    The new Bond is blond!


    He's a good actor. He's cute, but not early Connery cute...

    If Renee Zellweger put on all that weight to play Bridget Jones and Charlize Theron became ugly to play ugly, this man can very well dye his freaking hair. Even the Brawny Man guy became a brunet to look like the man on the package.

    Honestly, James Bonds have always looked quite differently, but let's just say a cartoonist should still be able to grasp them all in a single doodle, don't you think?

    Really, I think he'll do great, but it won't kill him to dye the hair.

    I'm reserving judgment until I see him play the part. Right now I just can't see him playing Bond, he just doesn't have that UMMPH that a man who plays Bond would have. I'm honestly worried this is going to be another Timothy Dalton. LOL

    ^ I actually liked Timothy Dalton.

    He was certainly better than Roger Moore.

    I don't think Dalton was given a fair shake.

    YEAH!!! Another Bond fan who thinks the same way I do!!

    I was also trying to figure out who this guy is. After reading on IMDB the only thing I have seen him in is Tomb Raider. I feel really old...this guy is my age, he should have to be older to play Bond, not a mere 37.

    As I understand it, his first Bond flick "Casino Royale" has Bond in his 30s not long after acquiring his "00" licence (it's based on the first Bond book) and they want to up the realism and scale back on the gadgets etc. So Craig could be great for the role if they are moving into more "Jason Bourne" territory...

    Wait... What?!? Dalton better than Moore?!? Ugh. I'm not a big Moore fan myself, but Dalton was terrible. He just had too weird of a look. Not the suave, sophisticated feel you need for Bond. I don't think Daniel Craig is, either, but we'll have to wait and see...

    Re: It's Official: The new Bond is ...

    I've been reading Ian Fleming's novels for the past few months, and I've been surprised at how completely different they are to the film counterparts. For a start, Bond is a completely different character - he isn't smooth and sophisticated, he's a charming, intelligent thug. An assassin. And bad things happen to him - he gets really roughed up in the books.
    And he's not that good looking, either, so in that respect I think Daniel Craig is quite a good choice. Not that he's ugly, by any stretch of the imagination (I'm no oil painting), but he's got a rough look to him, which i think will work well, as long as they get the character right!

    Iíll reserve judgment on him as Bond until after the movie comes outÖ That said, however, Iím really bummed that it wasnít Clive Owen. I was really rooting for him.

    And the world lets out a collective *yawn* I totally love the Bond movies but for some reason this "huge" announcement doesn't make me say "oh yeah, totally want to see the next one"...

    Re: It's Official: The new Bond is ...

    The LA Times did a piece on the search yesterday which I no longer have. The writer made a very good point about them going back to the original description of Bond in the books, ruggedly handsome, sexy. He also wrote that while Dalton and Connery fit the role the best in the looks department, Dalton never quite clicked because he always looked so uncomfortable in the suits or formal wear.
