Live Poll: 2020s-2030s James Bond

James Bond must be a British male to be true to Ian Fleming's character and in his 30s to allow the franchise to develop. Who do you think should be chosen?

If any one could propose some black actor it would be nice to have such diversity.

But Idris Elba and Colin Salmon who would be great, are not in the right age. Please no kid faces like Daniel Kaluuya or John Boyega.

Amar'e Stoudemire is an unusual choice of Welshman.

 Thanks to Dan Dassow's help, the list is full. Any big objection anybody? Any last proposal?

Since the list is full, any new proposal must be joined with a seirious objection for one of the 35 present. What could the objection be? Not sure. Maybe a mistake in age or origin? too short? or too tall (in comparison to previous Bonds)? or an offensive political comment in social network?

You are welcome, stermix. You have a good candidate list. Others may have additional feedback.

 

By the way, bond polls have been popular, as you can see during the original run of the poll. I've also categorized polls. These are the 45 current live polls related to Bond. Your poll suggestion is a fresh look at the category. Best of luck.

Thanks. You are a living imdb-encyclopaedia :)

I did it because most internet articles had not (in point of my view) a sensible approach. Mostly put in some big names of any age to write a fast empty article

We tend to forget it but James Bond was almost always played by lesser-known actors. I think that a good poll should also reflect that. The only exception to that rule was Daniel Craig who was kind of popular after playing in Layer Cake.

 

Therefore, I would remove Henry Cavil, Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Tom Hiddleston, and Kit Harington.

 

I also think that Taron Egerton, Kit Harington, Tim Pocock, and Jack O'Connell are too short for the role. Daniel Craig is 1.78 m and he is the shortest bond. I don't see James Bond being shorter than 5'10".

Except Cavill who I believe has totally the look and required charisma, (even an AI said he would be great), I agree cinephile with your approach. Especially for your last paragraph.

Let me however point out that in 2020s globalisation and expansion of internet, there is no actor who can be lesser-known. Especially if he is good enough to take a huge franchise on his shoulders.

I believe it is well argumented that Taron Egerton, Kit Harington, Tim Pocock, and Jack O'Connell should go. Please suggest any 4 ones you like in order to replace them.

2 relatively unknown (I have never seen them playing) Tom Cullen, Max Brown got in at the expense of established Nicholas Hoult, Robert Pattinson. They look tall enough and in good shape. Tom really has it. Has anyone watched them in anything?

Please change "Poll Suggestion" to "Live Poll" in the discussion thread title and change the settings so that it appears under "Praise" now, rather than "Idea."
