  1. Gerard Butler would make a perfect James Bond because of his Scottish background and he can pull off some great action scenes.

  2. Don't care who the next Bond is as long as they get Craig and Judy Dench out of there ASAP!!! BTW, Craig would make an excellent Vladimir Putin in the Donald Trump story

  3. Yeah , Idris Alba. Love him as a person, and actor and work . Not James Bond. Sorry. PC doesn't make it right. Why no Christian Bale ?  I like Fassbender off this list.

  4. Bond is a white brit, not black, not  American. End of. Oh and for the idiotic woman who said the other day that there should be a female Bond, Go stick your stupid head in the oven .

  5. surprised henry cavill wasnt mentioned. although not my fav actor i believe he was and is under serious consideration for the role of 007.

  6. Don't agree with this list. None of these actors are worthy of Bond role none in my opinion have the look of sophistication nor charm.

  7. Shaft should never be played by a white guy (or Samuel L. Jackson) and Bond should not be played by a black guy…they just would not be Shaft or Bond because that is not who they are.

  8. According to Ms Fleming, he always wanted a woman as 007 , back in the days it was difficult for the audience, but now it will me perfect , plus his dream will come true….

  9. daniel craig was the hardest bullheaded bond ever. brosnan (my favorite) was the funnest to watch and funny. connery was the asshole with good charm and charisma who the book describes him as. and roger moore was meh. if i didnt mention any other bonds its cause they sucked. everyone though craig wouldnt be good he has blonde hair….he turned out to be the toughest bond yet. my thoughts on a badass franchise.

  10. Lewis Collins was the Bond that never was.He was thought to be too violent for that time period. Timothy Dalton got the part instead.
