Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

I don't have a problem with the next Bond being Black (even if I do favor Fassbender) but changing Bond's race leaves me wondering how they would play Felix Leiter. I really love Jeffrey Wright's portrayal and hope to see more of him in these upcoming plans. If they do the 007 in New York bits, we may well finally get a good dose of him. Would they ever have a black Bond and a black Leiter on screen together at the same time? Or would making Bond black automatically make Leiter white again?

Actually, now that I think of it, it might be kind of neat if Colin Salmon could some how move into the Q position. There's already some classy banter and wit there, and it would be cool to see him with some badass toys and yet be so reserved. Someone posted early about him having been the best black Bond, but he can't really now. Unless they someone make him a turncoat villain in an upcoming storyline and actually have him be some sort of agent.

Eh, any real scripting and casting news for 23 of late?
