Opinion Wars – Who should be the next James Bond?
Who should be the next James Bond?
We have Spectre out in the cinema and Daniel Craig’s four deal Bond contract up, we are left wondering will he return for another outing as the iconic spy or is it time for someone new? We have looked at who we want in the next tuxedo but who do you think is the best choice?

Darren – Movie Reviews 101
When I first saw this question I wanted to say Dan Stevens because of age but with only 3 years on Stevens Evans has bought us ‘No One Lives’ where Luke plays a killer that has military training, Fast &…

I know I’m a bit late to this debate but I’m going to head over to Movie Reviews 101 and check this out!
Yay! And not late at all 🙂
Why don’t you join in with Opinion Wars in January? Darren’s changing it up a bit but we’ll still all continue doing it. Best thing is it’s not too demanding, but a lot of fun!
I will for sure! I’m finally adjusting to my new hours and making a better schedule for myself so I will definitely take part 🙂
Excellent, that’s exciting!!!!!
Well, I voted for Idris Elba, but only because my first choice was unaccountably not available. Okay, he may be to old and the wrong nationality, but Steve Buscemi is clearly the man for the job. We’ve had handsome James Bonds, macho James Bonds, suave James Bonds — surely the time is right for a weaselly James Bond?
Haha! Steve Buscemi for James Bond, I LOVE THAT! I might start championing it and trying to think of really excellent reasoning behind it! As well as being a weaselly James of course 🙂
How are you?
Well, I think he’s be a particularly good spy if he worked with someone like Idris Elba as a partner. While everyone is watching the latter walking into a room and having his martinis shaken and not stirred, Steve Buscemi could be working away in the background doing the serious spying. Of course, if Steven Buscemi doesn’t fancy the part, there’s always William Macy.
My vote’s for Emily Blunt, but since she’s not an option, I’m going Idris Elba. I do like the Clive Owen suggestion, though.
I can’t see any woman playing James/Jane Bond but if ANYONE was going to, she’s be a good contender 🙂
Have you seen that new movie she’s in?
Idris Elba – it just makes sense!!!! We need a hip hop DJ for Bond 😉
I vote for Tom Hardy. Guy is a powerhouse at the moment!
Cheers Jordy!! I think Tom Hardy is so great, perhaps too good for a role like Bond – in a weird way. You see Legend yet? 🙂
No I hope to see it tomorrow before it disappears from cinemas. The film fest has taken up a lot of my time recently
Saw Legend, Hardy is amazing. The movie is pretty shit but Hardy is goddamn amazing. Too good for Bond eh?
I think so yeah, please don’t anyone hate me but I think the Bond films are too generic for someone like Tom Hardy. He obviously fancies himself a fair bit (fair enough lol) and takes himself quite seriously. When you look at the roles he’s done over the years, Bond just seems a bit…meh!
Yeah I only want to see Legend for his performances. How many more films/books/documentaries can there be about the Kray brothers for goodness sake. And they make them out to be loveable rogues in a way when they WERE just nasty bullies and murderers. Oh but they “loved their mum” so they were salt of the earth really!
how are you Jordy? 🙂
I actually agree with you, Tom Hardy is too good for Bond.
I had never heard of the Kray twins but the movie is so shit, its more of a love story than anything else! Tom hardy was fun to watch though
I’m doin pretty good Em 🙂 How are you goin?
BTW I am about to post chapter V of my rehab story. I’ve been so lazy with it but I’ve finally gotten off my fat arse and am transcribing the diaries
Oh it must be a British thing then because we are inundated with them. Are you aware of the band Spandau Ballet? Because the Kemp brothers starred in the first ‘movie’ about the Krays, which is, kind of hilarious! And TRUE! (pun galore)
Oh that’s great Jordan, I can’t wait to read it!!!!!!! Don’t worry, my lazy arse is far fatter than yours and I go through phases on here, sometimes my fingers are on fire typing and sometimes I just can’t be arsed!
Having said that I can’t WAIT to read Chapter V!!!!!!! I love your Archway Chronicles so much Jordy! I’m alright cheers, it’s Friday so that gives me a reason to smile! 🙂
weekends are nice 🙂
I hope you like chapter V, be honest, tell me where it could be better
I personally think Tom Hardy would be good and Clive Owen too.
I agree that they’d both be good yes. I dunno, Tom Hardy just seems a bit too obvious though. I don’t think he’d do it anyway.
Clive Owen after Shoot Em Up? 🙂
Owen just looks how I’d picture Bond and he has the dry humour. I saw Spectre yesterday and loved it.
Excellent!!! I’ll check out your review. I assume there is one? 🙂
Yes there is, look forward to reading your thoughts.
Haha! Kims ❤ xxxxx
Then again, is there anything wrong with Jane Bond?
Oh no way, she’d always be on her period and giggling at kittens!!!
OMG, that is a movie I’d pay TOP dollar to see!!! XD
Seriously, you don’t think Naomie Harris could play Jane Bond?
I dunno, I don’t think any woman could play it really. It’s a man’s role baby! She is cool though.
I will have to sit this one out, Em. I can’t stand Bond films, and really don’t care if there is ever another Bond, let alone who it is. Thinking back to the original books though, I would have to say- if they ever need to make another one- and they don’t, then Matthew Goode gets my vote. (Not that I’m voting, you understand…)
As ever, Pete. x
That’s okay Pete 🙂 I don’t watch them either! Hope you’re well 🙂 x
Just looked up that guy, he’s good looking I’ll give him that!! Haha x
