Jason Isaacs keeps popping up, in this thread and others, if he's not good enough or whatever to continue the series he could do a one off where 'Bond goes bad', like the new game i think, he's my favourite bad guy at the moment. Also check out Eric Bana in Black Hawk Down, i think he could be good if everything else (storyline, direction, fx etc) is done like Bond should be done. Here's an idea, they could do a small scene from one of the old Bond's or a new scene and screen test a few actors that have been mentioned then let the public decide, like a phone/internet vote thing, would be better than letting the people who's let the series decline so much make the decision.

This would be the same who watch Big Brother in droves and the highlight of thier week is in voting someone out . Please god don't let the public choose who the new Bond will be, it'll probably end up being Jordan if we do that.

Bana as Bond was just a load of old rubbish it seems:

Bad idea then come to think of it, they could let the good people of this forum decide

Not going to claim I thought of this myself, but after looking through a few bond sites I'd fully endorse James Purefoy as the next Bond.

http://uk.imdb.com/name/nm0700856/

Apparently he screentested for Goldeneye and was second choice only to Brosnan.

"Brosnan, meanwhile, is committed to at least one more outing as the more mature Bond. "

Did I miss a press release or is this just out of date speculation?

He added: "We went out on a high"
I think he meant "I decided to leave after the script that the writers wrote while they were high"

This I found rather interesting

Salmon is a fine actor and I have nothing at all against having a Black Bond but he is already an established Character in the Brosnan Bond era that I just dont think it would work

I actually belive that I read somewhere months back that the studios would not approach Sean Bean (who i think would be a good bond) as he had been in Goldeneye

Brosnan said in an interview that he went to the producers with the Casino Royale Tarantino idea and they turned it down.

Didn't stop them using Charles Gray as Blofeld in Diamonds Are Forever even though he played Henderson (a good guy) in You Only Live Twice

Or Joe Don Baker - who played the villain in Living Daylights, and popped up again two movies later as the CIA guy in Goldeneye and again in Tomorrow Never Dies.

It would look a bit silly though, to make it plausible I would think you would really need to distance the new movie from the Brosnan one, with a new M and a new Moneypenny.

Apparently Salmon has been signing autographs '...Salmon 007'.

This according to The Wright Stuff.

BREAKING NEWS (from 'Entertainment', Ceefax pp. 503)

"A bookmaker has stopped taking bets on who will play the next James Bond, after receiving a number of substantial bets on actor Colin Salmon.

Ladbrokes made the move after receiving six £500 bets on Salmon to take the role. The Judge John Deed star would be the first black actor to play Bond.

However bookmaker William Hill received no bets on Salmon, dismissing them as a "stunt" to boost his profile.

William Hill continues to accept Bond bets, with Ewan McGregor as favourite."
