    I think next Bond is little bit of surprise to us.

    Apologies if posted before but I watched "Last Christmas" yesterday and noticed this at 35 seconds. "Shtay back" Serendipity?

    I assume you were forced to watch this film by your wife/ Girlfriend etc mate?

    My wife hadn’t noticed it on Sky as yet, so I’ve dodged it so far!

    In a relationship you are not forced, you do it out of love ;)

    Nice to see some other footage from this movie, that my sugestion suport even more. A good exampe for his English voice and the humor. Very good humor and his interaction with her is very good. But of course she was highlight of Terminator 5.

    Part of footage give me this time also a Brosnan vibe.

    Henry Golding is Malaysian, so he’s totally unsuitable for Bond (looks wise) in my opinion.

    I think Sam Claflin is worth a screen test.

    No, I don't think so. That lightweight, TV actor guy?

    I know right! No wonder I like them both haha, I just think (if Christopher was British) he could pull it off better than Kit. Plus Chris is taller. Maybe he could be a future Felix? :)

    Yeah. Felix isn't a bad shout for him though.

    I imagine he could work as a Felix in the vein of Jack Lord but with that Jeffrey Wright edge.

    Aaaah! Jack Lord. That was the last time we had a 'Felix' who looked like an American Bond. Yeah, would be nice to go back to that. Although, as you say Wright has given the character so much edge. So I think the next actor would feel a bit of pressure playing him.

    Quite right, that's not the one.

    It's too bad we only got Billy Magnussen now, and for a different role. He would have really evoked a Jack Lord Felix IMO. I do very much like Wright in the role though.

    Yeah I thought the same; but I'm sure Magnussen will give us those vibes with an extra new layer ;)

    I'm amazed you don't know or haven't seen And Then There Were None: you've been posting of photos of him in it for months. Have you actually seen him in anything?

    No, I’ve only seen him in ‘The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot’ and Poldark. In both I saw Bond potential.

    So hopefully this will just add to that opinion.

    I thought he was superb in And Then There Were None. I should look at some of his other work.
