Our dear Jacob Elordi the next James Bond?

I don’t think he is interested but he would be the most iconic Bond EVER. Sean Connery who?

As it so happens, I have a friend who works with Barbara Broccoli (daughter of Cubby Broccoli, the Bond series' original producer, and EP of every Bond movie since his death). He's explicitly said that 99% of the Bond casting rumours are total bullshit, and are almost wholly fabricated – and mentioned after the SAG strike ended that they haven't even settled on a *concept* for the next Bond yet. Without that, they clearly can't hire anyone.

He's also pointed out that this is a bigger conundrum than most realise. The Daniel Craig films are the only serialised ones in the entire franchise, and given that he actually died at the end, the studio is in what he described as a 'tabula rasa' stage. I know many have forgotten it, but the Craig films were intended to serve as a pseudo 'origin story', which was problematic since Craig was already pushing 40 when he was cast. It started at the ostensible beginning of his career as a 00 agent, but what fucked it up was MGM's bankruptcy delaying 'Skyfall' by nearly five years. (That's what led to this 'origin story' tale turning into a comeback - and exit for Dame Judi - in which Bond is initially 'washed up'.)

Finally, Amazon now owns all things Bond, and if you haven't watched much in the way of streaming television in the past decade, I'll point out (much like my friend did) that Prime Video's formal policy is to NOT release anything with a cis het white male lead.

Who will be the next Bond? Per my friend: 'Unless Barbara talks Bezos out of it, Bond won't be white. If Idris (Elba) was a decade younger, he'd be a shoo-in.' Under this scenario, Regé-Jean Page is the unofficial leading contender. Or they may go for a *much* earlier origin story: possibly branded 'The Road to 00 Status' (though I sure as fuck hope not), and featuring an actor of colour in his 20s. It will DEFINITELY be either a Brit or, like Pierce Brosnan, an Irishman who's spent most of his life – and all of his acting life – in the UK.

Jacob is too white and too Australian for the gig. Sorry, bitches.

by Anonymousreply 18November 24, 2023 11:33 PM

Oh, and my friend also specifically said 'Jack Ryan' will be Amazon's last major series with a white male lead, and it's now over.

The creators like to pretend that Bond is a single person and that “007” is not a designation and James Bond not a pseudonym given to multiple men over the years. They could get rid of their conundrum by indicating that 007 is a designation and Bond a pseudonym.

R63 are you still cunting you cunt? Scotland is a Country and Britain is an island. Scotland is part of that island so Scottish people are yes technically from the island Britain, but then also technically the country you’re from is specifically where you’re from, not the island/land mass. A Scotsman can identify as both. Some do and some dont. Sean Connery was born in Scotland, British geographically but he obviously identified with his country/region first. Every biography on the man mentions he is SCOTTISH including his Wikipedia page. Take it up with them. Also get some therapy to address your very obvious inferiority complex towards Americans because you sound pathetically jealous. I don't care where you're from you're a cunt no matter the region.

Notice that the survey is about how they feel, not what they are. Because they are both British and Scottish. Of course, they can feel or identify with one more than the other, but it does not change the fact that they are both. They are citizens of both Scotland and the United Kingdom, they don't have Scottish passports they have UK passports, and in areas which are not devolved they are ruled by the UK Parliament. It's time to stop digging.

R75, I know it's a common misconception that actors are always shorter in real life, but we really *do* have some tall ones, and certainly ones far better known than the Aussie dude whose surname is inevitable butchered when spoken. The Rock is 6'4" and Ben Affleck is either 6'2" or 6'3" (slightly taller than I am - yes, we met once - and I'm 6'1").

R69, can you please make up your mind, sweetie? Do you hate scrawny twinks like Timmy, or tall hunks of solid Aussie beefcake like Jacob? Or are you an incel who's jealous of all reasonably attractive men, given your decades of virginity? (I'm guessing the latter.)

I did not expect this thread to devolve into a bitchfest over ancestry within the British Commonwealth, but yes, if we're being technical, more non-English actors have played Bond than not, and one was Lazenby, an Australian. That said, he was such a fucking entitled diva bitch that he quit in a huff after the producers and crew didn't treat him "on Connery's level," and the studio CLEARLY learned their lesson in terms of taking care in hiring Bond actors. (OTOH Roger Moore's films have held up the least well, and we also know what happened to poor Timothy Dalton.)

Without delving into anything specific to the UK or Great Britain, I will merely say that there is effectively zero chance TODAY that they'd hire anyone EXCEPT a Brit to play Bond. Brosnan merited an exception, despite being technically Irish, given that his family moved to the UK when he was 12 and he attended Central St Martins as well as the Drama Centre in London. (Nowadays the center of drama is usually right here on DL, but still.) Representation isn't just for queer people (or people of color), and while Americans gave zero fucks seeing Israeli Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman – she'd probably get a different reaction today, but let's not segue there – the same can't be said for Britain's most iconic cinema legend.

Finally, one MAJOR FUCKING CAVEAT you cunts have somehow missed: did you forget that Bond HIMSELF is Scottish?? That was established as canon in "Skyfall": Bond's ancestral titular estate is in the Scottish Highlands. Also, Connery didn't exactly try to hide his brogue in his Bond movies, so you could argue Bond's always supposed to have been Scottish, even if Daniel Craig's version developed a posh accent at Eton or Oxford (as established in "Casino Royale").

Jacob Elordi would demand all of his tuxedos be bedazzled if he were cast as Bond. Terrible choice. But then again so is Idris. Great actor but not Bond. Let’s hope to hell it’s not the potato faced John Boyega or the equally hideous Daniel whatsit from Get Out .
