I understand Donald Trump will be needing a job soon. He would be perfect for the role.

Kanye ???

You have to be able to deliver lines.

And shut your mouth when you are not delivering lines.

Alexander Skarsgard?

Maybe it's just he's my most recent celebrity obsession. Of course, Tom Hiddleston has the savoir faire and has proven he looks just fine going from blond/ginger to black hair. They both can play the thin line between actual humanity and cold- hearted ruthlessness Bond exhibits.

But I would take Idris Elba in a heartbeat.

I would love to see him as a Dr Who.

Gotta go with Idris. A little worried about his age though. You may get two movies out of him before 60 comes knocking.

I think he would have been a good choice a few years ago or if it was for one movie.  If you want to have a consistent actor for a few films he's a little old.

Elba isn't much younger than Craig, and he has been doing Bond for 15 years. Connery and Moore played the role in their 50's but the action in those movies was definitely dialed down in comparison to the modern versions.

Five or ten years ago he would have been an excellent Bond.  Now though I think they need to find someone in the 30-35 range.

He's four years younger than Daniel Craig who is too old to play bond anymore.

He already has a big career. Bond movies make stars out of work-a-day actors.

I was hoping for Patterson Joseph as Dr. Who (after his performance of the Marquis de Carabas in Neverwhere), but I suspect I'd be good with Richard Ayoade, too.  (I'd need to watch some of his more serious works ... I've only seen him in IT Crowd, The Mighty Boosh, and his various voice work)

I could also see Richard Coyle as the Doctor.

The Idris ship has sailed.  Move the fark on.  He might work as a one-off - Bond nearing retirement, soul weary with all that he's done, etc... Elba does that better than anyone.  But if they're looking for multiple movies, I think he's the wrong choice.

If you're looking for diversity, Henry Golding would be a solid choice.  Tall, good-looking, physical.  Raza Jeffrey would be good, but he's 45.  I'm not sure how tall he is, but Ray Panthaki checks all the other boxes.  If it's important to people that he's black - Ashley Walters would be an interesting choice.  Good-looking and with an intense demeanor.

Shia LaBeef of course

I bet James McAvoy could pull it off.  Gerard Butler would have been great about 10 years ago.

Gerard Butler 10 years ago is probably the closest match to the Ian Fleming Bond.

Or Clive Owen. Either choice would be good.
