Have you been smoking something old chap? ;)
You've OBVIOUSLY never heard H Ford's English accent ! Don't feel poorly, though - NO ONE has heard it !
James Bond: Unknown Actor (someone born in the late 80s-early 90s, if a true origin story).
M: Idris Elba
Moneypenny: Daisy Ridley
Q: Tom Holland
May: Felicity Jones
Bill Tanner: Andrew Garfield
Felix Leiter: Timothée Chalamet
Mary Goodnight: Margot Robbie
Auric Goldfinger: Russell Crowe
Ernst Starvo Blofeld: Steve Buscemi
Irma Bunt: Diane Lane
I know I used a lot of Superhero actors and actresses, but they are the craze for now!
That is certainly an ensemble..
Chalamet is of course nothing at all like the Felix Leiter of the books and I think he is too high profile to take a tertiary role like that in the nearish future (same for Holland and Garfield), but I somehow find it a fascinating idea. I am slowly coming to terms that this newer generation of actors, whom I consider to be very boyish are going to be the leading men of the next decade-plus and there is something about Chalamet particularly, that makes me want to see what he would do as a spy and as the kind of embodiment of the US that Leiter sometimes is.
Buscemi as Blofeld is fantastic.
On the other hand, I think Harris is brilliant as Moneypenny but I can imagine they might want to keep 'Penny closer to Bond's age.
Chalamet as Leiter ? But he's so much slighter. Too much of a Gilligan vibe, in terms of "Little Buddy"...
I like the suggestion of Diane Lane. We don’t see her on screen enough anymore.
Why not? It s the same service.
I'd love that, because Naomie is a great actor and a brilliant ambassador for the series but I have a feeling they'll cast a new Moneypenny, if they cast a younger Bond so they're contemporaries.
Given the ending of NTTD, I feel the new era is likely to be a clean slate. If they do recast all the supporting roles I hope they cast more unknowns, that way they don't need to shoehorn in the MI6 gang as much
M: Hugh Bonneville
Moneypenny: Rose Byrne
Q: Rowan Atkinson
I’m not sure who for Tanner, though.
I think it’s possible that my picks are too high-profile, too expensive to play secondary or tertiary roles like these. I don’t know.
Oh, and edit: About Daisy Ridley as Moneypenny - a good pick but I’d prefer to see her as a main Bond girl in a future entry.
Christina Cole is the name of the actress. Good call. Seems like there are numerous strong candidates that could be a new Moneypenny. M and Q are a little harder, especially Q.
M - Olivia Colman (The Favourite, The Crown)
Q - Himesh Patel (Tenet, Yesterday)
Moneypenny - Anya Chalotra (The Witcher)
Bill Tanner - Lennie James (Blade Runner 2049, The Walking Dead)
She would have been. Maybe as May. It seems the Austin Powers hatred has been lifted at EON.
Oh, thank you for your insightful commentary on matter. 🙄
I don’t give a piss about skin color and neither should anyone. I’ve even come around on Bond in that I would be pretty happy with Regé-Jean Page. But I digress, that’s all for another thread here...
