Scott Stapp trash and Aaron Taylor-Johnson trash are descended from the same family tree. The only difference is the accent. ATJ's father is a civil engineer so he doesn't exactly come from hard knocks, but I'd bet anything they were new to the middle class. Mom was a stage mommy early on.
He was very good as a working class mercenary in Bullet Train.

Just remember reading that someone was musing about a guy's looks and said that people aren't ugly, just poor. Meaning, throw a lot of money at someone, for makeup, lighting, fitness, and endless takes, and you can turn almost anyone into a passable action star. This franchise will be protected at all costs as if it were the King of England staring.
They will pick a handsome white man. We will all groan because he won't be this or that in our fantasy version of Bond. They will create a good first movie, as they did with Craig, and the most of us will fall in line.
I do look forward to a new Bond. Though I hope they at least let him be a man. I'm not interested in a female Bond, considering the type of action he always gets into a woman would get her ass kicked in a bond type hand to hand combat.

This just in straight from Chat GPT:
"London, UK - It is with great excitement that we announce Boris Johnson as the new face of the legendary British spy, James Bond. The former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom will bring his charm and charisma to the iconic role in the upcoming film.
Johnson, known for his quick wit and leadership skills, is the perfect fit for the suave and sophisticated Bond. With his proven track record and unique blend of humor and intelligence, audiences are sure to be entertained and thrilled.
Production for the new Bond film will begin later this year, with Johnson at the forefront. This announcement marks a new era for the Bond franchise and we can't wait for audiences to see what Johnson has in store for the legendary spy.
Stay tuned for more updates and get ready for a Bond like you've never seen before. #NewBond #BorisJohnson007"

Hardly. It took them forty years to turn Bond blond. And even that caused an outcry. No, at best they make Bond an open minded straight man who has enough self-esteem to flirt heavily with every gender - more or less openly. Remember, the movies need to make money around the entire world. Europe, USA, China and at some point Russia again. You know, it will happen. They will write for a character who is welcome in all those countries. A character who is cutting-edge in the US, is way too far off in lots of other lucrative markets.

None of the suggestions seem right at all. Truth is the Daniel Craig era has fucked up the franchise irreparably. He was a big departure from the established archetype, and everyone loved him, and he was great, and the man for the zeitgeist - but now they've got a nasty catch 22 on their hands - do they cast according to the old debonair, suave, velvety Bond type; or the gruff, rugby player, believably former-SAS Daniel Craig type??
Craig was in the role far too long because they took too long to get his films made. He should have been out by 2016. The zeitgeist has since devolved into this bizarro streaming hellscape where leading men have gone utterly extinct, and now people don't even know how to fancast the role properly - either STILL stuck on the zombified antiracist meme of goofy grandad Idris, or some virginal Shondaland twink of colour ... fuckin hell.
Also Craig's era, the actual films outside of his popular stint, was a total fuck up after Casino Royale. Bond films should be episodic - they tried to create arcs over multiple films - somehow didn't learn from the failure of Quantum in this respect, and success of Skyfall in this respect... and went back for more miserable retroactive 'emotion' in Spectre... and ridiculously doubled-down for No Time by retreading Vesper AND dumping a child on him AND killing him off... Jesus. Did they forget they were going to want us all back in the cinema after three years with a new man in the role???
The role is a proper poisoned chalice now.
I predict a short lived stint for whoever it is. The role is due that... people gloss over Lazenby and Dalton.

Aaron Taylor Johnson will make for a horrid Bond. I’ve said it before, his vibe is creepy and his acting reads as too antiheroic and too effeminate (not a bad thing for a character actor, in general)—even the lazy weaselly smirk that’s always on his face is eminently slappable. He started his career in these type of roles, and that’s what he ought to stick with.
He needs to play a Bond villain or a villainous Bond girl, if anything.

R85 Orblando, taking capability aside, is simply too camp and effeminate, even with age and weight on him, and esconsced as he is in the boring middle-aged father & husband years of his life.
Like ATJ, he is better suited to supporting or non-heroic roles. He can sparkle as a villain and seems to prefer playing them, he’s just rarely cast that way. Conversely, his biggest heroic part (in POTC) was overshadowed by two other actors, let’s not forget.

Liking the Jamie Dornan suggestion but he's probably not buff enough for the modern James Bond "himbo" requirements. Dornan would be compelling.

In what direction do they want to go with the franchise? If it were up to me, I would make Bond join SPECTRE, because they turn out to be the good guys fighting the corruption of the British Intelligence establishment. Like Mr. Robot.

Why, r159? Just make up a new, original character. If a character in a novel is changed so substantially, then how can he or she be considered to be that same character?

It's another beatup.
"There’s the fact that, just a month ago, producer Barbara Broccoli told reporters that no script exists for the next James Bond film, and no casting decisions have been made whatsoever, and that it will probably be two or three years before any sort of casting announcements are made."
|by Anonymous||reply 173||March 27, 2023 1:22 PM|
The producers are not the youngest anymore. Have they mentioned any succession plans? That whole franchise can go down the drain if someone takes over who doesn't understand the movies' DNA.
|by Anonymous||reply 174||March 27, 2023 1:35 PM|
Barbara Broccolli has one child: a daughter who is a budding producer, director, writer. Michael G. Wilson, her half-brother has two sons who are producers. Michael is 81, but Babs is only 62, and still very much in the game.
|by Anonymous||reply 175||March 27, 2023 2:31 PM|
It's pretty unique: EON is the only family company holding such a valuable film franchise. (Rami Malek said that his script was delivered to his hotel like a pizza by Babs herself.) Because they don't have anyone standing over them, they can do what they like, such as holding out during Covid for almost a year for the right time to release No Time To Die in theatres, despite the enormous interest charges on the production financing, which ended up being over a 100 million I think!

Debbie McWilliams the chief caster, who is about to retire and be replaced by her young niece Jemima, is a lovely character. She's let spill in interviews that she found Kukunaga trying, and also that American agents have such a poor opinion of British projects – even Bond – they sometimes don't pass on UK casting agent calls to their actors. It was only when McWilliams cornered Rami Malek at a preview screening that he learnt they'd been trying to reach him. That seems incredible given actors would crawl over broken glass to play a Bond villain, but according to McWilliams, Hollywood agents are obsessed with landing their actors a lucrative multi-movie franchise i.e. Marvel.
