Who is the Best 007?
 
I'm sure this has been done numerous times in the past but I thought I make another one. When it comes to the James Bond films, which actor is your personal favorite?

I'm sure a lot of you have seen at least one Bond film over the years. I would have to say my favorite actor to play the role is Pierce Brosnan, since he was Bond at the time I grew up. What about you guys?

Has to be Connery doesn't it. Sure some of the others are very good in the role.

Connery defined it, no one since has had quite the same impact.

as much as i love Connery its hard for me to choose one over the others.

Connery defined the role, and as a Scot it's the law that I have to say him anyway.

But Craig is my equal favourite, at least.

Despite some of his movies being embarrassing, I still like Roger Moore the best, the right balance between dark/serious and light/fun without feeling (like Brosnan often did) like a mix.

Dalton
Craig
Moore
Brosnan
Lazenby
Connery

Yes that's right, SC is my least favourite 007!

Also Tom Baker is not the best Dr Who...

I think these polls would be better if everyone picked their top three, I think it would give a better spread of how people really think and Connery would probably still win...

I grew up in the late 90s so Brosnan is my Bond.

Where the hell are Peter Sellers, Woody Allen and Barry Nelson?

Connery.
But I think Dalton had potential, and Brosnan could have been the best, but both were let down by crappy scripts.

Sean Connery, is this even a question?

I'm a 90s kid as well but I actually do prefer Connery. He is more iconic to me (speaking as a very casual Bond viewer).

I voted for Tim Dalton.
Only because I thought he'd get no votes.
I'd have gone with Niven as that was who Fleming wanted, but he never appeared in an official Bond film.
But for me, it is a tie, Connery/Dalton

Connery.
