A female Bond. Now there is an idea. Never been attempted. Could re-write history. The British wouldn't dare to would they?!

Exactly, it has to be a Brit imho.

Nice funny guy, and in The Meg: man I have to go to the gym, his torso is perfect....

Though Fassbender would be ok too.

Stereotypical:
-The Aston has to go and be replaced by a white on white Bentley Bentayga with 26 inch chrome alloys.

Lets not forget, Dwayne the Rock Johnson is in his mid 40s and the highest paid action star, make that movie star on earth!
I'm afraid this has ZERO to do with his age. SMFH. He's a very capable British actor and deserves the role as much as ANY British actor available.
Dwayne Johnson is awesome that's why he plays the young Mitch Buchanan in the new Baywatch.

I saw sometimes a discussion about the overall behaviour of the played Bonds according to treatment to women, and Connery and Moore came away very badly. Even 007 is fictional though, they never ask the women into the films if they like it to get touched and so on and even they complained about that, they got kissed and the other stuff.
Well, this isnt to ruin the thread, but this was one of the reasons to change the manners Bond would act to femals actresses. Connery and Moore were more dinosaurs of their gentlemens way so this had maybe also lead to a actors change.
Brosnan was my favorite Bond and the decision to change the whole show with Craig was a little disturbing for me, nevertheless, Casino Royale was for my personal taste one of the best Bonds ever.
For female Bonds I would prefer Cameron Diaz or Anne Hathaway.

My wife was/is totally Roger Moore fan. She likes Craig, but thinks he's more of a Neanderthal/peasant (in his role) compared to gentleman Moore(and Connery etc)

Actually it has a lot to do with his age because they always want to get 4-5 films out of the actor. He'll be what 45 - 58?

Daniel Craig was about 36 when he filmed Casino Royale.

Roger Moore was 46 when he started as Bond and did seven movies in the franchise. He's also my favorite bond.

Right and his run is why they want a younger bond. At 60 Moore looked a little creepy when he was with actresses who were just a few years older than his grandkids.


If Moore wasn't stuck doing The Saint we may have never had Connery and Moore may not have run as long as he did. IJS.
