    Charlie Hunnam because that man needs a hit movie. BADLY. How did his career get where it is?

    Why do people think it’s to culturally appropriate to change the characters race, James Bond is white and has been for 50 years from the books to the movies, it won’t be tolerated if a culturally famous fictional black or Asian character was culturally appropriated by non black actor.
    If people want black or Asian British spy movie , there is always 009 or 008. People are making a big deal that he has to played by British actor, his race is a lot important to the character than what nationally the actor playing him is.

    Just like same SJW’s want him to be played female or turn him gay. GTFOH.

    I agree. I am Asian, I am actually against whitewashing, but it should apply to every race. If the character was written as white, black, hispanic, asian, indian or native american person then let it be. If people want the character to be black or asian then just write them as is. This makes me think maybe in 50 years they’re gonna make harry potter asian american or black or maybe transgender. SMH

    Oh God no. No! No! OMG! Bond might be played by a black guy. My racist heart is having spasms of racist anger. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

  • dee

    ITS A FICTIONAL CHARACTER AND A MOVIE!! WHO CAAAARES WHAT THE CHARACTERS RACE IS?!? We all know it should either be Idris or Charlie! Period.

  • Thiran Uthaman

    not everything is racism.

  • Steve Farrar

    Tom austen from the royals should be the next james bond 007 most bond actors were not highly known but somewhat known we need a younger actor to get 5 to 10 movies

  • MarkyMark

    Richard Madden is my choice

  • sen


  • Smoothief

    Why couldn’t I vote for Michael Fassbender even though his name is listed in the results? smh fix it

  • tia maria

    I hope Henry Cavill is the next Bond.

  • Kikoken

    Peter Dinklage

  • Cruizin1960

    Because it is an iconic character and firmly established in the minds of moviegoers.

  • Cruizin1960

    It depends on whether they are going with a Roger Moore type Bond or a Sean Connery/Daniel Craig type of Bond. IMO Sam Heughan and Tom Hiddleston are more of a Roger Moore type and Charlie Hunnum and Jamie Dornan more of a Connery type.

  • Jan Brunette-Hunyady

    Aidan Turner should be the next James Bond.

  • Nick Wilkins

    gerard butler

  • Gina

    I’m sick of this conversation.

  • Powerline29

    Ugh , anyone who voted Jamie dorman shouldn’t be allowed to watch Bond movies. He would be God awful.

  • Powerline29

    Better then some on this list

  • Powerline29

    Cavill, Hunnam, Hiddleston please. I’m not opposed to Elba and actually think he would be awesome but by the time he would be Bond he would be close to 50 and in todays world a Bond movie is every 4-5 years so old for me personally

  • Powerline29

    Yeah, the rumor of a female Bond was what got me. Like, just come up with a cool female spy yourself and I’ll watch that. Would honestly make Bond unwatchable

  • Elijah Cee

    Spy in the north!

  • Rousse Clairi

    I believe Joy Messerschmidt, Joe Jonas, Justin Bieber, Luke Judea, Bill Kowalsky

  • Rousse Clairi

    I believe Joy Messerschmidt, Joe Jonas, Justin Bieber, Bill Kowalsky, Luke Judea, Patrick Martin, Wade Wallis-Catherine the whole friend group associated with these people should play James Bond–it’s in the future there’s stability if your smart in the CIA–you always get the babe. That’s my point of view…

  • Justin Cook

    Theo James

  • norah mackenzie

    bradley james or james norton – someone who is relative unknown

  • Lane Bashford

    You’ve all missed the right choice. Bond should be played by Aidan Turner. He’s smokin!

  • dilike, a kétfarkú cicuska,

    i want tom ellis

  • nelson

    After watching “The Spy Who Dumped Me”, Sam Heughan would be a great choice for James Bond in my opinion.

  • Kathy Mullen Ford

    Sam Heughan only……

  • Zafaryll

    Theo James, Sam Claflin!

    Bill skarsgård He has a special charisma and will fit that role

  • Nguyễn Minh Trâm

    I’d prefer Tom Hiddleston

  • Lolo23

    Omg a yes for that!

  • Bob Maistros

    Aiden Turner

  • Aimee Jason

    Okay…I am so bothered by this. To me..Daniel Craig is the Ultimate James Bond…he is also the ultimate pain in the waazoo… when it comes down to James Bond…with that being said…I have a love/hate thing going on for him right now…but I still find it hard to picture someone filling those shoes. I love Gerard…but IDK if this is for him…and I love Benedict Cumberbatch as well…I would like to see him in an espionage role such as this..he’s seriously amazing…but …see it’s all Daniel’s fault! Ughhhh …that guy🤦🏽‍♀️…and the movie is delayed…so irked right now…but Dammit he is BOND to me…always will be..and I think if he wasn’t so not for being Bond anymore…this would have been a very long franchise run for him like it was for Connery….who still melts my heart…so handsome. Anyhew…just here to vent…so let’s see how this goes! ✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🤷🏽‍♀️

  • Mark Durl

    michael fassbender would be a good choice

  • Mia

    What? No Tom Ellis? You’ll be getting a lot of requests for him, so you might as well make a spot now.

  • Alfagirl

    Tom Ellis would be the perfect James Bond. He has the charisma, charming attitude, wit, and good looks. He can be serious and them witty in the same scene. He has depth and range in this repertoire. My vote would be for Tom Ellis.

  • Monica Miles

    Tom Ellis #TomEllisAsBond provided he wants to and can squeeze it between Lucifer

  • distachio

    Sam Heughan was very much the suave Bond-like hero in “Spy Who Dumped Me.” He’s my choice!

  • Paola A

    Tom Ellis would be PERFECT.
