Interesting point. Maybe an opportunity for Chan to get more visibility ?

I know. I think it's the one time the French can get me to surrender, instead of the other way around.

I can't stand Bond, and that poster is fantastic.

We haven't seen "Brokeback" Bond yet either.

Clive Owen was great in Gosford Park though.

Beyond Borders too, with Angelina Jolie.

Laugh at me for it but I really enjoyed BMW's Driver short films with Clive Owen

He's capable of doing a lot with very little. The BMW shorts and The Bourne Identity showed that rather well, despite wasting him (the latter more than the former). Haven't seen him in anything big, though, unless you count some Masterpiece Theater from a while back (which was good, by the way).

Thank god.

Not in an offensive way, just - some things are for men in a very certain sense of the word. A gay bond would be the end, as far I'm concerned, of the franchise.

Though in a totally different direction,

What minority race have they not done yet?

I'd be very interested to see a minority bond: a black, asian, or otherwise non-Anglo-Saxon Bond. In the reality of modern britain, it's not too far-fetched.

It sure would. But then it would also get a politically correct academy award nomination, whether the movie was good or not.

I don't care if they do gay cowboys, gay presidents, gay astronauts, or gay marines. What I do want is to keep one of the last icons of independent, heterosexual, MASCULINE, and STYLISH men intact. Bond is one of the few remaining snappy dressers in pop culture who hasn't gone metro. And I'd like to keep it that way.

I agree. I am a Bond fan. In fact I have even been accused, right here on Style Forum (or maybe it was AAAC), of living in my mom's basement and watching to many Bond movies, which served as the genesis for my ISS "fantasy"

He's already gone metro, as an example, they cut out the smoking quite a few movies ago. And he has a lady boss now that berates him as a chauvinist, etc.

I like the literary Bond. Pretty good pulp fiction, and I would recommend that anyone who's going to see the Casino Royale movie, read the book first.

I remember the smoking thing! In Tomorrow Never Dies, he lights a russian's cigarette, then punches him out and says 'Filthy habit.' As a kid, I cheered. As an adult and a smoker, I booed when I saw that again.

Yeah, he has gone a little metro. But he's still a jingoistic cad, a drunk, a chauvinist, a womanizer, and fairly amoral and ruthless. So you gotta love him.

Yeppers. Agreed. But if you haven't read the books, Penguin Classics has republished all of them. Great airplane reading.

I think the two Dalton movies were closer to the literary Bond. Word is that the new movie will be closer to the original Fleming work than any of the other movies.

I think Fleming's writing style was good, but I slightly prefer Graham Greene.
