^ 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....
It would also have made a lot more sense of 006's age (to remember what happened to his parents in the aftermath of WW2 he'd have to be at least in his mid-50s, which he clearly isn't!)

And the mentor/pupil angle probably would have worked a little better than the comrades one did--assuming they would've gone that route.

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

Do we have to have Q be an oldster? I mean, Desmond Lewellyn wasn't all that old when he began the role in the 60's, was he?

If Simon Pegg weren't already playing Scotty, he'd be good.. He can do dark and comic at the same time..

Colin Firth would be great at Q.. But of course, I don't think there's a chance in hell that he'd do the role now...

^ Pegg is basically Q in the Mission: Impossible movies anyway. And Firth apparently used to really want to be Bond. Even without the Oscar, can't imagine him settling for the role of Q.

But I agree that if the character re-appears he should be closer to Bond's age than he has recently been portrayed. He was more like an older brother to Connery, Lazenby or Moore. It was only with Dalton that he suddenly was an uncle/ father figure.

Pegg was in the M:I movies?? How did I miss that?.. Granted it's been a long time since I've watched any of them and can't really remember the plots of II and III...

^ M is the same, and it's not HER first mission, so it doesn't have to be Q's either.
M is played by the same actress, but she's not intended to be the same character from the Brosnan films. In those films she chastises Bond for being a relic of the Cold War, clearly indicating her character was never really part of the spy game during the cold war.

In Casino Royale M specifically mentions that she misses the Cold War.

I'd like to see Colin Firth as M some day, I think he'd be great.

As for Q, Pegg's too geeky (and I know Q should be geeky but maybe not that geeky!)

I'd love to see Colin Firth in a Bond film in any role. I agree he'd be great as M though.

Yeah, he played Marshall Flinkman, the quirky lab technician.
