from the people mentioned, who do you think is the best choice! I actually like that Butler guy.
I had wanted Jackman but thats out now,Butler would be a good choice
others i wouldn't mind seeing are Ewan Mcgregor and Julian Mcmahon,
I don't think it's a good idea... A prequel, I was already skeptical (Bond works better as an established character), but a restart might modifie the character beyond recognition. Restart can be useful (Batman Begins), but James Bond as a character is fine as he is...
Are McGregor and McMahon possibilites?
Mcmahon has been around the lists as a candidate for a while and he wants it,Ewan has been mentioned but unlike some of the others his career doesn't need it so he's probably less likely IMO
Julian McMahon = not British = not James Bond.
I know he's from Oz and so was Lazenby.
well if you look at the recent list of the supposed final 4 non of them except the guy who's as old as Brosnan was british and Mcmahon is better than those options IMO
Well I guess since Aussies are descendents of deported British criminals anyway....
Me neither. From what I can tell they just want a pretty face...
[Del Boy]Just think if your father hadn't been a villain we couldve been related[Del Boy]
Yep,i see no point in trying to revitalise the franchise and making it more "realisitc" and more like Bourne if they cast some pretty face non actor in the role
Bond has never been about acting. You need a really strong screen prescence, to hold everything else together. That's all it is - Connery, Moore, Brosnan coasting on their charisma and witty lines. Only Dalton tried to act the role, and audiences didn't appreciate it.
^^^^Brosnan is British
well i think your right up to a point but some of the guys there talking about are lacking in all departments plus it takes a certain skill as an actor to make a character like Bond watchable IMO
Agreed. The problem with the casting ideas so far is that I see none of the actors they want to cast having any charisma, or masculinity to play Bond.
Do your research, he's Irish.
Ireland is part of Britain or at least Northern Ireland is
England, N.Ireland, scotland and Wales = great britain.
Yes but Brosnan is not from Northern Ireland.And it's only part of Northern Ireland that's british too.
Brosnan is 100% irish.
And in relation to the new Bond movie,I hope it's better than the pile of BS that Die another day was.
Goldfinger is still the definitive Bond movie to this day IMO.
it sucks what they did to Brosnan. you'd think after 4 films with good returns they'd treat him a little better.
i was also hoping that Jackman would by our next Bond, but then the statement he released earlier this week has shot down that possibility.
Julian Mcmahon... hmm i havent considered him before, but yeah he does look the part and certainly has the potential of carry a franchise. he's did pretty well as Dr Doom.
Nothing can top Goldfinger. It established the tired and true formula of the films, way before Bond turned into a sharper image commercial.
The writer of Million Dollar Baby (i.e., the best picture of last year) is re-writing the story
