No, he makes a recommendation for his successor

2002-12-27 12:22:14 PM  

Ahh, bite me. It was early, I hadn't had my coffee.

Your right though. I saw it right after it was to late to fix it. Sometimes the adequisivity of my own grammer skills astound me.

2002-12-27 12:53:34 PM  
Your right though.

Does he have a left though as well? < grin & gt

my html sux.

I first read that as Bosnian recomends his predecesor.
2002-12-27 02:38:31 PM  
I just saw that one with Timothy Dalton last night. An aside, the woman who plays Miss Kennedy is uber-fapalicious
2002-12-27 02:39:41 PM  
What about Clive Owen?
2002-12-27 02:40:46 PM  
I'm going to start submitting articles with ridiculous errors just so they can get posted.
2002-12-27 02:41:04 PM  
What about Cliff Claven?

ewan mcgregor?
2002-12-27 02:41:44 PM  
Colin Salmon? What about Garth Brooks? Rip Taylor? Henry Winkler? Freddy Prinze Jr.? Sho Kosugi? Shaq?

...and I'm spent. Have a good weekend all.
2002-12-27 02:43:47 PM  
Um, he doesn't. but I've been beaten to the punch pointing that out.
2002-12-27 02:43:57 PM  
How about they stop making the Bond films...the last one was a dud!
2002-12-27 02:44:11 PM  
Colin Salmon? WTF?

Hugh Jackman (wolverine) would be cool...
2002-12-27 02:45:07 PM  
fark it. Give the job back to Connery. He could still pull it off.

Ever notice the best Bonds aren't English? Not enough testosterone in that whole country to make a cool action hero.
2002-12-27 02:45:20 PM  
Sherman Helmsley?
2002-12-27 02:47:33 PM  
Colin Salmon? A black bond? I'm not trying to sound racist, but the fact of the matter is the character James Bond isn't supposed to be black.

And I agree with all the Ewen McGregor votes in this thread. Moulin Rouge aside, you can tell they're kinda grooming him for that role.
2002-12-27 02:49:21 PM  
Ewan McGregor is a good actor but I just can't see him pulling off Bond.

Colin Salmon

Let me be the first to say...

Who the fark is that?
2002-12-27 02:52:31 PM  
You know, I've always thought Val Kilmer would have been a good Bond... though my favorite so far (before the Brosnan era, which I don't think I'm able to accurately place yet) has been Dalton, so my Bond taste differs somewhat from the rest of the planet.
2002-12-27 02:52:43 PM  
I think Jason Isaacs would be cool.

2002-12-27 02:53:59 PM  
What about Cliff Claven?

Cliff plays a mean drum, I can't remember if it's snare or tenor though. Some of the guys in my pipe band met him earlier this year.

2002-12-27 02:54:51 PM  
Robinson? Where in the past 3 Bond movies is there a Robinson?
2002-12-27 02:54:54 PM  
How could you make Colin Salmon the next Bond if he's played another character in the Bond movies already? I guess *anyone* could technically be Agent 007, but hearing this:

"The name's Robinson...Charles Robinson."

ehhh...doesn't sound right.

Clive Owen would be cool...we already know he can drive.
2002-12-27 02:55:08 PM  
Here is a picture of Colin. He is a good actor. Black Bond? Why not, they had a Scot playing Bond.

2002-12-27 02:55:46 PM  
i thought they were talkin bout Carles Bronson
2002-12-27 02:55:48 PM  
Bond took over the secret agent role with 1995's GoldenEye. George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton, Roger Moore and Sean Connery also have starred in the films.

Huh? How did Bond take over the secret agent role in '95? I wish someone would read this shiat before it gets posted.
2002-12-27 02:56:54 PM  
And they've got an Irishman playing Bond right now. I don't see anything wrong with it from an artistic standpoint. It would unfortunately be a marketing blow... probably.
2002-12-27 02:57:02 PM  
IMO Brosnan and Connery are the best, but Pierce's movies are so much special effects and glit that they might as well have starred Vin Diesel, so Connery wins.
2002-12-27 03:07:49 PM  
"Anal Bum Cover"
2002-12-27 03:07:52 PM  
Ouroborous: You nailed it. Since I saw Clive Owen in Croupier I though he would make a great Bond.
2002-12-27 03:10:41 PM  
Not too surprised to see a black man suggested as the next Bond. The late Gene Siskel said the only person alive that he thought could play Bond the way Connery did was Denzel Washington.

But the headline was amazingly confusing. Pierce Brosnan recommends Timothy Dalton?
2002-12-27 03:13:51 PM  
Clive Owen? Have you people seen the transporter? The sucky level of that film would make it a sin just to say his name along with James Bond in the same sentence
2002-12-27 03:15:19 PM  
Tetro: Owen was in the Transporter? I thought that was Jason Statham?
2002-12-27 03:15:55 PM  
Christian Bale
Robbie Williams

eat me!

Dark City - Rufus Sewell
Xcept his hairs too curly so forget it!
2002-12-27 03:20:18 PM  
Icepick: I actually thought about Statham as Bond for moment, but, as much as I like him, he's more xXx than Bond. I think Tom Hanks should do a Bond movie. That would be hilarious.

suave, sophisticated, with kick ass karate moves
2002-12-27 03:27:26 PM  
I'm not sure Clive Owen's voice is suitable for the Bond role.
2002-12-27 03:32:54 PM  
Screw suave (Don Knots has that category locked up tight), go for cool points: Vinnie Jones
[image from too old to be available]
2002-12-27 03:33:44 PM  
It's nice to see Brosnon thinking about who should be next, but really, he has at least two more decades in him. He looks relatively young for his age, alot younger than Moore, Dalton or Lazenby. Hell Connery was in his pushing sixty or was sixty when he made Never say Never again.

Face it Peirce, you got the job for a long time. This is the second golden age of Bond films. Play your cards right and you too can be the next Sean Connery.
2002-12-27 03:39:02 PM  
never say never again wasn't a real bond movie. and it was horrible.
2002-12-27 03:43:23 PM  
I'll second the Vinnie Jones. You say Brits got no testosterone? I think he got most of it, he's a real life badass.
2002-12-27 03:45:36 PM  
Jeez, and no one has mentioned Leo, Matt, or Ben? What a surprise!
2002-12-27 03:45:58 PM  
But for all I know he ain't British either. How about Henry Rollins? (getting way off course now but he could pull it off)
2002-12-27 03:47:17 PM  
Screw the Transporter---Clive Owen is great. Have you seen the BMW films?
2002-12-27 03:54:04 PM  
Thanks for that link OyleSylck, it was a great read. Like you said, there's people on there I'd never have thought of, but now that I think of them I think how good they'd be. Colin Farrell would be a good one, and I'd love Guy Pearce to be Bond just so I could amuse myself by quoting Memento during the film. I always do that, quoting other films that actors in the film I'm watching have been in. When Sam Jackson lightsabered that dude's head off in Episode 2, I screamed "Oh, I'm sorry. Did I break your concentration??!"

I need a life.
