Cavill has expressed interest for the role as well as auditioning (didn't make it for the role) for James Bond.
Do you think Henry Cavill would make a good James Bond.
On another note, will Henry have a career after his looks fade. Maybe he can pray that he will have good genes like Tom Cruise thereby prolonging his career.
Can we stop with the Cavill threads?
And no, Cavill isn't nearly charismatic enough to do James Bond. The entire James Bond persona relies on charisma.
A very cool choice would be Idris Elba, he would kill the role, and watching people flip out over the casting would be hilarious.
r1 = JAMES FRANCO
I like the third James Bond film best, Goldfinger. How about you, OP?
Is he trying to follow in Pierce Brosnan's footsteps?
Because he could do worse. Brosnan turned a beautiful face and minimal talent into a long career, one that kept going after his looks faded.
Tammy has had work done. Do we still count her???
Not sure how many more Bonds Daniel Craig still has in him - I do like his more pugilistic looks vs. the suave Bonds we've seen before. His entire presence gave this series a nice jolt that it needed badly.
Cavill would definitely be more in the Brosnan style which had worn very thin, and is probably why he wasn't hired.
I never saw any of the Timothy Dalton Bond films, but I understand he had more of an angry attitude which might have been interesting. But the quality of the films themselves disintegrated so badly during the Roger Moore years that I stopped bothering to see them until Craig came along.
I like Daniel Craig's craggy old face. He was great in Girl With the Dragon Tatoo. I haven't watched a Bond movie since the last one with Connery. The only Bond that counts.
Why does anyone think Cavill's career will go much beyond the Superman film? It hasn't set many records (if any).
R7, Craig is indeed definitely 'craggy faced', thanks to his several pack a day nicky habit.
He claims he's 45...looks more like 55, at least from the neck up.
If Cavill knew how to act it might work.
I guess Cavill was up for it, but that really does surprise me considering he was only 21/22 at the time.
Old article. My apologies it's from the DM:

[quote]He has just proved his lady-killing credentials by seducing Sienna Miller from under the nose of his friend, Jude Law.
[quote]Now Daniel Craig is about to become the biggest seducer of all - Ian Fleming's James Bond.
[quote]The actor, who found fame as Geordie in the BBC series Our Friends in the North in 1996, got the job after an 18-month mission to replace Pierce Brosnan.
[quote]Scores of others, including Law himself, Ewan McGregor, Colin Farrell and Orlando Bloom, were considered but rejected.
[quote]Shortlist of two
[quote]In the end a shortlist of two emerged - Craig and newcomer Henry Cavill. The pair were auditioned again and tried on tuxedos to see how they would look in the quintessential Bond clothing.
[quote]Craig, 37, whose choice will be confirmed by producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson later this week, will be the sixth Bond, but the first blond.
[quote]He will star in the 21st Bond film, based on Ian Fleming's first book Casino Royale.
[quote]Craig has said he does not like the fact that the films are more about gadgets than feelings.
[quote]He added: "It's a big machine and it makes a lot of money - so why would you change something that makes a lot of money?"
What a joke! Cavill was way too young. Why did they bother, were they thinking of Bond Jr.? They wasted his time auditioning him. But I'm sure it was a flattering experience for him.
Some of you can't wait for Henry's looks to fade... well, you're going to be waiting for a very, very long time. This kid has a long career ahead of him.
Tom Hardy would make an awesome Bond.
Henry has charisma. You should see him in bed.
If only Heath Ledger, Henry Cavill or Daniel Craig would beat the shit out of the OP until he stopped posting these vapid, obsessive threads, but I guess that's too much to hope for.
Maybe they just wanted to see Cavill in the suit, just like with Superman. It seems it's all about how he "looks" in the costumes rather than his actual acting. I think that's the reason he will have a relatively long career. People like looking at him, acting chops be damned.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
