In a new blind item that lists all the actors who are currently being considered to play James Bond in the film series’ next outing, their pros and cons are listed without names. Most of the options are pretty obvious, but a couple of the clues are tricky. Let’s have a look and see what we can suss out:
… Would be a nice familiar choice, but they are annoyed about his $$$ demands and are now leaning towards bringing in someone younger to play the role for the next three to four installments.”
But, but …
Wait, did someone say …
… puppies? Hey, that’s only one puppy!
Ooh! Got any more?
Look at all the puppies Daniel Craig will bring if they give him another shot? Surely, DC + Puppies = worth All the Moneys!
Despite Naomie Harris’ claim that Craig will probably be back, Bond producers are reportedly considering these other actors for 25:
… Has the height and the British accent, but rather ruined his image as a cool sexy playboy when he dated [that pop star].”
Oh, Tom … what did you do? WHAT DID YOU DO?
… Has the height, is handsome, and can pull off the action sequences, but they find his version of a British accent off-putting.”
Yeah, I can see that. Hardy‘s accent is a little quirky. However, he does also bring puppies to the table.
… Is under 40, has a perfect accent and could pull off the part, but lacks a certain cool confidence and is just too damn short.”
Poor Jamie Bell is (reportedly) only 5’7″ and has no puppies.
… Has a great voice, but while they would seriously consider a man of color, they want someone for the franchise for years to come and he is a bit long in the tooth.”
Idris? Long in the tooth? RUDE.
… Is an real up-and-comer but not as well-know as all the other choices. They really like him but are unsure if audiences will warm to someone for whom this would be a breakout role.”
My guess for this is Aidan Turner, already known to be on the MGM short list. It could also be James Norton.
… Is already very hot in the market, but they see him as more adorable than handsome, and just too damn American.”
Hmm, I’m a little stumped with this one. Is it Legion‘s Dan Stevens (who is English, but many might mistake for American),
or could it be our own Cap — Chris Evans?
Speaking of ^^^, how could they possibly forget the most obvious Bond choice of all?
I mean, it’s not exactly a puppy, but it IS Gillian Anderson.
Come on, Barbara Broccoli, give PETA-Gill a chance.
