Over the years, a lot of hunky dudes have played James Bond. Sometimes it’s campy, sometimes it’s dark, but Bond is always fun and always a badass. The super hunky, Daniel Craig, has been doing a great job playing Bond for the past few years, but I kind of feel like he’s done all that he can with the franchise.
So, if they’re going to keep going with Bond (which of course they will as it’s the franchise that will never die), here are 10 actors who I think could really add some pizazz to the character. Yes, I said “pizazz”, but, to be fair, I recently watched an episode of “Jem and the Holograms” soooo….
There has never been a black Bond, and why the fuck not? Idris is a sexy, badass, mature man. If he can play Nelson Mandela, I think he can handle Bond.
Tom Hardy is very sexy and has time and time again proven that he can successfully pull off action roles, while also bringing depth to his characters. He can be subtle, he can be intense, and maybe if he played Bond Christopher Nolan would direct it (dreams could come true).
A FEMALE BOND?! Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. Maybe she’s treat dudes the way Bond traditionally treats women, or maybe she’d be a badass lesbian, either way it’s something I could get down with, and Jaimie Alexander has proven in all her movies she’s a sexy bad bitch who would totally take her martini shaken, not stirred.
Well…I mean..come on. He’s pretty much the most obvious choice for the next James Bond. Give me a break.
It might seem weird, and I know Bond is traditionally from the UK, but if they were to completely re-invent the series, couldn’t you just see JGL as a ruthless American Bond with a soft side he hides under his jaded bad boy facade? Yeah, I could dig that.
I know with Craig’s Bond they explored the origins of James Bond, but what if they did his earlier years? Like early-late 20’s Bond? What made him choose this career path? We could always do with more backstory and Nicholas Hoult would be a great young Bond.
Are you looking at the above picture? The argument makes itself.
If Colin Farrell played Bond the character would be rowdier, a bigger womanizer (if possible), a heavier drinker, and a dirtier fighter. Yeah, I think I’d enjoy that.
He’s dark, he’s classy, he’s sexy, he’s British, and he looks good in a suit. I mean, what more do you need?
Well, if I’m going to suggest a girl to play Bond I obviously can’t leave out the ultimate British bad bitch: Kate Beckinsale. If anyone could play a female bond, it’s this broad.
