As for modern actors who would suit the role... I honestly don't know. It's a very hard role to cast I think and I agree they chose well with Craig. And Brosnan. And Connery :)
Regarding the topic, there's no way Craig would have been cast in the role and that would have been a bad thing indeed. Worse than Pierce, we'd have something horrendous like Hugh Jackman or Brad Pitt, a very bad accent, terrible Bourne-Lite scripts and the death of the franchise.
And I think Nick Clegg will be on it too - once he loses his seat at the next General Election!
I actually think Brosnan was pretty much flawless and it was the writing that let him down.
Why couldn't it all have been as good (or better) than GoldenEye?
Couldn't say it better myself, agreed!
That's the way it seems to go around here sadly. Doesn't matter what the thread is, somebody wll find a way to bring up Brosnan and citicise him.
Twiharders would flood the poll and we'd get robert pattinson.
I know people have said Oligarch might be a troll but this is absolutely spot on.
Anything where the general public get a say is an awful idea (and that includes general elections).
An actor needs to be chosen on screen tests, attitude and acting chops not having a mugshot printed in the Sun and letting the cretins call a premium rate phoneline to vote.
"Oh, I like that one because he has cool hair."
"That one can apparently say the alphabet BACKWARDS. Yeah, you heard me right: BACKWARDS. If that isn't worth of my vote, I don't know what is."
"Wait...you mean to tell me that THIS guy has the most followers on Facebook? Alright, vote casted!"
"Listen, I thought my wife was joking when she said this guy could balance 15 champagne glasses on top of each other, but he really can! Quick, get me to the polls! I can't vote for this bloke fast enough!!!"
Better to just say "here's the new actor who's playing Bond" and let the public decide as one. There will always be people who don't approve and that will never change.
Hmm, Clarkson could work......
He could at least do all his own driving stunts in the Aston! ;)
You are spot on and speaks for most of us.
Actually, I get the sense that we might end up with Brosnan himself again.
A. Daniel Radcliffe
B. Sam Worthington
C. Clive Owen
D. Ryan Gosling
Of course Sam Worthington will win, because Pierce Brosnan, George Lazenby, James Cameron and Fox wil suport him. Imagine how much free promotion the movie wil get with another Australian wil play Bond.
What if Eon Productions did an extensive opinion poll to cast the next James Bond directer, that will be a nightmare. If not Christopher Nolan, David Fincher or much worse we get QT.
With CR this already happend already by fans and media who liked GE and the wish people whant to see Campbell back we get him back for CR. Also it be the media in specialy who's fault it be Pierce Brosnan a go a way. I already see the same happend now with people whant Sam Mendes back.
No. Please, no.
I think it could work. Sure, it could be a total disaster too :D but I think that would be very unlikely because the list would feature 'credible' type names. The publicity from this public online vote would be incredible. The new Bond film with the new actor would open to crazy big box office, I reckon, helped by the public vote.
The public is not exactly cutting-edge when it comes to picking actors.
