    ....How about... Rupert Penry-Jones, from spooks on BBC1 in the uk!!
    He along with Richard Armitage both have the British-ness and good presents on screen, plus good height!!! 6'+ both of them which is always a nice start!!!!? :D


    .....Hellooooo!!!
    As I named him earlier last week do I get a prize, ta for the pic!!!
    He has the look!?

    :D



    He also did the Aston Martin brochure a few years back, he said he wanted it when he was in spooks. But for me he'll be a romantic bond in the vein of PB and I don't wan that.

    He's not Dench. Connery and TD are well Dench.

    I´m still not sure if Benedict Cumberbatch would have the right face (what an arrogant thought), but in his scenes in War Horse he immediately dominated the screen. Amazing charisma that guy.

    I think he'd do a great job as Bond. Although, I do think he'd have to put on a stone or two in weight first. He's almost too thin at the moment.

    He's better suited for Sherlock, and does it so damn well. Bond can wait until the gig at 221B is up.

    Agreed, he doesn't have the suave good looks to play Bond.

    He's amazing... but not for Bond. If you can get a hold of the BBC Sherlock series watch them, don't think twice (unless you don't like Sherlock Holmes at all).
    If he didn't reach Germany yet he will sooner than later. He's in Spielberg's War Horse and later this year he's also playing Smaug in The Hobbit by the way.

    I couldn't see War Horse, because I can't watch animals being treated badly - yeah - but will try to catch him in something else.

    Not forgetting the fantastic Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or the upcoming Star Trek film.

    He is brilliant! Highly recommend him in Sherlock and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy!

    Had to smile when I read a couple of the posts about Cumberbatch playing Bond. He wouldn't be my cup of tea but a couple of the posts saying he is not 'sauve' enough or he needs to put on a couple of stones. Well . . . what about the current Bond? Sauve is not an adjective that springs to mind when describing the current Bond.


    If we are going to follow the current trend then I vote for Jason Statham.

    Nobody in his right mind can compare those two...as much as you want to trash someone...try to come up with somthing more believably...Statham is pure action hero - fortunate for Bond, DC both - action hero AND actor. And don*t even start to bash me on that.

    Jason has the style, but not the hair lol
    Bond's not hairless. And jason could look quite strange With hair.

    That's an opinion (mine to be precise), just like what you express in other threads.

    DC in CR was action hero/actor. DC in QOS was action hero, it felt more like statham or some bourne rip-off than bond. I like DC and think he's a great actor, but QOS is pure crap and the worst bond film ever. But to be fair it wasn't craigs fault.

    On topic, and I know I'm repeating myself with this but still, IDRIS ELBRA FTW!!!

    So you really say, what JS and DC bring to the screen is of the same level? Its just, that I never thought, those two would be compared...not attacking your opinion, I am just :-O Even QOS had enough moments, that belonged to the actor and not the action hero, leave alone CR, which won him praise for acting overall.

    Comparing Jason Statham with Daniel Craig is like comparing Asti Gancia with Veuve Clicquot =))

    Daniel Craig is a far superior actor than Jason Statham.

    Just an action hero in QoS huh? Did we watch the same film mate??

    -The talk with Mathis on the plane where Bond is hammered
    -Scenes with Felix in Bolivia
    -Scene with Camille sharing his loss and the ending goodbye with her
    -Telling Camille "you only need one shot"
    -The scene in the opera house where Bond meets Greene and his boys. The scene is chillingly brilliant without any dialogue at all!!!
    -Bond breaks up the meeting at the opera house
    -The denial over Vesper("he's(Yusef) not important, and neither was she")
    -The bloody final scene with Yusef, a scene with such power you don't know what Bond will do, and not to mention the best scene of the film and one of the best of the franchise, CAN I GET A WITNESS?!?!?!?!

    Thanks Marvin. You always have my back. ;)

    Hardy will be an excellent Bond and Christopher Nolan will be an excellent Director for a Bond movie. This will be a dream come true for me if it happens.

    Depends which films you're comparing......

    Statham in Crank >>> Craig as Bond
    Craig in Layer Cake >>> everything Statham
    Craig in Munich >>> everything Statham
    Statham in Expendables >>> Craig as Bond
