Because the choices in the other poll are idiotic.
Who should be the next Bond?

Obvious but Barry Sloane from Revenge would be my choice.

Tom Hardy is too good to play Bond.

Clive Owen was offered the role before Daniel Craig and turned it down.

Clive Owen would have been excellent.

Clive Owen is the obvious choice.
As much as I love Henry Cavill, he's too pretty for the role. Nicholas Hoult is much too young. Tom Hardy is too rough and tumble. The others listed are non-entities.

Robert Pattinson will make a good Bond in about 20 years.

That list is laughable, so I chose "other". I think they should have an unknown do the role.

David Gandy is a great choice OP, and I think they'd be better off grooming an unknown like Gandy who physically personifies Bond rather than trying to make another Brit star happen.

Clive Owen is too old now. I'm sure he's kicking himself for turning Bond down.
He never, ever had the big breakthrough role in the U.S. that could have made him. And much less talented actors (Gerard Butler, hello?) are getting parts that should have been his. His last roles were made-for-cable movies.

Doesn't the Bond actor have to be British?

I say it should be given to an American since these nasty Brits keep taking American roles.

Tom Hardy. He's both handsome and very sexy, he's the right age, and he's talented.
He also has what I consider to be essential to a good Bond: He can seem terribly brutal, or quite polished. Bond is really a sort of hired killer, the only difference between him and a hit man is a thin veneer of civilization.

my god, I didn't realize that the Bond actors covered all the countries of the British isles (and Australia mate). Moore and Craig were the only English Bonds. Didn't realize that.

I don't think Clive Owen has the discipline and physical prowess to get through a Bond film nowadays. He could've done it following Brosnan but not now that Craig has made Bond a Bourne-like action star.

Hoult would be a good choice for a James Bond, jr. franchise.
|by Anonymous||reply 23||02/19/2013|
Chaz Bono needs to be on that list.

007 is not really an interesting character to play. A bit too 2-dimensional and stereotype. Unless the producers are really trying to push the envelope and let Bond go wild, I doubt really interesting actors are willing to jump on board.

Michael Fassbender would get my vote!

Idris Elba. Sexy as hell and it is time for a black Bond.
|by Anonymous||reply 27||02/19/2013|
Other. I was intrigued by the idea that Idris Elba was in the running.
Tom Hardy would be a good choice, though.

Jude's looks are too deteriorated at this point. Maybe 10 years ago but no longer. Cavill has the looks but he is a bland actor. He would be Roger Moore like. I still think Clive could pull it off.
