Jason Statham might be the greatest British actor of the 21st century with his fantastic accents that make you believe he is not English confused He should have been Bond no one handles action like him imo.

anyway..
He wasn't even considered as aBond (as far as I know) and for me wouldn't fit..
but for sure he would seem better than Craig messed

roughrider
Well...he's still young. There were looking seriously at Pierce Brosnon in 1986, before going with Timothy Dalton. Then when the francise went into hibernation, they came back to Brosnon! Things don't work out with Craig, maybe Statham becomes the front runner!

Clovie

I don't like the way he looks like.. actually Craig looks better than him. (netherless that he shouldn't be Bond)

Pandemoniac
Statham ain't no next Bond, but he sure as hell should have been the main char in xxx2! He might not have the charm, but he does has the attitude to be a lead 'goody' badass.

I'm not saying anything bad about YOU. All I say is that I don't agree with your point of view, and I'm terribly sorry if you took it personally.

I think he has plenty of charm. In Transporter for example.

Ironically, those which they considered or wanted to play the role, didn't want to.

The reports of Jackman turning down the 007 role is old news but below are some links. They wanted him, but he was already wrapped up with X3 and the Wolverine spin-off. Now we have Craig...

Me, and its TFP actually.

but you forget one newsitem, which of course when push comes to shove, I can't find. But it's Mi6.
The part where Jackman admits he faked the entire deal and that there never was contact with him and the Broccolis

I think your referring to (early) last year when he said the hype or rumor was created by him? Those are two different things....

What I'm talking about happened two months ago where he turned down the role according to reports.

from what I read, his friends said he did, he never commented on that

No problem,

Either way, thats besides the point. I was just correcting your earlier statement on him not being considered since apparently he was actually offered the role but turned it down.

yerssot
ah but you made one mistake TFP... his tremendous ego:

on NOT being approached, his publicist:
http://www.mi6.co.uk/news/index.php?itemid=1152 :
"Hugh has never officially been approached to play the role of James Bond", he said, clearing up the latest tabloid talk and Jackmania hype.

on starting the 'Bond rumour':
http://www.mi6.co.uk/news/index.php?itemid=1299 :
"I started the rumor, I mean, who wouldn`t want to play James Bond?"



And yes, I believe a website as mi6 has more value than a regular movie-based website for the simple reason that Mi6 does nothing but focus on Bond news.

Also the original source of the reports was not a movie-based website, it was newspaper, 'The Melbourne Age'.
