Or Anthony Head. I always thought he'd make a great Q.

Maybe Ben Whishaw is playing a young geeky Q?

Hugh Laurie as Q has always been my choice for the Craig era.

Brian May as Q, which stands for Queen. He built his own guitar, he's clearly up to the job.

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

All good suggestions.. The thought of it being James May gave me a smile. If they do it, it should be a lesser known actor and it should be played somewhat straight, much like they did for the first couple of Conner flicks.. Q had some witty lines, but they weren't the slapsticky scenes they quickly evolved into...

That said, with the way things are these days, the role will end up going to Simon Pegg.. LOL

No, he's already Tom Cruise's Q.

Hugh Laurie, Rowan Atkinson or John Cleese would be nice.

Stephen Fry! From QI to Q.

I love John Cleese, but I didn't think his Q quite worked. Maybe it's because he's primarily a comedian, and while there is much humor in the Q scenes, Q himself is not a humorous character in himself.

Hugh Laurie might work, but Tony Head is still my personal choice. He already has a bit of a Desmond Llewelyn quality to him, so he'd make a very good Major Boothroyd.

Agreed. The humor should be that which they've established to be the norm for the Craig era: dry, deadpan, understated--natural.

To wit, Craig's incomparable "Oh, I'm sorry. That last hand--it nearly killed me...."

Nothing over the top--nothing goofy.

Well GE, CR, and GF all had bathroom scenes in their openings and they all turned out okay.
