    Having seen him play serious parts very well, I always saw a very good M in him.

    Excellent choice. That would have been my suggestion as well.

    Vincent Price as Mr Osato , Fonda as Anya Amasova , Stephen Fry as Q because he played Smithers in Alex Rider's Stormbreaker!

    I could see Stephen Fry as Le Chiffre. In the novel he was obese, albeit short. He does not have quite the right face for Blofeld, although his physique could be similar to the one of Blofeld in TB. And he has the right nose. My main problem with Fry is that I have difficulties to see him as a really nasty, evil character. But if Hugh Laurie can be a dry, sarcastic (cynical?) character, I am sure Fry can play someone nasty.

    He was like that in CR'67.

    I'm sure neither Fry nor Laurie were part of CR67, hully.

    Vincent Price would make for an outstanding Drax, especially in a Moonraker adaptation starring Sean Connery.

    Fonda would work well as either Domino or Tiffany Case, either work for me.

    I'll admit, I haven't seen Fry in a whole lot, but I think he'd make an ideal M or Q.

    Yeah, I would say Fonda would have made a great Domino.

    As for Fry, I'm bordering M or Q, but with his comedic persona in 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,' I would go with Q.

    I so enjoy Stephen Fry.
    I'd like to see him as:

    1) M
    2) the prime minister (in any Bond film, and given more lines obviously)
    3) Drax (another actor, besides Vincent Price, who could say those lines really well!)
    4) Q
    5) Mallory (Fiennes is perfect, I'm just saying Fry would be great in that role, too)


    #1 choice for me would be M (or head of Quantum, which hasn't happened yet - so that doesn't count in this contest). I think Fry can play evil, sarcastic, smarmy, twisted if he wanted to. Or smart, dedicated, patriotic, no fool. He is just so talented.

    Keep casting Price, Fonda and Fry, folks. Meanwhile, I'll add a fresh name to the list. ;-)

    Bond or a future villain if a past one maybe Gustav Graves.

    Here's someone I would still like to see cast in a Bond film someday, but not as Bond himself (at this point). ;-)

    So far, I'd suggest Tanner, Greene or, and this might be controversial - I don't know - Q.

    Ben Whisaw will be around for the next 50 years and will be around longer than Desmond so I can't see anyone else replacing him.

    A numerous amount of villains come to mind, but the biggest thing that sprouts up is the thought of him playing a future villain. Sounds perfect to me.

    Oooh, he well might be in a future Bond film. Can't get much hotter a career for him than right now. I like him a lot.

    For a Bond film from the past ....

    I'd cast him as:

    1) Gustav Graves (young enough, smarmy, cocky, etc.) Benedict could be sparkling in that role.

    2) Scaramanga - yes! Puts a different spin on it, doesn't it? But I think he'd be brilliant.

    3) Elliott Carver. Hmmm.

    I'd even say he could even play M. A very versatile actor.

    I wouldn't cast Benedict Cumberbatch as Gustav Graves, it would be an insult to his talent. My idea, out of the box: Philip Masters from the short story QOS, in a play based on it. Okay, not a Bond film, but a Bond role anyway.

    I get a Draco vibe from Price (though I am not familiar with his work), Fonda maybe a Jill Masterson or Domino.

    As for Fry, I'd cast him as maybe a Greg Beam. I would love to see Stephen do a really nasty and evil man like we are presented with in QoS, and I think he could pull it off rather well.

    And for Benedict, who is one of my favorite actors of our modern time, I will go all the way: James Bond. Everything from his voice to his style and the way he composes himself exemplify a Bondian presence to me. He could play anything and everything to full effect in my eyes, so it could be rather opened ended as to what other roles he could take on. What an actor...

    Please stick to the suggested actors. Other threads are open to random suggestions.

    It is indeed a blast Dimster.
    Stephen Fry, such a talent. He can be villainous or comedic.
    I could envisage a Q / R TWINE-DAD character for him. Even a Robinson or Tanner role in the Brosnan films.
    Possibly an Elliot Carver or Gustav Graves villain. Dominc Greene? Greogry Beam?
    I feel with some of these I'm doing him a disservice.

    Cumberbatch as Dr. Julius No.

    Stephen Fry could be a great Goldfinger. Also If they went with the original idea of Goldeneye; where 006 is a mentor figure, Stephen Fry would be brilliant in that sort of role as well. That being said, Stephen Fry is brilliant in anything he dose.
