Personally I don't want a female Bond or a black Bond or any other race/nationality at all, thats not racist its just thats how he is portrayed in the books how Fleming wanted him and I would rather stay close to the original character.

Thats not saying a woman or other race Bond wouldnt be good its just I want it kept as the book intended, nothign more nothing less.

I must admit I have liked Craig far more as Bond that I ever thought I would, too many others have been too flimsy or frivolous in their portrayal of him, Craig is far closer to the origins.

Just my personal take.

It's all made up shit. The world didn't end when there was a female Doctor Who.

People hated Craig for being blonde when he was cast because it wasn't the 'right' look. What matters is that the films are any good. Idris Elba would have been brilliant but he's probably too old for the role now.

I'm sure whoever it does end up being will generate plenty of anger from some quarter before they even record a frame of film.

Must admit I never heard those doubters at all at the time, Roger Moore was more of a blonde haired chap in at least 3 of the Bond movies and nobody really had any issues with him.

just watched Bond.

erm, not sure what to make of that really. hard to talk about it without spoilers. it was bondy in places, bond by numbers in others, not too bondy in some places and er, the end.

Elba is 49 and Craig 53. I think Elba would make a great bond and could just about do age wise. It will be really interesting where they take the next movie.

I felt the same when they cast Elba as Roland in the hideous Dark Tower movie. That character was Clint Eastwood in my mind and so I wanted him cast similarly.

Having said that I don’t have an affinity for the Bond character that I did for Roland so changing it up wouldn’t personally bother me at all. And as it happens, It like to see the next Bond be played by…wait for it…

Idris Elba. Think he’s smash it

So why all the complaints when someone white plays certain roles considered "inappropriate"? Can't have one rule etc.

Like Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher you mean?

As a Wittertainment listener, their 'WTF - What's that film' feature has had me thinking about a film I watched on Sky in the early 00's, a Blair Witch-ish found footage film about a family meal getting interupted by aliens and the family disappearing one by one, searched for it maybe 10 years ago to no avail... was mid-email to the show, before I thought I'd better have one last check... no trailers on Youtube, nothing came up when searching other than a 2014 film called Alien Abduction... until I stumbled across a horror site that had a '30 years since...' kinda article, turns out it predated Blair Witch, was a TV movie and had the same kinda effect that BBC's 'Ghostwatch Live!' had, loads of people thought it was real.

I give you, Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County. So bad it's kinda good... https://archive.org/details/LakeCounty#
