Hmm was a while since i saw "Road to Perdition"...who did he play in it?

But lol, did you guys see the poll for the next Bond car? First some classy ones...Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti and Jaguar....and lastly some blue fugly clown car! Rinspeed Splash...

James Bond cant drive a car named Rinspeed Splash! Whats next, a velvet suit in Austin Powers style?

Sean Connery was/is a hottie.....Yet Pierce Brosnan Bond wise was every bit on par if not exceeded Connery...(however if he had played it when they first offered it to him he was still too young...Bond IMLTHO needs to be late 40's to mid 50's)......The PC Bond, Timothy Dalton, was a joke....A "mans man" with class is hot, not some simpering worm.

The new guy in Road to Perdition played the weasely son of the Mob boss that killed the leads family......Can't say he quite fits the bill of Bond for me, yet couldn't really pick a replacement for Brosnan *sigh-dizzy-swoon* as I don't know many British actors.

Personally i think Jeremy Irons would make a pretty cool Bond. (Though i must say i really stopped watching Bond movies after the Roger Moore era). Imo Connery was the best Bond.

Yeah this guy was in the "hit" "Britflick" Layercake which is Britians most stylish (only because the photograpy and subject matter are similar to a Taritino film)gangster/drugsfilm to date. It's garbage, in fact most british films are pale carbon copies of hollywood staples we're all tired of anyhow. Bond is the ultimate anti-climax film series, they never fail to dissapoint. Even if they do start showing full frontal nudity and simulated coitus I'm personally never gonna bother with bond movie again.

I think in the twenty first century we might even consider an ethnic actor for the role as Bondo, after all Britian is a multicultural society.

Yeah Im with you.... Connery was the James Bond..... Brosnan was good too.. a close second.... Roger moore was The Saint.. David Niven was a better Bond than Dalton.... Lazenby..... enhh.. to me the draw on that one was Mrs. Bond (err.. Mrs. Peele) anyway.

Bad choice in my opinion. He just doesn't have the look, I don't think.

Better choice would have been Clive Owen.

I think Daniel Craig was far and away the best choice for the new Bond. The only person that could of been close in my money was Christian Bale, but apparently he chose to put himself out of contention.

Clive Owen, as big a fan of his as I am, is just too polished to play Bond well. The other option was reportedly Hugh Jackman, who is probably a little too laidback and laddish for the role.

The original Bond of both the films and the books was a really interesting charater. A man under immense pressure, he was a hardened womaniser, an alcoholic and borderline psychotic. He was a truly HARD man, physically tought, mentally prepared to do almost anything for 'the mission', but also smart enough to do things on his own terms and he had a real personality, not just a serise of emotional motions to go through.

I hope they bring Bond back towards the 'real world'; less gadgets and CGI, more grit and darkness. We need heros who can get muddy and a little tortured, not some invisible car-driving, gun them down in my tuxeedo, action hero.

Technically, four different people played Bond in that film.
David Niven, Peter Sellers, Terence Cooper and Daliah Lavi.
But the primary (actual) role of Bond was played by Niven.

Ewan being Bond would be a cool idea if the movies were "prequeled". You know, having to see how James Bond became to be. Being a working man of a spy before becoming the savior of the West.

Other than that, Connery is and always will be the best. Brosnan was a good Bond, IMO. But, the movies he was in kind of lost me.

I stand by what I've said Layercake isn't a very good film in my opinion and Bond films don't hold the appeal for the audience that they once did. Cool Britannia is pop propoganda pure and simple. Who I am is of no relevance in this argument but I think what you were implying was that I was not fit to have an opinion on Mr. Craig because I'm not famous. Well just because he's somebody doesn't mean I'm not somebody else o.k. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Bond is an tired old franchise that won't go out gracefully until we all face up to the fact that the only thing that ever made bond cool was Sean Connery, Bond isn't cool Connery is!

You make a good point.
What would you think of an "older" Bruce Willis as Bond?
Ya, I know he's American...but did you know that the first Bond to appear on film was an American?
Check the link. Scroll down to the second from last.

These are the only recent British hit films not centered around crime/drugs. Not a terribly impressive list is it? I won't even mention Dog Soldiers. No, Britian can do alot of things well like rowing and ferret racing but cinematic geniuses? Uh-uh the survey says not.

On the other hand beuf_Ninja...British films centered around violance/crime such as Bond or Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels...have far more class than their American counterparts, and British actors are generally the best in the world. And it was us who invented half of the films made by hollywood.....for example...Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter,and Narnia (Soon to be released).
