James Bond 007 - 2015 - Spectre


Recommended Posts

Skyfall will be a hard act to follow

It will indeed. Not often I rate a "new" item - Oly OC, Bond movie, whatever - as a "best", but Skyfall sure fights it out with Goldfinger for my favourite.

I see they say Monica Bellucci will be the oldest Bond girl to date - they're wrong, that was Elizabeth Mountbatten-Windsor.

Hugh Jackman would be perfect as a song-and-dance James!!

Actually, I'm sure that I saw a report a year or two ago that Jackman actually was considered for the Bond role at one stage.

...she has so many horse parts.

...sia? ...she wrote diamonds (Rihanna) which seems kinda bond-y and coulda been a great title song.

Or.......Florence Welch / Florence + the machine? That could be real interesting.

Sia could inded be interesting, Florence maybe a bit OTT.

Of course, it's been a while since they tried the A-ha / Duran approach ....

"Idris should be the next Bond," Sony Pictures chair Amy Pascal wrote, reportedly to a fellow studio executive.

We had 50 years of white Bonds because Bond is white”

Rush LimbaughConservative commentator

That was enough to set conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh into a tizzy. Bond, he said on his radio programme last week, has a distinct ethnic profile that Mr Elba, who is black, doesn't fit.

"He was white and Scottish, period. That is who James Bond is," Limbaugh said, adding: "I know it's racist to probably even point this out."

"But the franchise needs to get with it, right?" he continued. "The franchise needs to get hip. The franchise needs to get with the 21st Century. That's right. We had 50 years of white Bonds because Bond is white. Bond was never black."

Limbaugh said that casting Mr Elba as Bond would be equivalent to having George Clooney play Barack Obama or Kelsey Grammar in the role of Nelson Mandela (although he acknowledged the difference between actual people and fictional characters).

Discuss.
