Connery should get a cameo in the next Bond, that alone would be worth the price of admission.



Better yet,Connery could be the bad guy.He hasn't been a bad guy very much in his career(if ever)and this would be like a curtain call.


Now that would be awesome!!!

I don't see it happening, but that would be sweet! He played a semi-villan in "the Rock" .. I think he would be the ultimate bad guy for a Bond movie! Especially at the end if he took out Bond and then the screen goes black.... "The End .. forever"

I like the call on the evil Connery...that would rule, and it would get tons and tons of people to come watch the movie! ;-D

McMahon is the better for bond of the two. In nip/tuck mcmahon is the guy who does all the h ot (filter) chicks in his office when he's supposed to be working. he gets all the gi rils (filter), just like bond.

ANOTHER UPDATE!

Pierce Brosnan is gone... again... from the James Bond movies.

USA TODAY wrote:A single, surprising phone call and it was over. That's how Pierce Brosnan says he learned that his services as James Bond would no longer be required.

"One phone call, that's all it took!" the 52-year-old actor tells Entertainment Weekly magazine in its Aug. 19 issue.

Brosnan starred in four Bond films. He says that before they stopped negotiations, the producers had invited him back for a fifth time.

"You know, the movie career for me really started with Bond," says Brosnan, acknowledging that by the time GoldenEye premiered in 1995, he was already 42.

He then starred as 007 in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999) and Die Another Day (2002).

His departure from the role was a "titanic jolt to the system," says Brosnan, followed by "a great sense of calm."

"I thought. ... I can do anything I want to do now. I'm not beholden to them or anyone. I'm not shackled by some contracted image. So there was a sense of liberation."

Brosnan says he's grateful to have had the role, but adds: "It never felt real to me. I never felt I had complete ownership over Bond. Because you'd have these stupid one-liners — which I loathed — and I always felt phony doing them."

He plays a foulmouthed, skirt-chasing hit man in the upcoming film The Matador.

"(For this) to come on the heels of my departure from the world of Bond is sweet grace, to play this one as a farewell to that chapter in time — it certainly wasn't planned."

Why oh why would you not want him to play Bond????? Roger Moore did Bond until he was like 75. so age wasn't a factor.

The last few Bond flicks were SOOOO bad I don't really care who the new Bond is - I'll wait for the video (at best) whatever the choice...

I thought Clive Owen would be a good fit

Or there is that dude that played in "The Transporter"

Jason Stathman


Jason Statham (or however you spell it) is awesome.

But he has no hair. Bond usually has good hair.

The new-age bond could be bald, or they could give him a realistic rug.

Why don't we go all the way and get The Rock? Maybe Jet Li? Hollywood seems to want to completely redo things, like making Kojack a black guy, and in the Battlestar Galactica series Starbuck and Boomer are now women, so maybe we can use Gina Gershon so there is at least boobs to ogle when the new film sucks. Not to mention the potential of girl-on-girl with the new bond girl....Pamela Anderson maybe? ;-D
