    But all this is premature. Craig has signed on for the next 2 films (which are reportedly one story split into 2 movies, so may do a Hobbit/Harry Potter/LOTR type shoot and get it all in one)

    By the time those role around: Elba, Fass, Hardy, etc will be a few years older and a new list of candidates will enter the conversation.
    Agree totally on who will be best fit in a few years age wise, and thinking outside the box I'll toss Matt Smith's name out there first. A few years seasoning and a grown up hair cut and he might have what it takes.

    It's a tough one; since at the end of the day it's acting. I remember getting frustated with the fans who DEMANDED that Captain America be played by an America; and that any non-American would be offensive. It think being British helps "get" the character (the same way being British makes the humour of Noel Coward easier to deliver on stage). But the actor could be non-British. Cate Blanchett made an amazing Elizabeth I. Renee Zellweger perfectly captured a classic English Rose as Bridget Jones. It can be done.

    I would support Hardy as a villain... but what a REALLY want is a female villain. I don't mean femme fatale sidekick; I mean MAIN villain. I don't think we've ever had a main villain be female... closest we got was Elektra King; and you could argue Reynard was the main villain (hence why he had the final showdown, long after she was dead).

    Tilda Swinton would be top of my list!

    Exactly. Let's wait until Craig has only one film left before we try and have another actor jump in his grave.

    Hmmmmm... I would rather Martin Freeman, but soon he will be too famous (SO EXCITED for [I]the Hobbit [/I](2012)). Cillian Murphy would make a cool Bond... and an even more AWESOME side-kick villain.

    IF Christopher Nolan is hired as director... maybe Cillian Murphy will pop-up as a villain. Nolan likes reusing his casts...

    In the crazy cool hypothetical chance that Nolan does take over.
    What a cool list of regular collaborators to choose from. Talk about potential villains...Cillian Murphy! Gary Oldman! Morgan Freeman! Hardy! Liam "Set of Skills" Neeson! Christian Bale! Ken Watanabe! JGL! Michael freakin' Caine!

    That would rock.

    I said this before in a different thread I believe. Here's how I think a Chris Nolan Bond movie would go, cast wise.

    Bond = Christian Bale
    M = Michael Caine
    Q = Cillian Murphy
    Bad Guy = Tom Hardy
    Obligatory American Bond buddy = JGL
    Moneypenny = Marion Cotillard

    The only hiccup in this cast is whether or not Bale would want to tie himself down to another franchise after moving on past Batman
    Eh, Comics is a pretty cool guy...

    That makes a bit more sense, really.

    Yeah, a lot can (and will) happen before they decide where they're going with the third movie from now, which will be a solid 4 to 6 years down the road. It's certainly interesting speculation, though.

    Have there actually been any racist reactions? I don't think race matters since all the different Bonds we've seen..they aren't all supposed to be the same dude right?(I thought maybe a few who were played by diff actors were intended to be the same, but not every single one) With that in mind I don't see why Bond couldn't be black or asian or spanish, etc.

    Im not sure Nolan is interested IMO...he just spent the better part of a decade doing Batman, kind of figured he wants to go back to doing his own stuff

    Nolan would ruin Bond.

    I would rather see Martin Campbell direct another entry.

    Neveldine/Taylor would be an interesting choice.
