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

I think Fassbender would make a great Bond, my only concern would be that in some films his accent is somewhat inconcistent. In Centurian half the time he was very English, but the other half of the time he slipped into his (natural I believe) Irish.

Bettany I can't see as Bond, Toby Stephens I'd love to be Bond, the amusement of a Bond villain playing Bond would be worth it alone. And of course he already has played Bond on the radio.

I like the idea of Bale, but he's Batman, and to be honest he's gotta make me forget T4 before I champion him for something like Bond.

Have you seen The Fighter? I thought he was really good in that.

No I haven't, but even in the trailers he looks good.

I just feel he shouldn't have done T4, and if he did shouldn't have wanted to play John Connor. He is a v good actor though, and the first time I saw him in a dinner jacket in Batman Begins I thought he'd make a superb Bond.

Next Bond should be black. He has been white for far too long already.

You mean she should be black, just to be absolutely sure.

Unless it's Idris Elba, who would be good.

Kind of OT in the topic now, but I know before somewhere we were talking about Fassbender's merits as the combination between Dalton and Craig. Hollywood Spy is doing a poll on who should be the next Bond.

http://hollywood-spy.blogspot.com/


Down on the right, is the poll:

WHO SHOULD BE NEW JAMES BOND?

Matthew Goode

Hugh Jackman

Lee Pace

Paul Bettany

Toby Stephens

Michael Fassbender

James Purefoy

Thomas Kretschman - German and will be 50 next year? Not a chance.

Bale would have been a great Bond and my suspicion is that Eon originally wanted him to replace Brosnan. There was a rumour that he was reluctant to accept the Batman role as he knew it would rule him out for 007; being a Brit, he valued Bond's iconic status.

And I do think it has ruled him out. IIRC, the Bond actor isn't allowed to wear a tux in any other movie during his term. Bruce Wayne is often required to wear one. Both characters use fancy gadgets and are often assisted by an elderly sidekick (M or Q v Alfred). Both fight flamboyant villains (in particular, Bale's Batman has taken on Ras Al Ghul, the most Bond-esque villain, created in the 1970s as an equivalent to the Bond baddies). Both have ostensibly playboy lifestyles and drive cool cars. So I can't see the same actor being allowed to play both characters at the same time or even in near proximity.

I know we've been having fun with the speculation, but I'm kind of surprised that they are doing this, I mean is there a point this early? Also, Cavill isn't on the list. As we discussed before, it certainly is possible he could be done with Superman by time the next Bond is needed.

Of course, I still say Fassbender. Vaughn made Craig look so good in Layer Cake, and now he's got all the press calling MF a 'bond like Magneto'. Nothing to do but wait and debate I suppose. I can't abide Toby Stephens, his entire career is thanks to mom Maggie Smith as far as I'm concerned.

Mods if you'd rather make a new thread, feel free.
Goode - too weedy. Not seeing it.

Jackman - I would have given him the role last time out. But he's only 7 months or so younger than Craig and while Sean Connery may famously have 'made way for an older man' (in Moore), the last few times Bond has been re-cast, the new man has been a few years younger than his predecessor.

Lee Pace - Too much in the James Stewart mould, rather than the Sean Connery mould. Far too nice.

Paul Bettany - Too blond and balding. More likely to be cast as Q than 007.

Toby Stephens - they will not cast someone who has been a Bond villain in a movie. End of.

Fassbender - probably the most likely choice. Can't wait to see how the UK tabloids react to Bond being played by a German-born, Irish raised actor, who came to prominence playing IRA martyr Bobby Sands.

James Purefoy - too old, last time out would have been his last chance.

Why in the blue hell are we talking about a new Bond actor when the current one hasn't even started shooting his next Bond film?

And a gay one at that! Where is it written that Bond has to be straight?

50 years of shagging strings of women might be a bit of a hint about his preferences though.

Well, technically a gay, black, female, muppet Bond would still be shagging women.

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

Timby I agree and I wonder who the heck came up with this list and why they did it now. We casually discussed post Craig possibilities before, but I don't know why a site is making like there is an immediate campaign and half the guys on their list are all wrong.

So far Fassbender is winning anyway. And although he's my choice, the rest of the options in the poll kind of stink.

I made some Blood Creek avatars by request the other night and kind of thought this was very Connery, hope you can see it okay.

http://i518.photobucket.com/albums/u...rs/creek13.png

I'm not worried about his accent. While I liked the movie, Centurion is not the best film for strong dialogue, voices and accents. His old Brit speak is fine in Inglourious Basterds. And yeah, speaking of Connery, I don't think accent much matters when it comes to Bond, does it? Lazenby, anyone? MF could just use his plain Irish sound.
