^Except it can't be a promotion from his position in the "old" fims, since they were all in a different timeline. Remember, Casino Royale is supposed to be Bond's first mission as a "00".

^ M is the same, and it's not HER first mission, so it doesn't have to be Q's either.

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

Thank you Laser Beam! I would rather have some sort of fudge on Salmon as the way they kept Dench as M rather than loose Robinson. They could even make a pun- Should I call him Q...or R?

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

Well, by that reasoning--have John Cleese as Q!

Of course...he might be too "goofy" for the harder-edged Craig films.



But frankly...one could say we've already seen Q in the Craig films. There's the guy in Casino who put the implant in Bond. ("Ow." )

Or maybe one of the two guys guiding Bond with the defibrilator. (I'm personally rooting for the older one, with the greying hair. The other guy is "R". )

Or maybe the guy in Quantum who briefs Bond and M on the marked bills.

Michael Caine as James Bond, on his last mission. Judging by Caine's performance in Harry Brown he could be more of an action star than he lets on.

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

I thin kwe debated her somewhere before as to whether any of the guys you mentioned Rush were in fact intended to be Q. This is why I don't why they didn't already have a Moneypenny. Just have a women hand a paper to M and walk away, we don't need to know anything fun and cheeky just yet. It just bugs me, as you say Cleese is too funny for the dark of Craig. They could have been laying some of these witty foundations sooner in keeping with some sort of Bondisms instead of being so depressing and dry.

I don't wonder if a lot of this support casting depends on how much longer Judi Dench remains as M? Would she retire after possibly 2 more films with Craig? Should that be a future plotline? Why not Robinson as M?

Any prem talk on what they are doing with the script yet?

Reminds me of an old joke I used to keep trotting out. A lot of people are really tired of me saying this, so I'll put it in spoiler code.

I actually think DeLancie would be an excellent Bond Villain.

Just imagine:

Craig: You expect me to talk?

DeLancie: (deadpan) Of course not, Mr. Bond. I expect you to DIE.

Craig: Hmm. I suppose I woudn't hate to dissapoint you on that.

DeLancie: Enough. (snaps fingers...snaps again--snaps again--looks frustrated)

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

Okay. I can't tell if this is a wise ad or not. Is it offensive because Craig is dressed up as a woman? I found Dench's narration pretty hard hitting, but I think him in drag is a miss. Ew, no pun intended!

I can't be bothered to link it, as it's clearly bullshit but apparently The Sun yesterday reckoned that Bond bosses were after Anthony Hopkins to play a villain in this movie and that they hoped he would be a recurring character, a sort of modern Blofeld. Yeah, right, we believe you.

They were after him fr Goldeneye, but it's a bit late now.

Javier Bardem has the gig anyway, doesn't he?

^ Apparently. And Kevin Spacey was also up for it. Hard to see a role that could potentially be played by all three of them. Though, then again, the Sean Bean role in Goldeneye was originally intended for Hopkins, as you say.

Not exactly. In the "Hopkins" draft, Hopkins was to play Bond's mentor (read: Bernard Lee's M!), who turned to villainy. Frankly, that would have been a LOT darker--perhaps too dark for a Bond film, as we knew and loved the character.

Almost like Jim Phelps turning out to be the villain in Mission: Impossible, the movie....
