Henry Cavill works as an SAS Bond who fought in the Middle East during the Iraq/Afghanistan war and moved his way into MI6. His physique is simply too bulky to work around another back story. Also, his body doesn't fit an alcoholic character that enjoys fine food. You can be in good shape while fooling around a bit but you will not look like him. Think he'd have to slim down from that perspective but I'm probably overthinking it.

I agree that Cavill is way too big to be Bond at the moment. Craig is obviously muscular but Cavill has way a more commanding build that works perfectly for Superman but probably not for Bond.

I'm sure if asked he could slim down and go for a more everyman look. I think he'd do a great job and hope he gets the part after Craig.

Cavill can absolutely be less bulky - look at the change Craig underwent between CR and QoS. It's all about diet and workout regimen. I have always thought that Cavill would be a solid choice - I liked him for CR when he was 23! Now he's the perfect age.

Still, I'd like to see Tom Hiddleston have a go as well.

I like Philip Winchester from Strike Back. Anyone suggest him yet?

Not now. He's only 22, but Jack Rowan looks like he could be a good future Bond ajb007/smile

There's an essence of young Connery about him.

He has to remain ripped for his ongoing role as Geralt in the Witcher. No way that show doesn’t last years and years.

Not seeing the Connery thing so much but that doesn't mean he can't be Bond. Like so many of the potential Bonds, he could really benefit from some maturity. There's a bit of "softness" that is not befitting a military veteran turned intelligence operative who is now a "00". Even though Cavill was only 23 when being seriously considered for CR, IMO, he may have still been a bit too young, but he did not appear "soft".

I don't see the resemblence to Connery either. Sorry. I see a handsome young man with dark hair, that's all. Like HowardB I can't say this actor will never be Bond, but I can't see much potential now.

Oh really I guess I'm the only one who sees it, but as I said above, I don't see him as the next 007, but definitely a future 007.

One of my basic rules of casting James Bond:
If you look like you could be in a Boy Band you should not be cast as James Bond. ajb007/lol  ajb007/martini

Re: Poll: Who would you like to be the next James Bond in Bond 26?

I don't know, you can see a bit of cold detachment in his eyes, could be good in the future.  As mentioned though, at least 10 years too young I think for the character.

We'll see. We can all be wrong in these matters. Before CR I wanted Dominic West as Bond. Now he thinks it's time a trans person is cast in the role  ajb007/amazed  ajb007/amazed  ajb007/amazed

For what it's worth, as I never predict these correctly:  Jack O'Connell or Tom Hughes would be my tips.

However, I still think Daniel has at least one more in him after No Time to Die.
