I've heard rumors that Idris Elba would be the next Bond which would be quite a bold move.

Elba! That dude is hardcore. Honestly, I hope Craig sticks around. If not, Elba would be really cool.

Got to admit, that would be awesome and completely unexpected. Was a huge fan of his work on Luther.

Plenty of good choices among the UK actors (or Batman) would be fine like what's in this though it depends on if they decide to stick with the new Borne identity format or go back to how it was.

@bananaz: @Humanity: I would love Elba as Bond, but I think he might be two old if they do end up doing two more with Craig.

@Bell_End:

Bond: "Well, it's a bit funny, innit? Wants to take over the world, but he's spending years just building a lair on some volcano. Just building. What if the volcano erupts? No more building. Waste of time, that."

M: "WHAT IF THE VOLCANO ERUPTS? HAAAAAAA!" - how I imagine a Karl Pilkington Bond film

Sorry for being a party pooper, but I'm tired of James Bond movies and would rather see something new. So I'll say no one should play the next James Bond.

They should make the next guy a young anarchist kid who is anti-establishment and edgy as fuck. They can call him JB, the spykiller.

But for real, Jake Gyllenhaal would be unexpected.

@psylah: I don't think they would ever cast a non-Brit as Bond and honestly I wouldn't want them to.

Edit: as non-Brit I meant "The Islands" as I am fully aware Sean Connory was Scottish.

But the previous Bonds just aren't cool. If any James Bond walked into a bar, he'd get laughed at! We need a young, reckless, anarchist Bond.

Who looks just like me.

Yeah, that's cool.

I'm having a hard time seeing how Mr. Cumberbatch can be described as handsome. He was outstanding in Sherlock though, I'll give you that.

I would of said Tom Hardy before he took on Splinter Cell so now I will say James McAvoy from Wanted\X Men Origins or Joseph Gordon Levitt to be in a Bond origin story.

Henry Cavill

Micheal Fassbender

Edit: The other choices are good as well, and Idris Elba would be interesting. Y'know what would be more interesting? Y'wanna get your mind blown?

Jane Bond.

Female Bond. Stick that in your brain pipe and inhale the fumes. No idea who would play that role, but as an interesting thought exercise do any Brit's want to chime in on female actors that could play that kind of role?

Who should play 007 after Craig? Hell if I know, the last problem those films have is the lead actor. Who will play him? Someone no one has named here thus far. It'll be yet another slightly renown in his country-british actor who hasn't had any big hits yet. So no Fassbenders here.

Have you seen Skyfall? It was anything but Borne Identity. Even the fight sequences were often like the old Bond movies.

idris elba is hot property right now and is more than capable of being a really exciting bond. I've always been a fan of clive owen for bond, but he's gone off the boil a bit recently.

i wonder whether damien lewis could pull off bond?

the real question is, if that happened, would she be a lesbian or would she be into dudes?
