    Not a single vote for Nelson, Niven, Brosnan or Craig. With the smallest victory, George Lazenby has hereby been cast as the new George of the Jungle.
    Another casting question:

    Which Bond would you rather see as Sherlock Holmes?

    (Yes, I know Moore did play him)

    Barry Nelson-
    Sean Connery-
    David Niven-
    George Lazenby-
    Roger Moore-
    Timothy Dalton-
    Pierce Brosnan-
    Daniel Craig-

    Timothy Dalton!

    Even though, before he did The Spy Who Loved Me, Roger Moore did star as Holmes alongside Patrick Macnee as Watson. He played the character faithfully but... I still couldn't see him suitable for the role.

    Pierce Brosnan parodied Sherlock Holmes by actually wearing the disguise at a masquerade ball in an episode of Remington Steele.

    Keep voting. Hello anyone? And don t make me angry, I may leave the forum.
    Haha.

    Craig for me. This is the only time when his blonde hair & somewhat unrefined looks won't be a problem.

    Barry Nelson-
    Sean Connery-1
    David Niven-
    George Lazenby-2
    Roger Moore- 1
    Timothy Dalton- 1
    Pierce Brosnan-
    Daniel Craig-1

    You are on the wrong page, @bondjames, but thanks for making Brosnan the only living Bond unwanted as Tarzan.

    Sorry about that @Thunderfinger. This thread changes topic so fast it's difficult to keep up.

    Regarding Holmes, it's a tough call between Moore or Niven. Both seem the most intelligent Bonds. I'll give it to Niven....just.

    Barry Nelson-
    Sean Connery-
    David Niven-1
    George Lazenby-
    Roger Moore-
    Timothy Dalton-1

    Don't know why that is. (I'm being sincere for one as well!)

    I'm not to familiar with Niven myself, and I've never seen CR 67.

    You shouldn't watch CR 67, but there are a plethora of films to see Niven shine. If you want a decent action flick, search out The Sea Wolves, in which he stars alongside Sir Rog.

    David Niven is the only Bond to get a mention from Fleming in one of his novels.

    When Kissy Suzuki (the Japanese Greta Garbo), the mother of Bond s child, was a Hollywood actress, the only one who was a gentleman towards her (no other names mentioned, unfortunately) was David Niven. All the others wanted to screw her, the poor child.

    She named a cormorant who helped her catch fish after him, she had raised him since he was a baby.
