First, there's no indication anywhere that Daniel Craig is planning on passing the torch, so don't fret.
Now, let's say that Daniel Craig stopped playing Bond after Quantum of Solace. What actors would you look at for the role of James Bond?
My pick is Clive Owen. He's got the look, he's played similar roles, and I think he'd fall into that tough guy with class role really nicely. Plus, he's a fine actor and could carry the heavier role of Bond that Craig set up nicely.
I don't know, but i remember before Craig was announced, they had floated up some pretty terrible names. Russel Crow, for one. I like most of his movies, but who ever came up with him as an idea for Bond should be beaten to death with a wet noodle.
When I saw Jason Isaacs in "The Patriot", the thought occurred to me that he would have made a good Bond. He has that dashing, yet achingly English quality about him. Plus, he actually looks like Bond from the books.
i agree with Benjamin to some extent. Someone who's maybe a little bit known, like Craig, works well. That way you don't have any preconceived notions of what he's going to do. But at the same time, if you get an actor who hasn't been in anything too formulaic it can work, too. For instance, I'd NEVER pick someone like Hugh Jackman, who's got Wolverine written all over him now and you're never going to see him as BOND, you're going to see him as Hugh Jackman as Bond.
Jason Isaacs... that could be interesting! I liked him in the Patriot (I mean, I hated him, but loved his acting :) ) and he's definitely got enough of an edge to him to play a "blunt object" with some class. I'd like to see that.
I'm not familiar with Ben Browder, though it looks as if he was on Stargate? Have to admit I haven't watched that.
What of an actor that moves beyond the preconceived notions of Bond in book or screen? What if Flemming sketched his ideal Bond as an African of Asian? I would really like to see the Bond acting franchise extended past Caucasian actors.
I think they should just stick to the books and not change the ethnicity of Bond. But I also think they should have stuck to the 1950s like in the books too. But who knows. I forget his name but the black guy from the Green Mile was excellent as Kingpin in "Daredevil" and cannot think of any actor who would have fit that role better.

Hello Gentlemen.I'm very excited to say that I'm down about 50 pounds in the last 5 or so months. I'm still losing. I was very overweight, and I decided to do something about it. I'd like to lose about 20 more pounds if at all possible. I stopped eating as much. I took up cooking. As a 23-year-old bachelor, I can attest that those of my species don't eat the greatest. I set out to break that stereotype. I eat well, but I control what I put in the tank, so to speak. Being creative in my kitchen…See More

Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world.
