    He gets my vote. Hopefully, he can bring a certain level of seriousness to the Bond role the past Bonds brought cheesiness.

    He looks like a Tory MP.

    Clive Owen would have made a far better Bond. ;)

    Just heard this on the radio, damn you, you beat me to posting :p

    I'm sure he'll be great. I liked him in Layer Cake too, I can't really picture him as the Bond that I currently know, but I'm sure that will all change when I actually see him in action.

    Apparently his mum got overexcited and let the cat out of the bag yesterday

    I'm looking forward to seeing how he does - Layer Cake was a great film

    Criteria: Bond must be man enough to own a 12" Powerbook.......and not have anything to whine about.

    I sense Daniel Craig's photo moving to the Hot or Not thread for official judgment. ;)

    I would have preferred Clive Owen...

    However 5-10 years from now I can see Christian Bale as the next James Bond. He has the right swagger.

    i don't know, i guess he's attractive in the english countryclub sense, but Pierce Brosnen had that and more...I don't know he seems more fit for like a modeling poster for like an English clothing or something rather than a bond movie :p

    Ugly is a good spy quality. Nobody notices him, and he won't have any women distracting him from his job, even if he tried to pick up.

    "Bond, the greatest spy in the world.......but oh so lonely." *tear*


    Oh wait a sec......he bagged Sienna Miller. Nevermind, then. Dan's da man. :)

    Sigh... the first Bond younger than me. Had to happen sometime, I suppose. In fact, he may well be the first Bond actor younger than the James Bond series (which started in 1962). Anyone know?

    Not my first choice, which would have been Jude Law followed by Ewan McGregor, but at least he's (relatively) young and British. And we know he can play both tough and display a certain dry humor... All in all not a bad choice, although I think the two mentioned above would have been bolder and better... :)

    Jude Law?

    He has a better chance playing Tinkerbell.

    Why, has he made a pass at Keira at some point...? :p :D

    Honestly, tale look at Love, Honor and Obey and maybe a dash of Alfie and I think they'd gotten the perfect match for Ian Flemming's original right bastard of a male chauvinistic womanizing agent.

    Yes! Again, though maybe not as the male gigolo robot from AI... <shudder> :D

    What has Ian Flamming and his interpretation of Bond got to do with the films ;)
