Latest James Bond Rumours...

Thu Mar 31, 2005 11:42 pm

Mi6.co.uk and universalexports.net are both reporting rumours that Clive Owen will be ‘unveiled’ officially as the new James Bond next week.

Ewan MacGregor has also rumoured (in various sources) recently.

The Times, however, are heavily implying that Orlando Bloom will get the role.

I presume that this is to some extent agents floating balloons for their clients?

Personally, I think they should back down and get Brosnan to do one more but failing that, Clive Owen is the best option.

Orlando Bloom? WTF? They would turn it into a crappy Spiderman man style teen movie.

good news - he has zero % approval on this site, then, so far. Hopefully their focus groups are telling them the same.

Actually I agree that Clive Owen isn't a bad option - especially now that he is getting better known on both sides of the Atlantic.

Haven't they also mentioned Colin Salmon many times in the past - he's already appearing with a small part in the Bond films - a coloured JB would get some attention that's for sure.

I actually think Salmon would be pretty good. At one point, betting was suspended on him because of some big bets on him, but that was just rumours at the time.

They have, yes. I actually think he'd be brilliant as Bond - his voice and on-screen charisma. It'd be fantastic if they looked beyond race and just decided he was the best man for the job. He'd definitely get my vote for it.

How about a Welsh entry for James Bond.. how about Ioan Gruffudd. He is a very talented and versatile actor who is respected hugely in the acting community. I personally believe taht he has the manner and physical features to be a Bond.



What is everyone elses opinion on Ioan Gruffudd becoming the next James Bond?

The original was the best, Sean Connery.

Given that he is a British agent, does he have to be British or have a British accent?
If not now, then when?

Actually, that's the next Bond film. Since Casino Royale has never been done as an "official" Bond film, the next one will finally tackle it, albeit an updated version.


One name that popped up recently was Julian McMahon (Best known for Nip/Tuck). It would be a good choice if you wanted a more brooding darker Bond.


Clive Owen seemed to be the runner up early on to Hugh Jackman, who I think would have been a decent Bond, but rumors were that the filming schedule for X-Men 3 would conflict with the filming schedule for Casion Royale (Especially since C.R. has been pushed back).

Give me a swift kick .. but in my eyes the perfect James Bond cast would be Jude Law or Robbie Williams

Both have that classy Gentleman attitude .. on the bad side they lack that certain sex appeal Sean Connery used to have.
