What can he do that he hasn't already? Oh well, Bond on the internet! He could stop 133t haXX0r5 and seduce ladies through chatrooms. Nah oh well I'll probably see it anyway. But Die Another Day? What kind of a title is that? I'm sure give just an ounce more time I could think of a better title. Like umm..... well maybe I'd have to read the script first.

I got some more stuff from upcomingmovies.com (http://www.upcomingmovies.com) . The plot is going to be something to do a Korean General who can change his appearance.

Maybe the next Bond will be... :rolleyes:... Bruce Willis! :D

Nah, he doesn't do that kind of action. Die Hard is not Octopussy.

maybe it could be --------danny de vito!! :eek:


maybe they can have.....tom cruise.....or keanu reeves:confused:

03-13-2002, 08:04 PM
Brosnan still has a couple more good movie days. Tom Cruise and Keanu Reeves are getting old. Ok they haven't done Korea yet and they haven't done a shapeshifter yet. I hope that it won't be too sci-fi for Bond.

Who will be the next Bond?:confused:

03-13-2002, 10:01 PM
Attack of the Clones..... Die another Day..... what happens to people this days!? :eek: :(

I think the next actor to play Bond should be one of the following (not in any order)

Jason Patrick
Hugh Jackman (he should put on weight for the role)
The bad guy from "The Net" (movie with Sandra Bullock)
James Marsden (when he's a bit older)
Jude Law (will need to put on some weight)
Kevin Spacey
Paul Walker
William Baldwin

I personally hope they go with an unknown actor like Lucas did with Hayden Christenson for Ep2

Shapeshifter? Huh? :confused: I don't think that's what it means. I believe it just ment that the man is an expert at disguise and can make himself look like anyone that way.

BTW, I think that Ewan McGregor could make a great Bond. :) At first is sounds absurd but think about it. He cleans up well! :D

03-14-2002, 03:34 AM
Rhett...It would be a long shot for McGregor but he could pull it off....

I always hoped Sam Neil would have gotten the part but Dalton got it instead

03-14-2002, 05:44 AM
by the time he gets old enough, I thinkn Josh Hartnett will get it. He is the newest Ladies' man!

03-14-2002, 10:22 AM
Why are you considering yankees to play James Bond??? PLEASE!!! Get real!!! :rolleyes: You have no class!


03-14-2002, 10:47 AM
oh, you will do it?

03-14-2002, 10:51 AM
Me? No, but thank you considering me worthy of the role. :cool:

03-14-2002, 10:52 AM
Americans trying to emulate the English accent is absolutley cringeworthy.

[pay no attention]Blimey! Wha ya sayun dat fo guvnah? [/pay no attention]

Only UK-born actors can play Bond. That's a rule.

03-14-2002, 10:06 PM
is it a rule or is it just preferred that way???

and artoo what do you mean by cruise and reeves getting old, do you know how old brosnan is??

03-14-2002, 11:09 PM
younger than those 2. Also remember how long Sean Connery was Bond? Also you have to take into account the quality of makeup these days. Remember the time when we were wondering if Harrison Ford would play in Episodes 7-9? Also you have to at least look British. Reeves and Cruise aren't that british looking. At least not compared to some actors. Yep Brosnan has at least 2 Bonds left in him.... hopefully.:rolleyes:

03-15-2002, 12:15 AM
Please let there be hot chicks in this film.:rolleyes:

03-15-2002, 01:39 AM
Halle Berry and Roseamund Pike are in Bond 20 and are both pretty good looking...

As for Josh Hartnett being Bond...well he has the look and the class but his voice is too deep and it would be very unlikely that he would be able to pull off an English accent....

Bond should not have to be played by someone from the UK but I would prefer it if they were....

Brosnan is Irish, Connery is Scottish, Moore is English, Dalton is ???? and Lezenby could be seen as British in a way because he is Australian.

03-15-2002, 06:21 AM
Dalton is English. Lets forget about Lezenby cuz he was atrocious.

03-15-2002, 06:56 AM
I never like Bond. (sorry to all those fans out there!) I mean, guns, sex, killing, kissing, etc. etc. Half that list is love stuff! Bad mixturre if you ask me.

03-15-2002, 05:16 PM
I liked Lazenby...well he was better than Dalton (Sam Neil should have gotten the role instead of Dalton)

Anyways...Lazenby was stuck in a movie which had a bad script and a shocking leading lady (she wasnt hot)....

And the editing of the film was atrocious (just look at the first fight scene on the beach..ahhh)

03-15-2002, 07:30 PM
Halle Berry? yowza, she is a hot little vixen.:cool:
