It's probably the Height of everybody else, that's the problem
Can anyone name an action movie where the leading lady is taller than the hero and no attempt is made to hide it?
I don't remember calling anyone small.
We don't know if Craig's height has affected his Bond films, but there is certainly a possibility that actors and actresses have been rejected because they were too tall compared to Craig. I very much doubt this was ever the case wit the other Bond actors.
I guess there is such a thing as being too tall to play Bond, but in my opinion Bond can be really tall.
I can't see any problems with an actor Alexander Skarsgård's height (6' 4'').
But you did write:
I understand your point but Tom Hardy is hardly small...doesn’t seem to have affected Daniel Craig throughout his tenure as Bond either...
so my comments were certainly relelevant.
I haven't seen Tenet yet, so I have no idea if there are lots of full-figure shots of Debicki and John David Washington together. Can anyone tell us?
Is Oliver Stark of the TV series "9-1-1" a potential Bond? He's British and his age and height is near perfect - 29 years old and 6'2''. Stark plays a firefigther and claims he loves doing stunts and he does everything he's allowed to (80% of the stunts).
So far so good. But his CV doesn't look too impressive with some TV and movie work, but nothing that will impress critics. He's done no theatre.
His hair is the same colour as Roger Moore's and his face looks good, but other than a major birthmark near his left eye his facial feature are not particularely distinctive.
