I don't think anyone truly believes that Daniel is 5ft 10 really. Actors bios tend towards the 'optimistic'. I think that it's likely that Daniel is also 5ft 9 barefoot.i don't think that height itself would count against him. He would not be my first choice as I think that a return towards the Archetype is in order. However like Craig he has some great qualities and would be a continuation of the current interpretation. His role in Inception could be viewed as a Bond tryout and I thought he was great in it.

Orlando Bloom: "I would love to be Bond."

I guess that could work, although he's now 40 years old - I guess he can do two to three films.

Not sure if EON can afford him, though  ajb007/lol

Joanna Lumley and I agree on Idris Elba - he's a fine actor and movie star, but he simply doesn't fit the description of the character in the books (and he's too old too)

Elba will go down in history as Daniel Craig's replacement, with Craig's actual replacement as Bond number 8. People have been asking me for a few years now when Elba's Bond film is coming out.

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

I think Elba said it best when he acknowledged that whatever marginal chance he might have had of becoming Bond was destroyed by the media's wild speculation about him becoming Bond. I doubt anyone ever seriously considered him, but he's right that the whole thing burned itself out.

And to Matt's point, people ask me all the time if I'm excited about Elba as Bond.  ajb007/lol

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

I'm guessing that EON will entice Craig back for a swansong, which means that by the time EON starts seriously looking for a new Bond Elba will be too old anyway.

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

Tom Hardy has been cast as Eddie Brock in Venom (2018) so, with filming, and the obvious promotion that Sony will want (need) Hardy to do for this film, this could potentially rule him out of Bond.

I'm part of the Tom Hardy club. I think he'd be perfect for the role

I'd bet if you told them Elba's Bond film already came out last year, it was called  "007 In New York", it was a huge success and he's signed for the next 5 films, they'd be gullible enough to believe it.

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

I'm watching the new season of Polare,  and I'm reminded of what a melodic and dark voice Aidan Turner has. I have seen a couple of interviews of Charlie Hunnan and I seem to remember his natural speaking voice is..... less masculine. What do you think?

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

I think "And then there were none" was Turner's "audition"  for Bond,  just as "Layer Cake"  was Craig's.

If Turner failed it, does that mean Hiddleston passed? ajb007/shifty  ajb007/martini

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

I think a good voice is one of many qualities a Bond actor should have.  I think all the Bond actors have/had good voice,  but the least good is Brosnan. I think his voice can at times sound too nasal.

I would be fine with Hiddleston if Craig has moved on. Of all the rumored candidates he was my favorite by a slight margin over Turner.
I can see EON preferring to go with someone who already has a good bit of notoriety rather than a complete unknown to follow a hugely successful and popular Bond like Craig. The combination of Hiddleston's recognition as part of the hugely successful Marvel film's, The Night Manager Series, and the very popular Kong film along with his more "Classic" cinematic Bond appearance could give him instant credibility with the general public.

He's also a pretty good actor who has the chops to take it in a lot of different directions.

While I think aidan Turner is one of the better candidates, he isn't the most masculine of them. Perhaps it's the jaw?
