I've seen a couple of seasons of Banchee and I think she's great in it!

Come on Caterina, use the loo like a normal person, you're not an animal.

I genuinely don't know how anyone signed off on that shot. There's even a bucket on the floor! ajb007/biggrin

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

She is wonderful in CR-06, but I thought she got a delicious part to play as the French Mistress
in St Trinians. Brilliant reboot that film. Pity about Frittons Gold.

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

Season 1 is really good.  Seasons 2 and 3 are awesome.  Season 4 is a tad weak but still ends the story in a satisfying enough way.

edited to add: for those of you who have seen the Amazon Prime adaptation of THE BOYS, the actor who plays Homelander on that show is the lead on BANSHEE.  He's awesome on both and, if I'm being honest with myself, he'd make a pretty decent Bond.

Antony Starr has some of the qualities we look for in a Bond actor, but he's already 45 years old. I also suspect the reason he usually has beard is the way he looks like he's trying to hide that he just took a large bite of the food.  ajb007/lol

Here he is in THE BOYS as the 'superhero' Homelander:

He's got the look, I think.  Didn't know he was already in his 40s, though.

If you haven't watched it, give THE BOYS a go.  It's pretty wild, and it's probably 100% accurate as to how superheroes would actually be in the real world (complete jerks).

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

Antony Starr was born in 1975, so I'd say he's too old. I seem to remember reading somewhere that he was considered for James James Bond in 2006.

60

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

He looks younger than 45, though.  Heck, I'm 50 and can pass for late 30s.

He's a fun actor.  He's obviously having a real hoot in THE BOYS.

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

He looks young for his age, yes. But Bond26 won't be launched before 2024(at best). Bond actors start up with a three movie deal, so he won't bee finished playing Bond until 2030 at the earliest. He'll be 55 by then and who knows how he'll look then?

62

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

Roger Moore was 45 shooting LALD. Didn't look it at all. He was 3 years older than Connery and looked 10 years younger.

I've never minded a Bond actor getting to 50 or so provided he started younger. Moore wasn't too old in TSWLM, for instance.

64

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

He does look quite a lot like Peter Mandelson in that first one, but I can dig it.

65

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

Yes, it's entireøy possible Antony Starr looks young enough in 2030, but is it a bet worth taking? And remember that's a best case scenario. At the pace they're making Bond movies now he's likely to be at least 60 when he makes Bond28. Do you remember how Roget Moore looked in AVTAK?

66

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

Young for a man pushing 60. Too old to be James Bond.

67

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

That's right. When we discuss actors who can be James Bond we have to remember to think 15-20 years  ahead, not just how they are today.

Honestly, Moore looked GREAT in AVTAK, much better than he did in OP.  I'm sure the plastic surgery helped, but he also looked fairly fit and trim in general.

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

BANSHEE was one of the greatest TV series of all time. 4 seasons of raunchy sex and undiluted violence with a fabulous villain portrayed by Ulrich Thomson, who would be perfect for a Bond adversary.

The gorgeous Lili Simmons played his niece - surely a Bond girl in the future?
