    Does no one like the idea of Tom Hardy as Bond? Since Christopher Nolan is likely to helm Bond 25 and/or 26, I think it might be likely as they are long time collaborators.
    Henry Cavill could work too. He came very close to playing Bond in Casino Royals, but the producers thought he was too young.

    Personally I think Craig's 5'11" (or 7 bricks, I dont now how the English measure height, is it like weight?) is about as short as I'm willing to go.
    Tom is even shorter than Daniel...

    Oh now, I think the imperial system is absurd and wish the US would ditch it, but when I first heard someone say "he weighs 6 stone" I laughed.

    Jamie Dornan seems very bland to me. Never understood his choice for Grades. He just doesnt have the look IMO. Very average. Of all the candidates here, this Rupert guy is the only one, who appeals to me. But I agree with those, who say the name is not on the table yet.

    To me Dornan has an insane look in his eyes; he looks more like a convict than 007

    I think they all are in EONs list (Cullen, Friend, Dornan)...
    O mighty producer @SJK91, do you have any opinion on Matthew Lewis/Oliver Jackson-Cohen?
    Lewis is little too young, Jackson-Cohen is good pick.

    Alright, time to put my fake-producer hat on (TRANSLATION - My ten cents - long post coming up):

    Jamie Dornan is the right age, I suppose, but something tells me that 50 Shades is going to be a critical disaster, and he and his career will be dragged down with it - the trailers look downright miserable. Something about his look also bugs me.

    Someone had mentioned Jai Courtney some pages back. I really don't mean to be rude, but my God, I hope he never even steps foot within five miles of a Bond set. Same goes for Sam Worthington, perhaps even more so.

    Robert Pattinson - Unless he is somehow magically able to shed that Twilight image and become a consistently talented actor, he's toast.

    Michael Fassbender - A good actor and I think has a good look for Bond, but he might be a bit too old.

    Benedict Cumberbatch - Great actor, not convinced on his look. Already the face of Sherlock (which he is marvelous on). Can't praise his ability as an actor enough, I just don't think he has the look.

    Tom Hardy - great actor, no doubt. Too short I'm afraid. Might also be a little too old by the time Craig steps down, believe it or not. (Same age as Fassbender)

    Damien Lewis - another good actor. Too old by the time Craig steps down (only 3 years younger than Craig) and not 'handsome' enough.

    Rupert Friend - A name I have heard of, but am not familiar with any of his work. Right look and right age though.

    Charlie Hunnam - Didn't know this guy was English. Would carry the "Craig blonde" look. I'm not terribly familiar with his work, though I hear he's very good on the TV show, Sons of Anarchy.

    Henry Cavill - He'll have Superman for awhile, I'd say that rules him out. Unconvinced on his acting talent.

    Tom Cullen - He looks older than he is which is a good thing - certainly has a great look for Bond. Would be the right age when Craig steps down. I'm not familiar with his acting work, though.

    Aaron Taylor Johnson - VERY young and looks it, perhaps too young when Craig steps down. I'm not terribly convinced he's that good of an actor either. Dreadful in Godzilla (script did him no favors), and I'm very conflicted about Kick-Ass. But decent in Anna Karenina.

    Nicholas Hoult - Like Johnson, I think too young for now. I think he's got the right look, perhaps a little effeminate but that might change as he gets older. A better actor than Johnson, IMO.

    Sam Claflin - Looks very young, and something about his look is a little...goofy? I also think he's a little stiff in Hunger Games.

    Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, Andrew Lincoln, Richard Armitage, Jon Hamm - Too old.

    And then there's Idris Elba. He certainly is a talented actor and I honestly think he would make a good Bond, all the controversy aside. But I think he's going to be too old. Looks good for his age, though.

    I hope I didn't offend anyone. Please feel free to tell me why I'm wrong!
    Cullen is OK actor, (DOWNTON ABBEY).

    I started visiting this topic after I watched "The Guest", thought that Dan Stevens would be mentioned all over the place...
    My money is on him. I think he has all the right tools and will be the right age when Dan hangs up the holster.

    Dan Stevens is an interesting idea. only seen him in Downton where he plays the stiff upper class numpty, but that's called acting. would like to see him in something else.

    I've seen Dan Stevens' name popping in various places a Bond contender. I've never seen him in anything but his look for the role is better than most of the others I've seen; To me he has a more refined Craig look.
  • Posts: 11,425
    he needs to age a bit.

    Guys, just watch "The Guest" and you'll see what I'm talking about. He would still need to add some muscle but I really think he's the strongest candidate.
    He's also good in "A Walk Among the Tombstones", but totally different kind of performance then in "Guest".

    Indeed, one to watch.
  • edited January 2015 Posts: 11,425
    He hand't even occured to me until today but he's actually the first actor I've heard suggested that actually sounds plausible. Fassbender would be excellent of course, but he'll probably be too old by the time Dan steps down. Fassbender would be bring a touch of Connery-esque steelyness/sadism.

    I agree about Fassbender, he is perfect for the role but age and other commitments will probably keep him out of running.
  • talos7talos7 New Orleans
    Posts: 8,111
    In an age where actors frequently look younger than their years, Fassbender actually looks older. He has a more weathered, mature look that actually would have made him perfect now.

    Yeah, he is too famous & old when Craig leaves...
