I really like Hardy (he was brilliant in BRONSON), but he wouldn't be at the top of my list for BOND. I hope Craig gets several more films after SKYFALL, as I've been championing him for Bond since 2004, and he is currently my all time favorite James Bond 007. With that said, here are my suggestions for who should take over when Craig moves on (listed in order of preference):

1) JAMES PUREFOY

He was born to play Bond. He's got the cold, mirthless eyes of a killer, and the casually rapacious sexuality that served him so well on ROME would be a perfect fit for Flemming's anti hero. He was actually in the running for Bond once before, in the GOLDENEYE days, and though he's getting on in years I'd die happy if we got to see him do at least one Bond before the decade is out


2) MICHAEL FASSBENDER

He is talented, compelling and reasonably charismatic. He could play Bond. Nuff said.

BTW I was stunned to read the other day that Dalton is only 66. Only 66, and yet he was in the running to replace Connery for OHMSS back in 1968! Wow. Heck, he easily could have come back for GOLDENEYE if the studio had let him. He'd have been nearly 7 years younger than Brosnan was when Brosnan left the role.

BREAKING: New report suggests BOLLINGER will not see it's products featured in SKYFALL.

BOLLINGER is one of the only BOND PRODUCTS that pays no money in product placement deals with EON. They have a long standing friendship with the Broccoli family, and enjoy the honor of being featured as Bond's champagne of choice. Other champagnes have offered huge sums to replace BOLLINGER, and time and again the offers have been flatly refused.

BOLLINGER is putting out 50th ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION BOND CHAMPAGNE, and there is no reason to think that they will be parting ways with EON any time soon.

This can only mean one thing: Bond will not once in the movie find himself in a situation where champagne is being consumed. Is this a return to the traditional Flemming 007, drinker of whiskey? Or will Bond be on the move, with no time for casinos and other locations where ordering a '99 Bollinger Grand Anee makes sense?

Interesting questions. In November we'll have our answer.

Either that or Sony have had their way and forced EON to go where the money is, like all the other unfortunate product placement that we've seen in the last two Bond's.

I disagree, he's too much of a muscle man and nowhere near suave enough like Daniel Craig.

Did you decide to make up for the lack of BOLLINGER product placement in the new film by posting multiple times here? Cant say I would notice anyway, if you ask me what Bond drinks, all I say is vodka martini shaken not stirred.

Fuck BOLLINGER!

Did Bond or anybody else drink Bollinger in QoS, i can't remember.

I would love to see Hardy take the role one day.
Considering Tinker Tailor, if i remember right Cumberbatch expressed desires to play the role.
I don't know wether he was joking or not but just for fun, would that work, or would it be just too out there?

NO!! I can't explain it but I would be strongly opposed to Cumberbatch being Bond. I don't like his Sherlock, I don't know how he'd do Bond and I don't care to find out. Other people will disagree and I'm perfectly open to the idea that he could be good but I don't want to find out, because it'll mean Fassbender won't get it

Cumberbatch???? No. Brilliant Sherlock but would be utter pants as Bond. Just isn't intimidating and would be more suited to a Q type role.

Hardy is just not suave enough: whatever about Craig looking like a bouncer etc: he has a fantastic voice for the role. Also Bond should not have those kind of lips

Train of thought going all over the place but, how ould people feel about Nolan directing a Bond? Could be fantastic imo as Inception was certainly Bond-y and brilliant.

Yeah, i wouldn't want Cumberbatch either, definitely too out there (out there with starfleet )

Nolan would be great. Hasn't he mentioned being a Bond fan, so i guess it happening wouldn't be that far of reality.
The snow fortress scenes with the snowmobiles and everything in Inception had major Bond vibes.

Nolan has definitely said that he's a massive Bond fan and that the snow fort Inception scene was inspired by Bond. I'd love to see him do a Bond film

Let's hope that's not the case. That's not to say that paid product placement hasn't served the series well over the years - I think the OMEGA SEAMASTER / PLANET OCEAN is a far better watch for Bond than ROLEX, even though there was a great deal of controversy over OMEGA having initially paid it's way onto Bond's wrist - but in this case I think tradition should not be lightly cast aside.

The BOLLINGER discussion is definitely inside baseball, as far BOND news goes, so don't worry I don't hold it against you if you happen to find it less than riveting : P

As far as BOND DRINKS go, though on screen 007 is most readily identified with the vodka martini, in literature he was a prolific drinker. In ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE for example, the book I read most recently, he downed 46 drinks:

quote:

Pouilly-Fuissé, Riquewihr and Marsala wines, most of a bottle of Algerian wine, some 1953 Château Mouton Rothschild claret, along with Taittinger and Krug champagnes and Babycham; for whiskies he consumed three bourbon and waters, half a pint of I.W. Harper bourbon, Jack Daniel's whiskey, two double bourbons on the rocks, two whisky and sodas, two neat scotches and one glass of neat whisky; vodka consumption totalled four vodka and tonics and three double vodka martinis; other sprits included two double brandies with ginger ale, a flask of Enzian Schnaps and a double gin: he also washed this down with four steins of German beer

Great question, I honestly can't recall. It sure seems like he'd have had opportunity to. I bet there were bottles at the Opera house or the GREENE PLANET party in Bolivia.

Not sold on all this talk of Fassbender taking over as Bond in a few years time.Like Craig, hes just too evil looking which makes him suitable for baddie roles but not 007.

And before you all say why i suggest Tom Hardy considering hes played baddies before,most of the actors who have played James Bond in the past have played villains at some point in their careers.Hardy though has a heroic look to him and is just good enough an actor to play all kinds of parts.I saw This Means War recently and he was very Bond like in that.

Fassbender looks too evil? What the what? He'd be fucking perfect for the role. As Craig's doing a bang up job and will be for a while yet he's probably not going to get it.  Hardy's a top actor but he's no more "Bond material" at least by the way you seem to measure things than Craig is, which ironically would make him perfect as well. Ain't that a conundrum?

Fassbender, Hardy. Dont get me wrong I rate these guys but there isn't a major role their names don't get thrown at these days whos next. Nathan Fillion ????

Joking aside though, I would be more than happy to see Craig stay on board after Skyfall.

channelling the dark side to play bond can be effective.
fassbender would be fine as a new bond but not another reboot.
we've done the 'bond begins' thing already.

Why, thank you. I had it for a while years ago. Thought it was time to give it another airing.

Nice work, Spark! I have to say, this is my least favorite Omega Bond has worn thus far... but it's still cool enough, I guess. I'm not sure why they'd ditch the Seamaster for this comparatively bland piece though.

PS Big News these past few days, with spy photos and set reports from key action scenes filtering in at a steady pace. Plus, new video diaries from 007.com!

Does anyone reckon Skyfall will feature the traditional 'walk-turn-shoot' Bond opening that was missing from the start of the last two films? CR did a half assed version and QoS had it at the end but I'd like to see it back at the start again.

Does anyone reckon Skyfall will feature the traditional 'walk-turn-shoot' Bond opening that was missing from the start of the last two films? CR did a half assed version and QoS had it at the end but I'd like to see it back at the start again.


I wouldn't say CR had a "half assed" version, I thought it was a brilliant way to handle the introduction to the character. I actually didn't mind seeing it at the end of QOS, as I thought it was a cool, punchy way to close out the movie after the somber final shot. With that said, I wouldn't mind seeing it turn up in front of the film now as this should be our first 'proper' Bond film now that Bond has established himself with his arc in CR-QOS.

I think the two very different versions which they have bookending those films is great, really emphasises the journey the character went through, how he changed and developed.
