Someone posted his picture as a snarky response to my Harry Styles post,; I only pointed out that he, and many others, show that person from a musical background can become a successful actor. I never suggested Justin Timberlake as James Bond.
Back on my word, do tell? I suggested Styles as a dark horse pick; I stand by that. I never recommend Timberlake.
Ahh this is funny :))
I feel grossly underpaid, in that case.
Let's keep this idiot out of the conversation, yes?
That's all fine and dandy and I'm sure mr. Adrian Turner would be delighted to have his name into the mix, but a certain mr. Aidan Turner would perhaps feel left out?
Yes that was my thought too: Remington Steel-era Brosnan wasn't exactly a macho figure. And Styles isn't a million miles off the sort of look of Pattinson.
But he does need to become a really good leading man first, we'll see if he gets there. Seems promising so far.
Above, the very Bond best we've had. Below, good actor but essentially not Bond. He could have been a brutally good KGB adversary of Bond.
We all have opinions on who could and shouldn't play James Bond. However you appear unwilling to allow any other suggestion apart from your own to be put forward.
We encourage healthy debate, but there is a line which you are very close to crossing.
Please be less aggressive in your posts and you will find other members are much more hospitable toward you.
@talos7 is as much a Bond fan as any of us; to call him anything but is somewhat childish. He also prefaced Styles as a dark-horse candidate. I agree with his idea that Styles could be leading man material in the upcoming years, and EoN won't be anointing anyone as the new 007; they will throw a big net when casting starts. And it's not a crazy idea to think that someone like Styles could be a name amongst the first batch of names.
This thread isn't an echo chamber; people have opinions. Stay humble, listen, debate, but dismissing someone like @talos7 (and your follow ups), have been curt and rude.
It isn't a good look, friend.
From SPECTRE, when he calls out Bond at the organization's meeting, there is a two word Blofeld quote that comes to mind.
English may not be your first language, but that doesn't appear to be the problem.
Definitely moving on...
(I'm sorry, this is just too good.)
The only reason, for me, that is valid for ruling him out is his lack of experience. And that is likely to change. I don't know if he wishes to continue acting or not, but he wasn't bad in Dunkirk at all considering he had thrown himself in at the deep end. If he develops leading man capabilities, why not? The photo posted above proves he looks good in a nice suit.
It's not like we've never had a super-masculine version of Bond embrace effeminacy before!
It was for International Women's Day, @General_Graves
The reason I don't want him to be James Bond is about star power and fame. James Bond should be played by someone who can fully become the character and be that character for a whole generation, so having an actor that is hugely famous for something else; like Henry Cavill being Superman, and in this case, Harry Styles being a hugely famous musician. I understand Pierce Brosnan and Roger Moore were known enough before their time as 007, but we're in a different time now. Fame is bigger than it ever was, so to hire someone extremely famous just wouldn't work in my eyes.
I get that. It's a good point! I'd be inclined to agree, now that you've said it.
