    The new James Bond??????

    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

    "Overexposed" comes to mind...

    Plus the idea behind the movie kind of reminds me of "Muppet Babies" or "Young Flintstones."

    'Talentless' and 'wooden' are the terms that come to mind for me.

    The guy has made a career out of being a background actor in the ensemble cast of a couple of huge movie franchises. Go look at the reviews for the LOTR trilogy and you'll find only one cast member was universally panned for his performance. Look at the reviews Pirates of the Carribean and you'll see the same thing. Ditto for his 'performance' in Troy. Then, of course, there is his leading role in the critically panned box office failure Kingdom of Heaven.

    If Orlando Bloom is the best the Bond folks can do, they might as well drag out George Lazenby's withered old carcass and prop him up in front of the cameras.

    Re: The new James Bond??????

    So they are now going to be running two Bond franchises at once?

    Frankly, I'm having a hard time believing this.

    I've always wanted to see Sean Connery play an old retired James Bond on film, or perhaps take over the role of M.

    Okay, I thought Brosnan was coming back for one more film, and now I see this.

    He has just proved his ladykilling credentials by seducing Sienna Miller from under the nose of his friend, Jude Law.

    Now Daniel Craig is about to become the biggest seducer of all - Ian Fleming's James Bond.

    The actor, who found fame as Geordie in the BBC series Our Friends in the North in 1996, got the job after an 18-month mission to replace Pierce Brosnan.

    Scores of others, including Law himself, Ewan McGregor, Colin Farrell and Orlando Bloom, were considered but rejected.

    In the end a shortlist of two emerged - Craig and newcomer Henry Cavill. The pair were auditioned again and tried on tuxedos to see how they would look in the quintessential Bond clothing.

    Craig, 37, whose choice will be confirmed by producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson later this week, will be the sixth Bond, but the first blond.

    He will star in the 21st Bond film, based on Ian Fleming's first book Casino Royale.

    Craig has said he does not like the fact that the films are more about gadgets than feelings.

    He added: 'It's a big machine and it makes a lot of money - so why would you change something that makes a lot of money?'

    Neither of these really strike me as reliable sources.

    Well now that we know that it's going to be Craig, does he look like Bond?

    Reuters and AP are reporting it as well so those are pretty reliable sources.

    To me Bond is the persona, not as much the look.

    I am sure he is more screen friendly than Jason Alexander.

    They would have been just as effective choosing Clay Aiken. Gawwwd.

    Okay, so I'm probably in a minority here, but I actually like this decision. Craig was good in Road to Perdition, and I like the fact that he is English. I am also very hopeful when he says that he wants the Bond films to get back to the story rather than on all of the gadgets. Remember when Bond actually used to spy and play double agent?

    Many people once said the same thing about Roger Moore.
