    I'd like to see Craig do a few more movies? Really like him as Bond.

    It's the Prince Harry effect.

    Of all the mentioned actors I like Tom Hardy the best, however, I don't know that he'd make a good 007.

    Ginger is a definite 'No'!

    Right after this came out, they were shooting any change down for at least a few more movies the next day.
    Cheers,

    I think the best Bonds have an element of unpredictability and danger in them. You feel that you wouldn't really want to be too close to them. It's always slightly different and, I suppose, may be that it's something of the actors' personality leaking through.
    In DC's case, it feels like he has a bit of something pent up inside. Something that might make you want to be careful what you say but, nevertheless, he feels like he's a decent man wrestling with his nature.
    Connery's Bond felt like a bit of a sociopath. He seemed like someone who could do something appalling, not give it a second thought, and proceed to a victory that he wouldn't really care about. He was hugely charismatic but you knew that, were you to meet him, he'd regard you with contempt assuming that he even spared you a thought.

    I think Tom Hardy could do the physically imposing part of Bond but, for me, Fassbender is the one who could you make you feel like it's dangerous to be around him. His Magneto made Ian McKellen's version look like an affable old fart while, at the same time, being a completely sympathetic character.

    Henry Cavill may be able to pull it off but the others seem like horrible choices.

    I loved Casino Royale, it might be my favorite Bond movie, but each movie after I've liked less than the one before. I'm hoping Spectre is more to my liking.

    Here is Cavill in a suit.

    Same here. Here hoping Spectre will fill that void.
