Good point. If the same trend continues, the current whitehall brigade will be in office for a good long time.
Perhaps both are.
I can imagine only M remaining actually. Moneypenny I think is brilliant, but I can see them going for someone closer in age to the new Bond perhaps? Not that she looks old at all. And again I'd be more than happy to keep Whishaw, but he's a very successful actor and I could imagine him moving on, although that's not to say that he will.
Yes I think it's a different character- in CR she has a different dress sense, much more vampy than the Brosnan M dressed; and she's notably not an alcoholic like the previous M either! :D She's a bit less mumsy.
These ads are really badly directed. The joke just dies.
I like the fact that there's never been a completely fresh slate for the MI6 team and that there's always been at least one actor carrying over to a new Bond and providing a link to the past (albeit loosely in Judi Dench's case). There probably will be a new M, Moneypenny or Q (or all three) at some point in the next Bond actor's era but I'm perfectly happy with Fiennes, Harris and Whishaw carrying over before that happens. 🙂
Get Tobias Menzies as M. We'll go crazy discussing whether this is a new character or Villiers got a thoroughly undeserved promotion.
I hope you’re joking!
Nay ! I think it is quite amusing. Bond/Craig getting older; needs glasses to read. Not pulling out a weapon, just reading glasses. Self-deprecating humor.
That's not a bad idea - Tobias Menzies has aged really well to play an M-type figure.
Ralph Fiennes should return as M too.
Maybe, a little. ;)
As written it's a nice joke, yes, but the ads themselves have no comic timing or moment at which you laugh. The direction kills the gag. The one with him and the pen uses awful candid shots of people on a street rather than shooting actors reacting. They're kind of anti-comedy.
Something tells me that these are rough cuts. Have they actually aired anywhere? Nevertheless, I like the approach: they all seem to be part of a series "Behind the Scenes" in which Craig is waiting around on set. The bar scene is full of set decorators and photographers. Again: nice concept. But incomplete, maybe.
I get the feeling they're not for broadcast, just the web. But to be honest I thought the full length Heineken ad these were from didn't really work either. Not a terrible idea on the page, but just weirdly made. I don't know who the director was but I thought they did a not-great job.
Thats good to hear. If he wants to keep playing the producers should keep him on.
For now only, from Universal, F9, Old and Nobody.
