Oh my, I'm reading some articles about who would be the next James Bond, and I've come up with some VERY disturbing rumors. First, let's start with the potential people to be the next Bond:
Ewan McGregor
Colin Farrel
Orlando Bloom
Hugh Jackman

OMG, that is probably THE worst possible candidates for James Bond EVER. Ewan McGregor I respect, but I don't think he looks like a Bond, too "nice guy" look.

I almost barfed at the mention of Colin Farrel and Orlando Bloom, if they cast either of those idiot pretty boys, I will stop watching James Bond...

Hugh Jackman, ok, I have to say, I can't verbally say what's wrong with him, but there's something, I still don't think he would be a good Bond.

Now, with the MOST disturbing rumor of them all, Quinton Tarentino, not sure if he was joking, but he hinted that he would direct one of them. HELL FREAKIN NO! That guy is some hack that rips off other people's movies and calls them his own. The unique movies he made by himself are mildly entertaining, but not really, and they got worse as time progressed.

I mean, come on, any of you who think Hero had ANYTHING to do with him, think again, that movie was made like 5 years ago, all he did was fund for it to be shown in America, and just called himself a "producer." What a joke.

On a happier note, Christian Bale being Batman in the new Batman Begins has gotten me pretty excited. I didn't think Bale had the frame to fit Batman at first, but still liked him as an actor, but I think he's able to build himself up to whatever is needed for the role, so I think it should be pretty good. Who knows, maybe he will do some of his gun katas from Equlibrium, lol. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

None of those actor's are bond material!
Bond was a swarve,very well heeled,charmer of a spy,ewan mcgregor! good actor but no bond
And farrell? no no http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Brosnan was excellent as bond,seems that these younger actors they have picked,are going for the "young and trendy" audiance,because bond film's are not as popular now as they once were.

George Clooney? Oh no, I'm glad he's not in the running either. He's better playing some smartass pretty boy, not a suave super spy.

Honestly I cannot really think of anyone who would be good for the role, but then again, I'm not hired as a casting director now am I?

Anyway, if they are trying to go all "young and hip" then that will mean the death of the series, seriously. It was hard enough to believe someone who seemed so carefree can have the devotion required for the constant training and sacrifice to be some super spy traveling the world trusted with the world's greatest technologies, now we're supposed to believe that not only is the super spy carefree, but also young and inexperienced??

Give me a freakin break.

Ugh, that has to be the worst list of possible candidates, ever.

I agree with your opinions on each possible actor, Demon. Out of the list though, Ewen gets my vote, but I'm afraid that they'll take the edge out of Bond and make him to charming if he's to play James.

As we all know, Sean Connery pulled of Bond the best, but Pierce is probably the best one nowadays who is able to play him.


BTW: Thank God they didn't put Jude Law on the list

BTW, I think bond actors should be over 35, since thats how its always been.

And in the books bond isnt really young...

Not to mention they will not just recruit someone straight out of college to be trusted with the world's most dangerous tools and weapons, most likely anyone who got that position would have had a very extensive military, law enforcement, and/or government agency experience in the past before they become a "00" agent.

Looking at that list hugh grant can't play 007 cos he always plays an bumbling idiot.
Clooney is too wooden.
I think Ralph Fiennes could be great as bond.

Ralph Fiennes could play a good 007. I remember the first time I saw him as the camp commander in SL. He is a good actor IMO.

RMC, look at the date on that article you posted on Bloom, it's from July, more recent articles all say it is still up in the air and Bloom is farther down the list.

Mel Gibson is a horrible choice, I think his crowning role is in Lethal Weapon, or even Conspiracy Theory, he doesn't look right "smooth," he's better as someone who isn't quite insane, but not quite sane either, lol.

I respect Ralph Fiennes, but I don't see him in a role that is so cool-headed in the middle of turmoil, he seems more right for a more "normal person" role that panics a bit when the time comes.

Brosnan did the smooth and cool-headedness very well, but his real acting ability is a bit shady in the other areas.

Were so used to thinking of Bond as smooth these days, but whenever I go back and watch Sean Connery I'm surprised at how. . . hmm. . . edgy he is (not sure if I could come up with a better word). Not that he isn't smooth as well (even if you consider being smooth and edgy at the same time a bit paradoxical), but the more recent bonds strike me as a bit too dapper when compared to Sean Connery (which isn't to say that I dislike Peirce Brosnan he's definitely second best).

I think the of the choices listed that Hugh Jackman has the potential pull off a very good Bond, but I don't think he'd neccesarily live up to it. Ironically, he only thing I found entertaining in that Van Helsing movie he did was the scene with the Secret Vatican underground Q room in St. Peter's basilica. Not only was the idea amusing, in an absurd sort of way, but since I went late at night to make fun of the movie I found myself saying "Now pay attention 007!"

I would think that Russel Crowe could make a good Bond as well, were he not so physically imposing. Not all of his movies are gladiator. He did pretty well in A Beautiful Mind and Master and Commander come to mind as movies where he wasn't primarily involved in personally beating the **** out of people. (Yes, I realize there was a battle at the end of M and C where they take over another ship, but he wasn't portrayed as being 100 times better at sword fighting than anyone else.)

I remember that when PB was listed to play the next Bond, alot of people said he could not do it. Too many ties to Remington Steele.

But he did a good job in all his JB movies.

I think any actor that grew up watching JB, would be able, witht he right producer, do a good job.

AS LONG AS IT ISN'T THE DUDE PLAYING JASON BOURNE!!!!!

The only one I agree with is Hugh Jackman. The rest would not only be incorrect in that role, but I don't like them.

My favs were Pierce and Roger.

The person needs suave. And crowe is so far removed from Suave it ain't a joke to bring up his name.

Besides, nothing wrong with going for a no-name. So I think they should cast someone good, not someone famous.

Demon_Mustang
01-10-2005, 01:14 AM
Every Bond actor brought a different side of Bond to the screen. Roger Moore had some ridiculous looking facial expressions but his Bond movies are actually not bad at all.

Pierce Brosnan isn't really a good actor, but he looks right for the Bond role, and he seems to be able to pull off the calm in a violent situation thing good, but that's about it, but I still am relieved to hear that he might do one more and I don't have to see some young gun pretending to be Bond in an actual licensed Bond movie...

It was so sad when Desmond Llewelyn died. He was going to retire from the franchise anyhow, but he was great as Q. I think he was my favorite character because other than the first movie, he was the only character to remain constant throughout all of the Bond films. Also, nobody does the line "now pay attention 007" better than him! He had that look of a wise old man you have to listen to that was still coherant enough to scold James Bond whenever he plays with the gadgets Q hasn't shown him yet, lol.

"Don't touch that!! That's my lunch!"

I don't know about that! I can do a spot on Q impression! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif However, there's a world of difference between imitating his speech and being the original! At least John Cleese wasn't a bad pick to succeed him.

Demon_Mustang
01-10-2005, 11:52 AM
Oh, not at all, John Cleese is brilliant, but the original seemed better at scolding Bond than Cleese, Cleese just makes me laugh because he's a funny guy.

There's a fairly new Bond game, not the new wannabe Goldeneye, but the one before called Everything or Nothing that is in 3rd person view, they have all the real actors do the voice-overs including John Cleese. In the driving levels, if you crash a lot, Cleese will come over the comm radio and say "Bond, I've included a clever device in your Aston Martin that should aide you in maneuvering, it's called the 'steering wheel' try using it!" I know he didn't write that but it just sounds so funny when Cleese is saying it, lol. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
