    I recently saw a few shots from the James Bond movie Casino Royale and it wasen't that good. Daniel Craig looks shit..not at all lethal unlike the suave Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan. They should have made George Clooney the new Bond!
    By the ways when is Casino Royale releasing?

    November 17, and I'd rather see Woddy Allen play Bond than that mama's boy Clooney. I actually think it looks good, myself.

    Aki, from this female's pov, the new Bond boy is very hot. I may even have to go see my first Bond movie in decades, thanks to his studliness.

    He just doesn't look like James Bond to me. That said, I'm not a fan of Bond movies, anyway, so I don't really care. He was good in Layer Cake, though!

    I still dont get it how girls find him hot!! Even my cousin sister likes him!
    WHY DO GIRLS GO MAD OVER BLONDE MEN?:cuckoo:
    As I said he dosent look lethal enough and dosent seem to have a personality (unlike Brosnan). Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan are uncomparable.

    The guys who make the Bond flicks should also consider American superstars like Clooney , Cruise and Di Caprio and Bollywood superstars like Shahrukh and Amitabh. Why should it be the Brits always? I mean I know there is this tradition of British "Bond's" but why not try out a Yankee or an Asian superstar?

    Sorry Abbey N, but I don't like his looks. Wouldn't have particularly wanted Clooney to be Bond, either. I think they could have looked around for a better one. I wasn't real thrilled with Brosnan. I really liked Connery & R. Moore.

    Aki, I did not realize he was blonde. He doesn't look it from the previews. I actually prefer darker haired-men. But he's okay either way, lol.

    Who can explain why people are attracted to certain people? Personally, I think Britney Spears looks like a dopey bimbo, but she seems to have many admirers. :dunno:

    As for it being a Brit, I wouldn't dream of messing with that premise for Bond. Bond=British. The End.

    Anyone but Clooney. Connery was too old for me, much less the rest of you. Even Roger Moore has many years on me.

    I think, typically, British actors have a certain sophistocation about them that it's hard for American actors to fake, and I think that sophistocation is a huge part of the Bond character.

    Just for the sake of argument, what American actors could you see playing bond other than George Clooney?
