    There wasn't any independent page on CNN I managed to link up to; just a link to a 1:35 video clip.

    I think Sean Connery became hotter as he got older. :tongue2:

    Why do some men get better looking when they get older? It's not fair. :frown:

    Oh it's fair enough, Evo.
    After all, men don't get a face like a wrinkled apple, do they?

    How the hell did Daniel Craig get that role?

    Eeeewwww! He's not attractive at all! He looks like he'd make a good villain, but not a good Bond! :yuck:

    Hey, the dude from Layer Cake. In case you guys forgot, he is an actor, not an underwear model. I think he's a good choice.

    Yeah, but the character James Bond is supposed to have a reputation as a ladies' man. You can't have someone totally unattractive fit that role. That would make the usual final scene in every James Bond film rather...icky.

    the new james bond is supposed to be more like in the book, a "darker soul", rather than some guy who lounged around in a bed with some women and drank martinis :)

    the pictures that they show in the articles of daniel don't really show him in his best, if you look at him in Layer Cake, he actually would look good as a bond i think. i'd like to hope they dye his hair...

    according to the times, theyre trying to be more like "the iconic spy of the decade" - jack bauer (from 24) who is quite dark, (tortures people, would do anything for the cause, undercover ops, black ops stuff).

    anybody know when casino royale will be out?

    Much better than (too well known) Clive Owen and (Australian :uhh: ) Hugh Jackman - the supposed favourites.

    I was still kinda holding out for a Quentin Tarantino directed Bond movie with Samuel L. Jackson as Bond.

    Maybe one day hollywood will stop being so racist and let a brother get a crack at that role; unfortunately, that day has not yet come...

    DANG!!! Beat me to it.

    I personally think Clive Owen would've made a better Bond. If anyone has seen his movies on BMW Films you'll know what I'm talking about.

    Hollywood can make anyone look attractive w/ enough make up. Have you ever seen pics of people like britney spears or JLO with out their make up? They look friggin horrible and lesss than average looking.

    Now not wanting to sound racist here but i dont think a coloured actor would ever be able to play james bond, just wouldnt be right. Samuel L Jackson is too cool but lacks enough class to play james bond, would make a fantastic bad guy though.

    Bit like asking Sean Connery to Play Shaft, isn't it?
