From the below-linked Time Traveler's Wife thread although not linked to any source:

[quote] Theo James has been reportedly confirmed as the new James Bond, replacing Daniel Craig from the highly coveted role, according to The Portly Gazelle. James reportedly held a press conference of Sunday to confirm rumors that he will be playing the role of Agent 007 for three installment of the popular franchise.

James has a bunch of idolizing female stans online who think he walks on water. They were reactivated like zombies when he appeared in PBS' Sanditon and are "active" on twitter. They are amusing to watch defending him as he defends his character in Time Traveling Dude grooming his wife since she was 6.

The reviews of Time Traveler's Wife are deadly. The viewership dismal as well. I guess they're hoping the kinkier aspects will draw in more viewers.

[quote] The makers of Sanditon should have secured his services for more than one season.

He could have returned. They don't always have contracts that extend beyond the first series and none of the other returning stars had contracts. I think I read that once it initially got cancelled that cancelled any of the extended contracts plus the pandemic interfered.

But he was obviously a major part of the story and they had to totally rewrite it when he refused to return. I liked how they handled his absence. They even offered to work around his HBO schedule to finish the narrative. I suspect he thought the higher profile, PR & money from HBO over a PBS Masterpiece project was more to his liking and career. The writers said that they could handle his absence but had the female star not returned they couldn't have continued.

Turns out the continued Sanditon story is better than the first season. In truth his character was too abusive and OTT - as if the directors gave him too much free reign rather than do their job directing an actor who needed direction.

The Time Traveler's Wife is a misogynist mess of a story written by a weird author who claims she modeled the female character after herself and a sexist writer (Steven Moffat) who has been rationalizing grooming the little girl into the woman the Time Traveler wants her to be in the future - a woman totally into him in every way and willing to spend her life waiting on his returns - and robbing her of any free will. It's very disturbing .

I don't think Craig was "soft" when he was first given the role. He was best known in the US for playing a malevolent character in The Road to Perdition and his immediate prior films to being cast as Bond were as taciturn characters in films like Enduring Love and Munich.

The Craig Bond films pulled off Bond being a womanizer without being exploitative and sexist and without making the love interests and female characters one dimensional so it can certainly be done. But he can't look like some kid you used to babysit for that is suddenly all grown up and making you feel old. That's what a lot of these suggestions are giving.

Madden now has 2 years to ditch Froy before filming begins.

Froy will be too old for Madden by then, anyway.

By then (and for as long as it's taking), Madden will probably be too old for Bond.

Madden will only be 37 in two years.

Madden doesn't want it. He would not consent to be papped with twinks if he did.

Madden has dated hot women for long enough that the public consider him a bisexual, not the simpering Kinsey 6 you guys make him out to be. The traditional Bond audience won't reject him like they would a black Bond or a female Bond, and the under 40s LOVE him...and they're the ones the Bond franchise need to appeal to now, as Boomers and Gen X start dying out.

Theo James?

Too wooden.

Idris Elba?

Too old.

Henry Cavill?

Too fat.

You live in a fantasy world, r150.

Madden and Styles might be too committed to Marvel to be Bond.

Look for young actors who played second lead best friends or villains to be considered for the next Bond. No stars will be cast as 007.

"As Boomers and Gen X start dying out" bitch the youngest members of Gen X are only 42, I know this is DL where anything over 30 is basically a fossil, but can you be a dear and not lump us in with the people pushing 80 just yet?

And Madden looks like he's 46, not 36, so I still think he doesn't look the part.

Charles Dera is what Bond should look like.

How many more years will it take to choose someone? why are they dragging this out?

R158... it's a joke. The guy you posted would look ridiculous as James Bond.
