The Name Is Bond, James Bond. So Who Will It Be?
It was recently reported on UK’s EXPRESS that James Bond, Daniel Craig might actually, almost certainly (maybe, perhaps) be walking away from the 007 franchise.
Apparently Craig has been signed on to play a leading role in a US TV drama called Purity. A 20 episode project that would clearly create a conflict for Craig to return as James Bond even if he is contracted to star in one more Bond film – the 25th installment of 007.
Nothing has been confirmed from Daniel Craig’s camp on whether or not he will be staying or going. To further muddle the situation the Mirror has reported that MGM would be willing to delay production to ensure Craig is back for one last run as Bond.
Should Craig come back one more time as Bond? Is he getting too old? He’s 47. That’s not old. I’m 47. I’m not… oh wait. Yeah, that’s not too old.
I think Craig still has it, but does he want it?
I don’t think he’ll lose any sleep over whatever decision he makes. He’ll most definitely not-slash-his-wrists over it. Ahem. For me personally, I think he should walk away. He made a great Bond. Energized a flailing franchise. It wasn’t perfect, but SPECTRE seemed to me a nice bookend to a solid 4 film stint as James Bond.
So if Daniel Craig does walk away, who should come in as his replacement?
Many have already speculated who might wear the moniker of James Bond, and that’s exactly what we’re here to do, speculate who might the next James Bond be… in picture form. Welcome to my The Name Is Bond, James Bond. So Who Will It Be? mash up.
Let’s get started:
I think I’ll pass. Plus the only Ginger I can see playing Bond would be our very own Militant Ginger, Roland.
So much bravado. He’d kill as the next James Bond. Ladies, am I right? Ladies?!
Let’s just hope he remembers how to order 3 glasses of whiskey if ever spying in Germany.
He’s held his own as Rick Grimes in AMC’s The Walking Dead. Time to trade in his Colt Python for a PPK?
My pick. A Roger Moore incarnate? Sure! Why not! Maybe it’s time to have some fun with Bond again.
Already proved he can handle a gun as Hitman: Agent 47. Just don’t shave the head, ok Rupert?
There’s no chance they’ll be making a sequel to Into The Storm, right? No Hobbit 4? Richard might be available.
Wether it’s the next film or the one after, we’ll eventually be looking at a new Bond. Did any of these choices strike a chord with you? Did I miss someone? Let me know.
Hope you enjoyed this, the The Name Is Bond, James Bond. So Who Will It Be? mash up. Until next time!
