Re: Owen, Clive Owen

Glad to see I'm not the only one who has reservations about Mr. Pattison. I don't want to be seen as picking on the little guy!

Pattinson would be 30 then which may be to young but Lazenby was 30 for OHMSS and Connery was 32 for Dr. No.

He could be a real candidate.

Re: Owen, Clive Owen

I really like Robert Pattinson these days (I get the impression he wants to be serious with Water for Elephants, Queen of the Desert, etc. and is pretty over Twilight since around the 2nd film). That said, I don't think he fits Bond. He has a reserved polish to him that doesn't fit the character well and I think the Twilight fame would kill his chances anyways.

Sure wish Pattinson had been cast as the male lead in Anna Karenina though. He would have been way better than the guy who dyed his hair blond for it and looked like an unappealing grump for the whole film. No one believed Keira Knightley found that guy irresistible.

Re: Owen, Clive Owen

Unless Daniel Craig gets hit by a truck in the next couple of years,  these actors, collectively, stand a zero chance of being the next Bond.  If you figure Bond 24 and 25 come out in 2015 and 2018 the next Bond will be introduced in 2021, at the earliest.  He'll probably be about 32-36, which means he's currently in his mid-twenties.  Maybe he's done plays, some commercials and a small role or two in indie productions.  He's not anybody you've ever heard of.

I'd say with Skyfall. It's D Craig's gig until He no longer wants It.

Wasn't Daniel Craig in some rather big productions 8 years prior to Bond? He didn't have massive roles or anything but he was still working in some big films (Elizabeth with Cate Blanchett comes to mind)

I do generally agree with you though. The next Bond could pretty much be anyone it could even be someone who's just started acting in the 2012 year (It was 8 years between Connery's start and his first) it could be a model with minimal acting ability like Lazenby or it could be someone already established like Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig were.

I'm personally hoping for an unknown Actor to take over the role, launch a career that way.

Clive PLEASE!
But... this guy looks qualified.

Personally i think he might be okay as Bond a few people even see him being the new batman now i am a big Adkins fan but i dont know if i could see him as a Bond.

Re: Owen, Clive Owen

Clive is too old now....

The next bond will depend on when D. Craig is no longer doing the role.   He looked a lot older in Skyfall (but still super fit) while some of the other actors like Pierce Brosnan aged a whole heck of a lot better. 

As for my personal view, the movie bond is best expressed by a young Connery or Pierce Brosnan.   If D. Craig was "hit by a bus" I would say Fassbender would be the ideal bond (Not sure who said he looks like a Nazi Pedophile, most girls i know love him.) and if its say, 2018 when we are looking at the next bond I will throw out Joel Edgerton as a option.

I agree, but hope that the lure of lucre does not mean we get into AVTAK territory. I think he said somewhere that he was happy to be Bond 'as long as my knees hold up' I think and hope that he has too much integrity as an actor to become another embarrassingly aged Bond. Pierce had at most one film left in him, and I think the same of Daniel.

I think he's very dedicated, and I believe after one more he'll realise he's almost 50, and he will pull a Dalton & pass the baton.

I agree. He's no fool, and I feel he would not want to outstay his welcome, or look too old to be convincing. I think he has a good deal of integrity about his craft. One more and out would suit me fine.

How confident are we in saying that he was almost Bond in 2006?

My Top 10 Bonds: Octopussy, Goldeneye, From Russia With Love, Tomorrow Never Dies, Licence to Kill, For Your Eyes Only, The Living Daylights, The Spy Who Loved Me, Goldfinger and Moonraker.

From memory I think it never got beyond explority talks. The issue was that he wanted 'Points 'and not just a fee so it never progressed very far.
