    Mr. Harry Styles is not James Bond actor. He may turn to become good actor. But Mr. Adrian Turner is much more good choice for James Bond. Two three four five years. It not matter.
    So many fans of James Bond so many have no good idea who best to be new James Bond. So many bad idea.

    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?

    Just as me think before. You cannot make good suggestion. So you have to hide from silly idea.

    The fun is not good, when silly actor are suggesting for James Bond.

    At this point, evaluating and, or, suggesting potential Bonds is a wide open topic; some suggestions are very traditional and some are outside of the box; to use a colloquial, we're "spitballing". Suggesting that someone is 'not a fan' because you don't agree with a particular suggestion is strangely myopic.
  • I have gotten bored of your silly posting. You have ideas. But James Bond have always been real man. Even the not so good James Bond.
    I wish you peace and no harm. I do not agree with silly suggestion. We will disagree to agree. Yes

    Okay enough of this bickering for no reason. @General_Graves as a new member I would suggest that you are a little more courteous to other members.
    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.
    Carry on.

    @General_Graves , please calm down. This is a thread asking for suggestions on who could/should play Bond.
    @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 don't think Harry Styles will ever be considered, but I hope we're not ruling him out (or calling him an idiot) because he sometimes dresses effeminately...

    Hahahaha. talos7 you have not seen post by moderator me thinks. They have asked for more nice posting. You are also being rude to new member. Also is not fault of mine that English is not first language for me. I find offend that you are being not nice to a lady also. My understanding of English not always so good. It is not fault of mine because this is so.

    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
  • I am not seeing this before. I do not like for men to dress like woman. Mr. Daniel Craig be strong man. As female I like he trying to make women day more noticed. He not need dress like woman to be good to woman’s day.

    Yeah, I understand that, and I also don't think he was bad in Dunkirk. I'm really looking forward to Don't Worry Darling with him and Florence Pugh...

    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.

    I totally agree with this view! I would say the only possible exception would be if Eon drastically changed its format and exclusively produced standalones with a new actor each time. Although it's not really what I would like to see, I think this format would further favor a famous actor in the role.

    It is interesting how much handwringing there is about the new Bond and how long they can stay in the role and how the franchise will be set-up for the future and so on.
    Isn't James Bond the character where casting continuity is the most muddled and all over the place anyway? Sure, people try to put a unifying theory onto the whole thing and I think all Bond fans have spent at least some time thinking about their stance on stuff like continuity and codename theory and all of that, but where other franchises have to invent parellel universes or keep the old actor in the franchise while the new actor just takes up their mantle or whatever, Bond just is. Whoever it says at the beginning of the credits "as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 in" is James Bond. All of them are Bond. They are seperate and connected at the same time.

    So why not do just one movie with Tom Hardy? Why not have Nic Hoult do a couple, go away to do something else while Robert Pattinson does one if he has a shooting window available and then have Hoult come back? Hell, have Craig come back in 10 if he feels like it. Connery played Bond in three decades, Craig could get to four. He'll always look like he's 39 anyway.
    Trust me, it's not too complicated for the audience: It's a Bond film. The handsome man in the film is James Bond and this is one of his stories.

    (Maybe I should put this in the controversial opinions thread...)

    Edit: And this is not even mainly directed at fans. Eon: Just get to producing movies. I assume you get about 12 spec scripts and 15 product placement deal offers per week. There is bound to be enough material to get a film through the door every 30 months.

    Can you imagine how much worse it must be at Eon when they discuss who they want for the next James Bond?

    No doubt it’s quite a process; the stakes are huge.

    I think being well known for another big role like Batman is to be avoided, but being a well known actor isn't terrible. Styles at the moment is a famous singer but he's not a famous movie star, I wouldn't object to that level of fame.

    I think the fact Styles has acted in a big Nolan film gives him at least a little acting credibility. He's not a bad height either, for those of us that care about such things. As several people have said, a number of singers have succeeded in crossing over to acting, though I think he'd need a critically acclaimed performance to be in with a shot.

    I'm not actually familiar with One Direction (though I've heard of them, of course). My first thought when talos7 suggested him was that he looked a bit like the lead from Pennyworth, who someone here suggested for Bond a few months ago.
