    I still think he'd be great. Could be a dark horse :)

    Why do you like him so much? What are you seeing that we can't? Happy to have my mind changed...

    I think I've finally found the candidate we can all agree on:

    Well, for one, I think he's a good actor with lots of potential. Has a look that would be a "return-to-form" in terms of the classic James Bond look, while remaining relevant with more modern interests in terms of looks. I think he'd also be a good balance of the more classy, traditional characteristics and more rugged, grittiness that was introduced in later approaches. He's at a good age to develop some good projects before possible casting and is in a good position within his career to take on the role if he and the producers wanted him enough.

    A South American? This is a joke right? Narcos is great, but this guy is more Sanchez than Bond.

    Rugged and gritty? He looks geeky and not much of a ‘leading man.’ IMO.

    I agree with you here. In fairness to @Denbigh however, I have not watched him aside from in clips. He also makes a good point in that because of his age, height and general size at least, he probably deserves to be tested.

    I was impress after watching The Capture https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00085sx , he plays a tough guy quite well.

    Yes, it’s a joke, lol... I figured it would be obvious. Think there’s room to loosen up! This isn’t too serious!

    I don’t want a young Roger Moore though, nor do I want a young Sean, George, Timothy, Pierce or Daniel. I want a new James Bond all his own but that still feels like the character. And for me, Callum ain’t it.

    I can’t tell nowadays! Ha ha. I’ve seem Tom Holland touted on FB this week. He’s the average height of an Ewok!! But the posts were dead serious.

    But the difference is that Roger is handsome....he’s not an ‘Everyman.’

    What about Benedict Cumberbatch? I used to think that Henry Cavil might be a good choice (I liked him in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), but his character in Mission Impossible Fallout really got on my nerves. I kept wanting to slap him upside of his head.

    Yeah I don’t think he’s geeky at all; I wasn’t blown away by his star power in The Capture but he’s not unsuited to Bond.

    I think he’d make a good Lord Brett Sinclair; I could watch that!

    Good actor. But a bit ‘odd looking’ rather than Bond material IMO. A bit like Callum Turner....but a better actor.

    This is a wider shot of one that I posted earlier. He’s definitely in my top 3 and warrants a screentest.

    He knows that he will never be Bond but the publicity is

    Controversial opinion: Callum Turner is actually not a bad choice, he looks a bit young at the moment, but give it another five years.


    We keep forgetting - Bond SHOULD be a svelte Englishman with a pleasant outward demeanour, who blends in at parties.

    I guess that rules out Irishman Aidan Turner then.
