Favorite Bond actor
 
This has probably been done before, but I haven't seen it lately. I'd considered doing this as a Hurt/Heal for awhile, but figured it was better suited to a simple poll. So have at it!

Me, I've gotta show a little love for Dalton. His Fleming-centric approach was most appreciated by me after the opposite extreme of the Moore years.

Didn't we just do this as a poll or a hurt/heal game?

Sean Connery by a mile.

I think he was perfect in the part. By far the most charming, and believable as a tough guy who could be a real cold hearted bastard at times. The films he was in struck just the right tone between silly and serious.

As stated in the OP, there hasn't been a H/H game on this topic. As for polls and such, a search reveals that there was a "Rank the 6 James Bond actors" thread back from February through April, but I would have missed that as I was on a hiatus from the BBS then.

I thought we had one in late summer but that's ok. I'll vote for Connery again.

Connery has the magic, but Dalton is much closer to Bond in the later books (and in the novel of CR, the first one.) Nobody else really matters, since Brosnan only got to do Bond properly in TAILOR OF PANAMA which don't count.

Brosnan

Dalton.

Dudes, he was in Flash Gordon!!!!!!!!


And Craig is a very close second. In fact, I'd peel those Speedos off in a nanosecond....

Brosnan.

Connery, then Moore, then Lazenby, then Brosnan, then Dalton and finally, off somewhere in the distance, Craig.

Connery, by a distance.

Then Lazenby, Dalton and Brosnan on a par, then Craig.

Moore? :guffaw: Good Lord, no. Horrendous.
