However, Moore fucked the series in his last few movies and Dalton suffered for it.
By the time Dalton got there, people already stopped going to Bond movies.

I would have thought so too, but...

www.unc.edu/~apwebb/inls102/Assignment_5.html (Yes, I can see that it's a school assignement and no, I didn't go to IMDB and verify the figures or check the math...)

A View to a Kill (1985, the last Roger Moore 007 film) made $152,400,000 worldwide ($260,043,122.68, scaled to 2003 USD) compared to The Living Daylights (1987, Timothy Dalton's first Bond flick) at $191,200,000 worldwide (or $309,016,901.41, similarly scaled). There was a significant dip from Dalton's first movie to his second (and last), so I can see why folks blamed him for hurting the franchise. (But I still thought he was great and very true to the books' descriptions IMO.) It took back off big-time with Brosnan (whom I didn't care for at first, but he grew on me...).

I read an article a while back in which the author thought that Denzel Washington should be the next Bond, because he was the only current male actor in Hollywood with Connery's charisma.

I have to admit, if ever there was to be a black Bond, Denzel should play him.

I dunno,but did you see Jill St John last nite in Diamonds are Forever on AMC. She was so ummm squeezable. Whatever happened to her?
