    I think I’ll actually be about the same age as the next actor to play Bond, so that’ll be a first for me. Unless they want someone in their late 20s or early 30s (I’m in my mid-30s), then I’ll be older than Bond too. He could be about 2 or 3 years younger I suppose. That would mean the next Bond will have been born in the early 90’s! :-O

    I'm guessing the next actor to play the part will likely be in his mid 30s. Possibly 35-37 years old.

    The next Bond actor will be on the minimum wage. Come on, Babs needs something to herself!

    If I had a three-wheeled 1886 Benz, I would personally buy the necessary fuel at the nearest pharmacy as Berta Benz did. But since I don't have one, I'll settle for more common vehicles.

    A car like that would drive you round the Benz.

    The LAST Bond actor — Daniel Craig — is younger than me.

    The next Bond actor will be younger than us and it's going to alienate the higher age-group of fans.

    Well, not younger than you.

    Since it'll be you.

    It will be the first time a new Bond actor is younger than me also, DC is just under 7 years older than myself. When I checked online I did not realise he was 55 I thought he was younger, saying that NTTD did take an age to be released.

    I'm 22 so I'm still safe. Although this time it'll be more like older brother than father or grandfather.

    Craig is several years younger than me. I guess it did give me a different viewpoint right from the start. It’s probably why he seems the least Bondlike to me, for the first time I thought of a Bond actor as being a relative youngster.

    Secretly I'm hoping someone better turns up.

    The next Bond actor will also be the first to serve under a king. It's wild to think that Elizabeth was not just alive for all the Bonds, but was Queen during that same time, even for his initial literary creation.

    Truly incredible when you think of it. She was such a constant in society and how she was able to navigate the changes in society and the world. A remarkable lady the likes of which we may never see again.

    Sounds like Tina Turner...

    The next Bond is going to be Timothée Chalamet, so yeah!
    Save this (and other older posts I made about Tim) for when the announcement is made.
    That's going to be a pretty interesting moment following production on the next one.

    I already have all your posts concerning this actor printed out and ready to be framed in 24 carat gold when the inevitable announcement is made.

    Had to look him up - never heard of him. American of French origin? Fat chance. Also, the way he looks on recent pictures makes me think he should age another ten years or so before anyone could think of having him as Bond. And I, at least, do not wish to wait another ten years for the next Bond movie.

    What's alarming is I was born in 94 and it's entirely possible the next Bond is younger than ME. Genuinely did not expect that in 2016.

    Timothee Chalamet as Bond would be one of the strangest pieces of miscasting I’ve ever seen… and keep in mind this was an actor recently cast as Willy Wonka (for reasons apart from his fame I’m not entirely sure of).

    I had to get over this when Hollywood got obsessed with young adult movies.

    As I said, I am older than Craig, but I know of at least two members that are older than Pierce and Dalton.

    At the slow rate these films are coming, I’m guessing the next one will be the last one older than I am.
