I'm a long time Bond fan (since 1973, when I was 8 years old). At first, I didn't care for Craig. I loved Casino Royale, but wasn't sure about him. After Quantum of Solace, and especially Skyfall, I am sold on him. I now think he is a terrific bond. I hope he sticks around for another 6 or 8 films.

In a critics' movie preview, I told the reviewer that Daniel Craig should have been cast as 007's "turncoat" or straight out "bad guy." A good actor (Munich) but unable to work a tux or be a frau "fantasy object." Jude Law is more believable as an educated professional, but not as a master seducer of women.

British actor James Scott who plays EJ on "Days of Our Lives". He can restore that fantastical James Bond that Roger Moore did so brilliantly in the 70s.
I am fucking sick of the serious hyper-real Bond that is apparently so 'true' to the books. The original novels are there for a reason - to be read. We've seen the Bond that's true to Fleming but I firmly believe the public love the cinematic Bond for his larger than life qualities - now they need to make the films innocuous entertainment again with stupid gadgets, campy villains and flamboyant girls.
Just watch this scene and tell me James Scott wouldn't bring the fun back to the Bond franchise. He's bloody gorgeous too:

Sting is from Newcastle, if you listen to old interviews, you can see he's completely changed his speaking voice, he now sounds very posh, much in the same way James Scott's voice now sounds.

No American will ever be cast as James Bond.
I do wonder though what does come first: The actor who gets cast or the image the writers/creators envision for this James Bond (and the appropiate actor gets cast based on that plan)?
Since Craig's movie were mostly about action and a couple of spy moments (not much about seducing and banging women) he is a great choice. He also brings this brooding quality to the role where he is kind of a sour puss.

"Daniel Craig looks like a Nazi ideal. Those blue eyes don't seem human. He was the vision that Hitler had for the world"
I think you're right, R59, and I think it works for the role. Bond is spends his life lying to people, and killing when he has to, he's basically a career criminal with a thin veneer of civilization. Connery and Craig share a brutality that makes Bond believable (and a sexuality that makes him attractive), rather than a swanky cartoon like Roger Moore's Bond.
And I can't believe anyone is nostalgic about the Moore films, even a Soap fan! Has anyone seen those movies lately? They're terrible, and seen through modern eyes Moore is more femme than polished.

Rob James-Collier is a good choice, I hope I get to see him in movies or other BBC/UK shows broadcast in America. But, he and James Scott (also a fine choice) are a little young for the role.
