- Who'll be the next Bond?
If history is anything to go by, they’ll already know.
When Connery finished for the second time they wanted Dalton, but he thought he was too young.
When Moore finished, they wanted Brosnan, but he was contracted to Remington Steele.
I reckon it’ll be whoever they actually wanted when they had to plump for Daniel Craig

and Tom Hardy doesn’t work for me.
I reckon Rufus Sewell would be ace, and my mate and I intend to campaign for it to be Lawrence Fox cos we think he’d be awesome.
In fact for RS just imagine this with some bondesque writing all over it, few guns etc…Posted 7 years agoCountZeroMember
Dunno why there’s all this conjecture, there’s two more movies to go, at least, so that’s what, four-six years for script/filming/post-production at least, and Craig’s going to be filming both of them.Posted 7 years ago
Perhaps everyone can reconvene in 2018 and put forward some ideas then…hammeriteMember
I thought the next two bond films were going to be filmed back to back? Partly because Craig doesn’t think he can be convincing in 5 years time, bit like when you see the Dukes of Hazard reunion and the Dukes took about 5 minutes to slide across the bonnet of the General Lee!Posted 7 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
To be Bond, the real Fleming Bond, he has to be rather ratty looking and not really remarkable to look at. Built of sinew, not muscle.
Bale? Could be. Clive Owen? He’s already turned it down. Rufus Sewell? Not sure.
I think it might be someone rather less well known. After all, until Layer Cake, no one had ever thought of Craig as Bond.Posted 7 years agoCaptJonMember
There are some utterly horrible suggestions here: poor actors and people far too old when the post-DC films come along.
Bale would be good, but he’s already 4 years older than Craig. My vote would be Tom Hardy. Or out of left field: Andrew Garfield, Eddie Redmayne, Jamie Bell or R Patz.Posted 7 years agojoao3v16Member
Cumberdick Bendybatch would make a better Bond Villain than actually being Bond. That ‘just about to sneeze’ expression won’t work for Bond.
Surprised nobody’s suggested a female lady-person for Bond. Are there no
superiorityequality/feminist types on STW this morning? 😀
Ideally the 21st century Bond should represent the modern multicultural inclusive society, therefore we need Bond to be a pregnant black female muslim paralympian vegan immigrant.Posted 7 years ago
