Who should be the next James Bond?

For me is clear that Henry (we all know which one) has born to play that role.

I mean some say Tom Hiddleston (who has always looks kind of gross and raped to me I don’t know why) or Tom Hardy, who bored me as fuck and apparently is a crazy asshole. There are lots of other names in this article but I would be surprised if they don’t cast one of this three.

What are your guesses girl? Discuss!

Henry Cavill is so not going be the next Bond. The producers of Netflix's The Witcher will not let him out of his contract (and they sure must love the talk about Cavill willing to drop everything to play Bond). Like the producers of Remington Steele prevented Pierce Brosnan from becoming Bond and Timothy Dalton got the gig instead.

The Bond producers will probably go with someone who doesn't come with another action hero franchise baggage that distracts from the Bond brand.

Like Jack O' Connell.

More like looks like Sam Heughan's publicist is doing the absolute most to convince people of this with zero proof anywhere other than press releases they put out themselves.

Tom Hiddleston already auditioned for Bond with "The Night Manager" and all that one proved was that Hugh Laurie was born to play a Bond villain.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Henry Golding are both good picks, but I think it'll be someone with a strong action pedigree and not so young, like Tom Hardy. Idris would've been great, but he's too old now.

Henry Golding has the right look, he's not another white guy, and the Asian markets would probably love an Anglo-Asian Bond.

If they do go with another white guy, the only one on that list who looks like a Bond to me is James Norton. He's also not so well-known that his own stardom will overshadow the franchise.

He and Golding are both the right age--mid 30s is just the right time to start as Bond, as it gives you a good 15-20 years to play the role.

[Quote] I think the producers may pass on OJ-C

Yes because he's not written up in contention anywhere. If he were to get it, it would come completely out of left field. No one, not even his own agents, are seriously discussing him for the role. It's a shame because he's the best contender of all the young British actors out there. Manly physique with a hint of sensitivity in his persona, an extensive repertoire of previous roles, not too famous and has no real baggage. I know some people say his stanning for Madonna and Ariana Grande makes him appear too fem, but if Pierce Brosnan can star in fucking Mamma Mia and Daniel Craig can be besties with that gremlin Andy Cohen and not lose their man credentials, I really don't think OJC being a lover of female pop stars is such a deal breaker. Maybe we'll get a surprise, but it's extremely unlikely he'll get it, though he deserves it.

Can Henry Cavill be deconstructed so his body looks like it did in The Tudors or The Count of Monte Cristo. Bond was not a Michelin Man. And he was white. And a man. Create new superhero novels on which to base new black or female secret service agents. And, as someone pointed out above, is James Bond even relevant anymore?

To everyone saying that James Bond isn't relevant anymore, you're probably not wrong from a cultural perspective, but you're also not looking at it from the point of view of the studio. The Daniel Craig Bond films grossed over $3 BILLION worldwide, and the last one actually made more money than its immediate predecessor. There is no way they're going to quit making them any time in the next ten years. There's just too much money at stake.

People precumming and salivating over Idris Elba & making weird "Idris = Bond" fanart. He eventually had to make a statement saying no he wasn't going to do it.

[quote]no way, Riz Ahmed has that always on the verge of tears look, and people still remember him linking lack of diversity in film and television with teenagers joining ISIS, people in the UK anyway.

Yes, I remember that. For an Oxford grad, he says some extremely stupid things.

Riz has recently moved to the US. He's desperate for US stardom. Right now, he's in California, living with his new wife's family! He wants to maintain his apartment in London and also live in the US. He's not exactly wealthy, his listed worth is not exactly true. Who knows how he hopes to live that jet-set life. His wife doesn't have a job.

He's barely known in his own country, the UK. The tea is, he's burned way too many bridges and no one wants him. He's auditioned for many roles, yet has been rejected, that's why he produced and wrote his last film Mogul Mowgli, about a rapper who gets a serious illness. Seems autobiographical.

Riz married an American woman of Indian descent, she's Muslim. She grew up in California. She's supposedly an author her first book was published through DL fave Sarah Jessica Parker's imprint, Hogarth.

His wife is lazy and has no desire to work, she actually thinks Riz is much wealthier than he really is. The tea is, he basically married this woman for a green card. Seems she's way too stupid to have figured any of this out. They barely know each other, they married less than a year after hooking up.

Riz is a master manipulator. People in the industry have sure figured him out. He'll fade into obscurity soon enough. It's too bad, because he is a good actor, his indie films were good.

Riz's FOUR LIONS co-star, Kayvan Novak, has found US success with his series What We Do in the Shadows. Then again, Kayvan is likable, Riz isn't. He's so full of himself.

He might've shown promise at some point but in practically all films and TV shows I've seen him he's playing this tough guy unable to convey emotions... or more likely he's just a shitty actor who just doesn't know how. I've long ago started skipping anything he stars in. And he's Swedish which pretty much automatically disqualifies him.

[quote] Charlie Hunnam has done more bad acting than good.

I actually like him but ever since growing up and choosing to always be a tough guy, possibly to wash away his QAF past, he can be boring as hell which is poison for showing interesting screen presence. It's a shame since there's something super hot about him.

Maybe there's a reason so many successful action stars are rumored to be gay. They manage to slip something interesting into their characters since they are in a way not afraid to show emotions, even in some very low key way. Obviously I could be wrong since they're all closeted but next to a piece of wood like that idiot asshole Steven Seagal people like Hugh Jackman seem like Laurence Olivier.

Charlie's claim to fame was that he got his ass ate on national TV in the UK. He managed to parlay that into a few high profile projects but he never had a breakthrough. "Sons of Anarchy" was an ensemble.

He's too pretty, besides obviously being a Dane. There are a bit too pretty Brits as well, like James D'Arcy and Matthew Goode, who might be suitable for Bond. Roger Moore was actually surprisingly pretty when he started out as Bond, so you never know.

A wild card: Aaron Johnson. Not sure the production would like all the controversy around him, and there's no denying he's got this weird blandness to him.

by Anonymousreply 24711/12/2020

Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Hear me out.

The best Bond, dramatically and artistically-speaking, is Lazenby’s tortured, paranoid, shell of a man; someone who has lost everything, and signed up for the job, so he has no recourse. The stark reality when you scratch away the sticky gloss of dried champagne and pomade and cum. In our times, isn’t that the most honest version of James with which to present us?

JRM has Lazenby’s fragile beauty, and brings to the table his own deep shades. He seems a man who has realised that empty abstract concepts cannot be his salvation from loneliness, and teeters on the brink of self-destruction, but with some small part inside him refusing to succumb just yet. That’s the Bond we need to see and face up to, even if it’s uncomfortable.

Sadly, Jonathan himself doesn’t want the part. He does admit to wanting a crack at a villain, though, and I think he’d do a fine job at that, as well. I can see him playing a silent eccentric assassin, like an updated Locque; he projects a similar chilly instability to the late Michael Gothard.

This question depends entirely what age and style of Bond you’re going for. If they’re rebooting the franchise and starting with a callow early-twenties Bond, that’s going to look very different to a silver fox Bond. The time period it will be set in alters the choices, too, as does the tone of the next lot of films. Availability and likelihood of the performer to commit is another consideration. It’s not as simple as picking your favorite gorgeous middling-talent actor.

It's weird how likeable and deep the character of Jon Snow was but elsewhere Kit has huge troubles selling a character. In this film Harington was dull as dishwater and seemed to be trying too hard to be what he's not. Not all actors manage to be believable action heroes.

It won't be someone who's already had a starring role in any major TV or film franchise. It will be a thirtysomething British actor with some decent acting credits but no marquee roles. The Bond folks don't want their new Bond's persona overshadowed by any previous roles, and they also don't want to pay A-list prices or deal with A-list drama. Unless playing James Bond makes their actor A-list as it did for Craig, and then they'll back up the Brinks truck to keep a successful Bond for a couple more films.

Madden got out of the Game of Thrones franchise early enough and has done other notable work, so that I believe he is still worth looking at. I've seen him in Bodyguard, and a movie with Idris Elba called The Take and he was very good. Luke Evans did an excellent job in The Alienist, even though the second season was a shit mess. He's worth a look. Definitely. I also have no problem with Nicholas Hoult or Joe Alwyn. Both of they have done an excellent job in the movies they've made so far.

Bond needs to look like what the producers want him to look like to suit the storyline and today's culture of what a spy hero is supposed to look like in order to the audience to at least believe that the guy could be a spy saving the world.

Craig's Bond was more of an action star than a spy spending precious time to infiltrate a villain's inner circle or private lair.

It's all about the producers and in what direction they want to the franchise to go after Craig. Another "reboot"? A new type of Bond who is even more woke asking enemies for consent before he kills them or who struggles with Fibromyalgia or has his own #metoo scandal to deal with while saving the world.

In any event, unlike some of these other actors, who absolutely need the Bond role to be a big breakthrough for their careers, I've read that OJC has been approached by Marvel and Star Wars for potential future roles. So unlike some of the other actors on the list, it's not like OJC isn't going to break out some other way if Bond doesn't happen for him.

Of the names that get more seriously thrown around, I'm in the James Norton camp. Maybe one of the people involved in casting can read this thread and take our advice on who to cast for the role. We do a pretty good job of weighing the pros and cons of each actor, in my opinion. It does seem like OJC is the DL favorite. The outside world should know that we have good taste and should trust our judgement on this. He gets support from us for good reason.

R344 I believe you FWIW, but do you remember where you read this? I know the Twitter stans really wanted him for some Marvel TV show role recently, but the role ended up going to Oscar Isaac, and OJC himself said in a few recent interviews that Marvel never called him for it. I think he actually might be *too* obscure for the role at this point still.

Matthew Goode was never really James Bond material. He is currently starring in A Discovery of Witches as possibly a leading man. I haven't watched the show but I tried listening to it as an audiobook so no idea how big they made his role. In the novel he seems to be mostly the main character since the real main character, a lady witch, ends up doing nothing but fawning over him like a teen girl in heat, and not a middle aged university scholar.

In fact I was visiting the UK, and insisted on going to Windsor Castle to see St. George's chapel, to visit Charles Brandon in his tomb. He wa cold and unfeeling... Luke Evans IMO is hot, but I think he would do much better as a Bond Villain. Henry Golding is interesting. Just don't think he projects enough "toughness " to be Bond. Richard Madden still remains on my active consideration list. He was really amazing in the Body Guard and The Take was very good fun with Idris Elba. David Oyelowo might be worth considering, too. Although I like Chewitel Ejiofor better. Ioan Gryffudd is another one. A Welsh actor who might be worth looking at. He has the looks and the build and he 's a very good actor.

Tom Hardy would not make a good Bond. He is too....Marlon Brando- ish. Method. Actor's Studio. Art House.

Tom Hardy is too old and too famous.

Tom Hardy is Venom. Venom 2 is supposed to come out in 2021. I doubt producers of Venom and the ones from Bond want to share him and schedule their filming around the other.

r397, I've worked with David, he would have to work out a lot to get to Bond status (and he's of middling height). Chewitel would be a better choice

Does anyone care who Taylor Swift is sleeping with?

I don't give a fuck about Taylor Swift. Not at all. I'm looking at Joe's work. And his looks, TBH. Who he fucks or pretends to fuck is not an operating concern for purposes of this discussion.
