"English actor Daniel Craig (http://www.imdb.com/gallery/granitz/3025/Events/3025/DanielCrai_Wargo_4839892_400.jpg?path=pg allery&path_key=Craig,%20Daniel%20(I)) has been chosen to replace Pierce Brosnan (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000112/) as the next James Bond. Craig, who is the first blond Bond, will take on the iconic superspy when filming for Casino Royale (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0381061/) begins in January. The 37-year-old beat off competition from Clive Owen (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0654110/), Hugh Jackman (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0413168/) and unknown actor Henry Cavill (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0147147/) to star in the movie directed by Martin Campbell (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0132709/) - who worked with Brosnan on Goldeneye (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113189/)."

Well, I wonder if anybody saw this coming? I'll be very interested to see how the new Bond film turns out. Hopefully it will be truer to the original movies than the ones that Pierce (Smarm-master) Brosnan has starred in.

What do you think? Who would you have cast as the new Bond? Maybe you think that Bond has been completely done to death and should be allowed to dissappear with dignity?

Bond's naff. That being said, Daniel Craig is a good choice. His name was floated around a while ago and I thought at the time it'd be interesting to see them take a slightly different spin on things. The last couple of Bond movies have bored me to tears.

I think I probably would have got you as the new bond Kristen, seen as you and him lead pretty similar lifes don't you think?

We have had a Scotsman, an Australian, an Englishman, a Welshman and an Irishman play Bond. Maybe we should have a New Zealander or Canadian play him some time. Out of all the guys who have so far played him, they all did a good job apart from Timothy Dalton who took the whole thing too seriously.

What I expect in a Bond film is to be frightened in order to be thrilled, at least one rascal scene, interesting henchmen and characterization of the villain. In the Brosnon years the only Villain who has any character was Jonathan Pryce as Eliot Carver in Tomorrow Never Dies. Sean Bean in Goldeneye seemed to be a far too decent character to play a villain. The redeming feature of Licence ToKill is the rascal scene at the end.

Sean Bean in Goldeneye seemed to be a far too decent character to play a villain.Check him out in 'Essex Boys' and see if you still feel the same way!
