I agree. Travolta excels at playing bad guys (Broken Arrow, Swordfish, Face Off ) but I don't think he would be right in a Bond film.
A certain type of badguy, yes. Not the Bond villain type. And I agree with doubleoego: acting wise he is not quite good enough. Not in the leagues of Javier Bardem, Robert Shaw or Christopher Lee.
While I do agree with your points, I do have one thing: I wasn't around in 1985, but I imagine people probably felt the same way when Walken was cast as Max Zorin.
Walken is kind of distracting as Zorin, when I watch the movie anyway, but maybe he was not so much back in 85.
Funny I was going to make exactly the same point myself, but you did it for me, so thanks.
I find the idea of Travolta playing a Bond villain more unlikely after SF. My bet is they will go for a far better actor.
Too big a name, too small an actor.
Craig would just knock him out....!
