I think they should just bring him back as Charles and give him a more active role.

They could also make him closer to literary Tanner since film Tanner is kind of a dud.

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

Robinson was obviously too hard, only 007 is allowed to be a hard arse now!

Shame, one of the things I miss from the older films is the giant battles ala You Only Live Twice or The Spy Who Loved Me.

I've never seen Harris in anything so don't have a clue how she'd play MP. As for Q. Dominic Keating? Good lord no, Q's supposed to have personality! Plus for some of us Keating will always be rememebred as the camp barber in Desmonds

Laurie, I can't see it. Tony Head, yes that might well work. I think the trouble is that the world has moved on, so whilst once upon a time Q might have been the eccentric rocket scientist type, he's more likely to be some geeky kid nowadays--Deaver's probably right.

Although maybe there is a way to combine the 2. Matt Smith anyone?

and though I am biased, I still think Emilia Fox would make a cracking Money Penny.

For my vote, Toby Jones as "Q".

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

It might be funny if Cleese was demoted back to 'R' and was training some whipper snapper as Q. Not teen genius Wesley, but maybe his own 30 something son. I don't suppose it would be acceptable to have a man Money Penny and a female Q? Although Tanner is kind of already secretary ish. What about easing into things with a Dr. Warmflash or Penelope Smallbone toss away?

Making Robinson the new 008 on a mission would be fun.

No, not really, since there is no such thing as 'R'. That was just a smartass remark that James made. The letter 'Q' has relevance, it stands for Quartermaster.

If Dench can play the same M, I suppose Cleese can return as Q, but I don't think they'd do that. Is Cleese even still acting, or has he retired?

Yes but M is supposed to stand something beyond Dench's character's name as well so I doubt they'd care.

M should be C anyway

I liked that in DAD Bond called Cleese Quartermaster.

Cleese hasn't retired, he's currently touring with a one man show which is blatently designed to provide the cash to pay off his last wife. I think he'd jump at the chance to get even more money by coming back but I doubt they'd ask him, I don't think he'd fit that well will Craig.

The Toby Jones idea is really growing on me now.

AFAIK, all of the M's that have appeared in the Bond films have had last names starting with M.

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

But that's why I think Cleese as R would be funny, because he never really was R. It would be neat to have him back in a demoted or secondary capacity and be called R again, as he was previously the Q. Or he could be R and look at the fourth wall, like Didn't I already do this with the other guy? Just a nice joke about the screwyness of rebooting the 007, but no one else apparently.

Actually, today they could just recreate Desmond Llewellyn if they wanted. They could have had a Moneypenny all along. A little bit of humor from her is what Craig's films have thus far been lacking.
