YouGov wrote:A new YouGov survey reveals that Idris Elba is by far the British public’s favourite to play the next Bond. Of those who expressed an opinion, 28% chose Elba. In a distant second place is Tom Hardy on 11%, followed by Tom Hiddleston on 5% and Jason Statham on 3%. Richard Madden, who recently shot up the rankings with the bookies after his successful turn in BBC drama The Bodyguard, was chosen by 2% of those with a view.

I think they should have done it now with 25 rather than wheeling out Craig one more time.

Especially as Spectre wraps up the 4 Craig films and ties them all together.

I actually thought Dalton was great AS Bond. His version seemed to be the most serious and had the least amount of smarm to it. I might actually consider him my favourite Bond in terms of how he portrayed the character.

The films he did were actually not bad either.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

David Niven was the best James Bond.

He wasn't even the best Bond in that entire awful movie.

Dalton? :dread:

That's it, your license to post is being revoked.

Just kidding, I actually don't mind Dalton - he never really got the chance he deserved.

Dalton was miles ahead of his time. Both of his movies are fantastic.

Dalton is great, although at times it feels like his interpretation of the character is at odds with what the script or director were trying to do. There's an odd Jekyll and Hyde feel to his films at times where some of the time they go for a more grounded and gritty approach (which works well) and others they feel afraid to let go of some of the lighter and more foolish aspects that the series had developed up to that point.

That's always been the key to the Bond formula for me, get the balance right between the character being a brutal, efficient blunt instrument and a witty womaniser who deals with everything with a wink and a wry smile and you're on to a winner. For me only Connery ever really nailed that, and even then only in a handful of his movies.
