I just read an article suggesting Cillian Murphy may be the next James Bond. I'm not sure about this myself, he has acted in some good films and tv, from 28 Days Later through to Peaky Blinders, including a film Red Eye I think it was where he played a very intimidating and creepy character very well. Maybe a bit too creepy for a James Bond and not sure about the physique either, although maybe its time for a very different Bond.

Just been reading about it after you posted this Vintage

Sure he would be fine and he is still behind others like Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy and Richard Madden.

Tom Hiddleston would be a shitty Bond. I’d go with Madden or even Kit Harrington tbh, the others are all 40+ and it’s about time they had some younger blood in the role.

I agree Idris Elba would have been a great Bond, he has the presence and the style.

Ian Fleming, [who invented Bond] described him as 30 something White Man,and who was Commander in the Royal Navy and carried out "special duties" for MI5.Idris does not fit this description , although a good acter .

I'm pretty certain that the new James Bond will be an Inuit transsexual medicine man who has identified himself as female and now wishes to be called Doris.

I've rather lost the plot on Nigel Moneypenny.........

Artistic licence Nicko....Fleming wrote M based on his male superior from when he worked in Navy intelligence, yet Judy Dench played M is several Bond films.

Point taken, so why did he not write into the books a female "M"

As this was a socialliy different time frame

Hence do people want to cast themselves based on flemminings sexist stance of the past or move with the times

The reality is, Bond is fiction and the reality is people from a nationalistic view point. Hold him as an icon

The irony here, is when Bond was cast, it was Sean Connery. Who is a Scottish and a wife beater

So lets ask who now inspires to be Bond?

An early(ish) sign of "equality and diversity" in the entertainment industry, perchance?

And yes, she was bloody good in the role.

the other issue with Flemming bond compared to Hollywood bond, is that Hollywood bond is kept 'modern' Flemming never had mobile phones etc either, the new films are not really based on the books

I have said it before I think they need to tweak the 'Bond' backstory, make it so 'James Bond' is the agents code name. (like the Kingsmen franchise use the names of knights of the round table) this explains all the different actors and the fact that he'd be 100 years old by now if it were still the same guy.

Same goes with M or any other character that want to have a persistent name

I say Liam Hemsworth
Give him a chance to outshine chris for once .. Being Bond is one of the few roles that could do it

New James Bond 090518-liam-hemsworth-tout

he does look like a more traditional Bond
