If you had the chance to choose any actor to portray James Bond who would you choose and why? You cannot select anyone that has already portrayed him.

Believe or not, I am atching Casino Royale right now. I was going to nominate Daniel Craig but I can't because he is already a bond. I think I will have to nominate Jason Statham. He is a good actor and he is good with martial arts.

Clive Owen. I've always thought he would make a great James Bond. And last night my wife and I saw DUPLICITY where he co-stars with Julia Roberts. There'a a scene in New York's Grand Central Station where he's following Julia Roberts and the way he's dressed and the way his hair cut made my wife say to me: "he looks just like James Bond" and a woman sitting in the row in front of us turned around and whispered; "I was was just thinking the same thing!"

He's done many dramas so we know he can do that. And in films such as SIN CITY and SHOOT 'EM UP he's proved he can do action as well. He deserves a shot as Bond.

Owen and Statham would probably both be good.

Christian Bale would be great at it - Bond is kind of like Bruce Wayne and Batman mixed together.

I agree that Christian Bale would be a great Bond. He has charisma and he's dry.
Judging by the clip of him yelling at the crew, he wouldn't take any shit.

HArrison ford. We have seen from his whole carreer that he has action and great acting nailed down. Though he'll have problems trying to sound like a brit

I also would have liked to have seen either Sean Bean or Colin Salmon take over the role of James Bond.

Sean Bean played the bad guy in GOLDENEYE and I believe he actually did a screen test when Pierce Brosnan left and the search was on for a new Bond.

Pierce Brosnan himself recommended that Colin Salmon take over as James Bond. Colin Salmon played Charles Robinson in all of Brosnan's Bond movies. But I suppose that the idea of a black James Bond was considered too out there. Salmon also was thisclose to being the first black Doctor Who back in 2008.

I agree with DL's suggestions of Clive Owen and Sean Bean. I think they are both great actors and could both pull Bond off fantastically.

Clive Owen has the 'calm and cool' disposition about him that Bond personifies, and Sean Bean can pull off the more 'intense and calculating' aspect of Bond in my mind.

And I agree with Vincent's agreement with DL's suggestions. :hah: If not for the screen test, I would have thought that Bean (or any other previous Bond villain) wouldn't be considered for the role.
