    I don't think he's a good match. He's too rugged, too bad boi.

    I'd like to see Mr Fassbender as the next Bond.

    Too rough looking, Bond is supposed to have that public school ethos, being a bit of a toff who can fight.

    Too short and stocky, just like Hiddlestone was too skinny. Fassbender too intense imo. I think Craig will do a couple more when he has recovered and been offerred a mahoosive pay cheque.

    Hiddleston..I agree. I did think of him but I think he'd be better a villain.

    This scene is why I think fassbender

    Idris Elba is black. James Bond is white. He doesn't fit the character description.

    (Yes, in history hollywood uses white actors/actresses to portray different races, which I of course disagree with).

    Should we get a white man to play Nelson Mandela? Or a Japanese transexual to play The Iron Lady?

    He has a track record of success. They make money guaranteed. Thats what you wnat when producing it. I dont think there is an obvious choice at the moment, but in 2 films time there might be. Its a business franchise and they like to make money.

    Dont think the box office is ready for a black bond, the worls mentality isnt that flexible and he wouldnt fit with all the backstory imo. He's too old now anyway. Be interesting to see what he's like in the Dark Tower.

    Damn, I'm sorry. Your IQ must be pretty low already if you didn't understand that.

    I really hope not. I must be the only person who think's Tom Hardy isn't actually that great of an actor... Every performance of him that I've seen is wooden and emotionless. He keeps being cast as this tough guy, yet he doesn't really seem anywhere near the level of Hollywood tough guys like Stallone/Arnie/Willis. They look like action heroes, whereas Tom Hardy looks like he just left the gym IMO...

    That said, he was right for the role in Fury Road (Gibson would've been the best though).

    As for Bond, I think Elba would be a good choice, but I don't care much for the post-Brosnan overly serious 'James Bourne'...

    Hardy is fantastic and I think he's quite versatile. Take Bronson for example.

    Henry Cavill would make a good Bond I reckon.
