I've always preferred Dalton. It's taken almost fifty years for OHMSS to be appreciated, so maybe Dalton will be beloved soon! Now, perhaps.
Yikes, it is Not even 40 yet

Me, I've gotta show a little love for Dalton. His Fleming-centric approach was most appreciated by me after the opposite extreme of the Moore years.
Agreed. And he's just smoky with economy of means. Fine actor. Probably the most classy Bond.
I mean, weeks ago, I saw Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona at the movies, where virile latin hot stuff Javier Bardem had romance with Scarlett Johansson (and particularly, fresh face Rebecca Hall); and I liked the movie, but no thrill. Then I saw The Living Daylights with Timothy Dalton again, in bad conditions, but the ferris wheel scene had more effect on me than the whole aforementioned movie.

Daniel Craig. Sure Pierce Brosnan looks the part but DC can actually beat up someone and seem believable.

Re: Favorite Bond actor

1. Dalton (shame he didn't get more films and scripts that better suited his drier sense of humour)
2. Craig (he's getting increasingly close to Dalton however, ironic given I was one of those who hated his casting!)
3. Moore/Brosnan (really can't decide between them, Brosnan slips for being an amalgam Bond rather than brining anything new to the role, but picks up bonus points for being so obviously thrilled to bits to be playing Bond, his boyish glee is infectious)
5. Lazenby (The perfect Bond for OHMSS, thank Christ Connery didn't do it)
6. Connery (I honestly find his Bond the least likeable and the least empathetic.)

Sean Connery by a mile.

I think he was perfect in the part. By far the most charming, and believable as a tough guy who could be a real cold hearted bastard at times. The films he was in struck just the right tone between silly and serious.
This.

I grew up a big Brosnan fan. Those scripts though...

Re: Favorite Bond actor

1) Connery (first one I saw)

2) Craig (virtually tied with Connery, possibly surpassed him. Fleming's Bond incarnate)

3) Moore (say what you will about the comic book Bond, but I love him)

4) Brosnan (To me, he's always been a Connery-Moore hybrid. He could play funny and serious, but he didn't get a really good, classic Bond though I personally loved Tomorrow Never Dies)

5) Dalton (Liked him a lot, though like Brosnan, he never got a really good Bond film.)

6) Lazenby (I used to dislike his portrayal, but I've grown to appreciate it in recent years.)

I liked and enjoyed all the portrayals.

Well, I guess I should thank everyone for participating in my thread...six years later....

Some of you guys might have missed the series of Bond-themed Hurt/Heal games that preceded this.

Connery (I honestly find his Bond the least likeable and the least empathetic
Bond at his essence is a spy and even to some extent a professional terrorist. Why should he be overly likable and at all empathetic?

Bond isn't very likeable, nor should he be.

Re: Favorite Bond actor

He's just so invulnerable, emotionally I mean. Thank God he quite before OHMSS, his reaction to Tracy's death would, I imagine, have been something akin to Austin Powers' reaction to Vanessa dying at the start of the Spy who Shagged me...

It's not that I don't think he's a good Bond (there's never been a bad Bond IMO) I'd just rather watch any of the others if I'm honest.
