Who should the next bond be?

As we know every actor who has played Bond is eventually replaced by another actor, now I know we're probably way off from Bond 23 and Craig I believe will be in that but once he's gone who do you think would make the next great Bond?

Gotta go with Clive Owen. Can't think of any actor right now that fits the role more perfectly.

Craig got trashed because he "didn't fit the role" but now most people are gagging over him.

True. I'm not saying that Craig shouldn't be Bond. I like him in the role. However, if he does decide to move on then I think Owen would be a logical replacement.

Neither did I. I'm just saying that 99.9% didn't like him at first and now he's considered one of the best... So saying who should succeed him depends on looks? actor's ability? ... ?

I was one of the small % who actually liked Craig when it was announced he would play Bond, so bla. stick out tongue Same for Catherine Tate when she was announced as the Doctor's companion in Doctor Who, since Doctor Who was brought up in here. stick out tongue

I'd wish he would go on to play Bond for a long time actually.

Clive Owen I could live with but not too big on him. Gerard Butler maybe. Has to be a British actor though, always.

I like the idea of Clive Owen playing Bond, but i do not see it happening. I for one hope that Daniel stays in the role for some time to come.

Don't want to think about that. Craig's my favorite Bond.

I think Christian Bale could maybe pull it off. Anyone else think so?

Hugh Jackman should take over when Craig is done. He'll be in his mid-40s by then; perfect age for a veteran Bond. He can't play Wolverine forever; he'll eventually look a little too old for a character that is virtually immortal.

Mid-40's is too old to play Bond.

George Lazenby was from Australia. Pierce Brosnan is from Ireland.

Roger Moore took over Bond when he was 45.
Both Timothy Dalton & Pierce Brosnan were in their early 40's when they started playing Bond.
Timothy Dalton said he was offered the Bond part when he was in his 20's (when the transition from Sean Connery to his eventual successor - Moore - was becoming a rocky road), but says he felt too young for the role, that Bond should be a man in his early 40's, and was glad he waited.

Hugh Jackman was born to English parents in Oz, and I think has done appropriate English accents in other parts. And he's so fit he looks younger than whatever his age is.

And for those still hoping for Clive Owen, he's already 45. If Daniel Craig does even two more movies, he'll be in his 50's before he could take over.

Moore was 58 when he stopped playing Bond! That is why the new one shouldn't be too old. If you look at Brosnan, he already had some grey hair in Die Another Day.

They need someone in the end 30's so that they can give Bond some continuity again by using the same actor in a few movies with a wider story arch. If you pick someone who is 40 he can go 10 years (if you discount the retarded Moore period)... so he can do 3 movies, 4 is already pushing it. If you pick someone who is 35, he can do 5 movies and thus better grow into character and the writers can make a massive storyline (like they tried with the Solace organisation) to take place over those 5 movies.
