A little skinny perhaps but he could bring an intellectual/sociopathic aspect to the role that would give the whole thing a bit of edge.

I was thinking of him too just before I left work. If he played it like he played the more friendly side of the character in 'Gangster No.1' Would be very interesting.

Adrian Paul should be the next bond (imo)
he has the skills needed to be convincing , swordfighting, martial arts, etc.
he looks like a cross between a younger connery and dalton.
he is british.
perfect choice.

I think Clive Owen would make a good bond... providing he toughens up a bit. he is very good in the BMW films (well almost all of them).

Its a real shame that Brosnan isn't doing anymore, I thought he fitted it quite well, especially in the current time. Didn't like the dodgy kitesurfing - pet hate!

Heard some where that Tarantino wants to direct as well.... personally that sounds like hell on earth to me, as I don't like the fella.

Eric Bana is a really good actor - He can change roles really well, Chopper to Hector - looks totally different and acts well. Might be ok...

Don't think Hugh Jackman would fit - just think Wolverine all the time!

Hope we get a British Person.... or Irish or Australian/New Zeland with a posh english accent!

Personally would stop watching if it was an American - Kinda destroys the character...But maybe that's wrong to think that.

Any idea of a firm list of candidates for bond & directing?

The $7.95 is Postage & Packaging costs... The DVD itself is free.

Choices for Bond -

Alexis Denisof - OK, he's not English, but neither were Connery, Brosnan or Lazenby - and he does an english accent better than most english people. And he plays hard-illegitimate-child ( ) better than anybody - see Angel S5.

Adrian Paul - he was terrific in Highlander - Duncan was a very complex character, could make for an interesting multi-faceted Bond (while standing in front of some dodgy CGI FX no doubt)

Paul McGann - I can see the Sun headline now - 'Who is James Bond!'

Ralph / Joe Fiennes - either would be good - Ralph for a more refined Bond, Joe for a more Dalton-esque 007 (although he's perhaps a bit young)

Jude Law - he'd make a fabulous Bond, but in a few years perhaps, he's a bit too young at the moment.

Jonny Lee Miller - left field choice......

And put the new Bond in an Aston Martin DB9

No chance of it happening, but he would be a fantastic Bond, he's got that really tough as nuts thing going for him and he would be fantastic to watch as Bond. If any of you aree fans of Angel, check out season 4 episode 'Apocolyse, nowish' to see him do some cool john woo style gun fighting.

Another TV star who would if he could master an English ascent would be ideal is Goran Visijc (SP?) from Er. With an English accent he would be a fantastic Bond.

On a differnt whim, they need to make a good choice with a bond, I love bond movies but the best part about the last 2 films is that Brosnan is the perfect Bond. Get a bad bond + a bad movie and the franchise could be over....

I've touted Clive Owen as Bond for a long time now, but the (supposedly) dire might hamper his chances. Although, would he be any more of a risk than any of the other names touted, with the possible exception of Hugh Jackman? Anyone else doubting Owen might want to check out Gosford Park. A very different film, but I think he gives a good performance in it.

It's important, I think, to consider that the next Bond would have to be someone who's available. Ie, someone who's not tied to a franchise. I thought Van Helsing was going to be a franchise, so that could rule out Hugh Jackman. Ditto Christian Bale (Batman), although I think he would be an excellent choice, if perhaps too young. Eric Bana is an interesting name, and I rate him as an actor. He has that mix of intensity, intelligence and physicality that is part of Bond.

Another name I'd like to throw into the ring is Jeremy Northam. He'd look the part, and he can act the Brit, but whether he'd have the intensity or the physical presence is another question. Jim Caviezal is an interesting idea, but I'm not sure. TBH, I don't know enough about him - I haven't seen "The Passion", or any of his other work.

It's a shame that Brosnan has gone. He'd done a solid job, without necessarily bringing a new angle to the role. He was like an amalgam of all the previous Bonds I suppose. I think though that it's better for him to have left - maybe this will be a kick up the bum for the producers and writers, to create a new Bond like the one hinted at in the early parts of Die Another Day - grittier, more cynical and disillusioned, yet still the consumate pro and the best man at his job.

Isn't Roger Moore's son being considered for the part of Bond?
