Why would they drop Pierce Brosnan for this guy?

Jackman's my choice. McGregor's too short for the role (though he would be far better than this loser).

All bets are off about the new James Bond - it looks like Pierce Brosnan may be back as the suave super spy after all. According to Internet reports, Sony bosses want Brosnan to return as 007 in the next Bond film Casino Royale, and they're keen for him to star in one more movie after that. A source tells website Darkhorizons.Com, "All the stuff we heard about Brosnan being out is just a ploy from both camps. The negotiations between Brosnan and Eon (Bond production company) came to an end because, in the last year, things were up in the air, thanks to all the organizational changes taking place. Brosnan/Eon camps are still going through the motions of bluffing each other: an echo of the old poker game that Cubby Broccoli (former Bond boss) went through with Roger Moore - Moore frequently announced that he wouldn't be back. The mood around Sony is that Brosnan will be back. Hence, the reluctance of the filmmakers to come right out and announce that they have parted ways with Brosnan. Sony are not in a gambling mood. They could lose more with an unknown actor, or with an experienced but unpopular actor. They're well aware that you just can't place any actor in this role."

Cool! George Lazenby won't have to suffer as "the worst Bond" much longer.

Hmmm...He reminds me a little of George Lazenby. I don't think that I will like him as much as Brosnan, though.

This guy is 37? He looks older than Brosnan (52). I thought they wanted a younger Bond.

IMO he doesn't have the look. The face looks familiar but I've only seen one of his movies and don't remember him from it.

He was a good villain in Road to Perdition.

But I don't see him as Bond.

Doesnt look the part at all. I was really hoping that Clive Owen would end up with it but i guess he may be geting too popular to have accepted it.

Looks like Bond is on his way back to the embarassing obscurity of the 80's.

I'll be honest, I haven't seen a Bond film in ages. I can't watch that goofiness. It stopped for me when the villains strategically placed a 1 inch steel cable at the exact height of the BMW hood ornament saw in some stupid film several years ago. Not only was everything a giant coincidence, but the saw managed to cut through the cable instantaneously at 50 MPH.

Bond films have always been goofy.

Dude, Roger Moore was a waste. Live and Let Die was the only decent Bond film he appeared in, then it went down hill from there.

I'll take Timothy Dalton over Moore any day of the week. You knew Dalton wouldn't think twice about killing the bad guy - definitely the most stone cold killer of the Bondsmen.

He was a pussy crybaby begging the villain not to kill him in the last movie. Plus Dalton has all the warmth and charm of a pet rock.

Roger Moore was 63 when he made his last Bond film, the memorably horrible View to a Kill. He was actually older than Sean Connery.

Not gonna happen: http://www.darkhorizons.com/news05/050406i.php

British actor Daniel Craig has said he was not going to be the next James Bond, following a flurry of stories today claiming he had won the part reports The Statesman.

The Sun today claimed that Craig had been offered a three-film deal by producer Barbara Broccoli starting with the upcoming "Casino Royale". A spokeswoman for the star denied the reports but wouldn't comment further. Eon Productions, which makes the Bond movies, also refused to comment.

BBC News has been fed up with all the speculation and spoke with Eon directly, asking when in the world they will comment on this latest talk. Their official response - "We're waiting for our director [Martin Campbell] to finish the film he's currently working on [The Lgend of Zorro]. Then I'm sure we'll be commenting a lot on all sorts of things" said a spokesperson.

Lazenby actually was a good Bond. He had to follow the best though.
