Last night down the pub me and my mates discussed who we think should be the next James Bond.

Apparently Henry Caville (Man of Steel) is rumoured. He would definitely look the part.

Someone said Jude Law (The Holiday, Closer, AI, Side Effects) and he could be a good fit as he is very charming and British, but might not be much of a killer.

Finally we discussed Idris Elba (Thor, Luther, The Wire, Pacific Rim) as he'd probably be the only choice if they decided to cast a black James Bond.

Who would you chose and like to see in the role?

Of the 3 mentioned in the op, jude law is the only one who would be halfway acceptable and even then, not really.

brosnon was the one true bond, everyone before and after sucks in comparison.

Does it really matter? No matter who they choose, the directors/producers will just reduce it to pointless special effects action movie drivel.

Too true. Although I might just agree because I grew up with him as the James Bond of the time. He was definitely the funniest Bond, Moore probably being a close second.

I'd quite like having a black Bond just because my friends still try to sell the Bond movies as one continuous series and I want to see the pricks try to explain that.

The next James Bond should really be Striker Eureka though.

If you're going to be wrong, you could at least spell it correctly.

No, I'll just be right and spell it wrong thanks.

Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

it IS on continous series, up until the point it got ****ed up by the current "Bond is a codename" idiot director.

anyone who thinks the so-called "codename theory" makes more sense obviously hasn't seen anything older than Goldeneye.

I just think of every actor as a different series kind of. Too many things in the movies just don't allow for the codename theory and each Bond brings a different tone to their movies. At the end of the day though, each movie is pretty self contained and if you're really stressing about continuity while watching James Bond then you've clearly got bigger problems.

I am a massive Bond fan and I say nuke the whole thing.

The "reboot" they've attempted with Craig has ruined the series IMO.

You don't sound like a fan to me.

David Tennant.
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

In all seriousness this could work. Also I don't want to sound racist but you can't have Idris Elba as Bond. Bond needs to be white it's too ingrained in pop culture to change that now.

Good thing it's not really a matter of opinion, then.


You cannot ruin an entire series of anything by making a crappy adaptation. No matter how badly you hate the new Bond films, it doesn't change the old ones. Suggesting that is like saying all Italian food is bad because that Domino's pizza you ate was too greasy and it had a hair in it.


Besides, Casino Royale and Skyfall were great.
