Exactly how he feels about Diesel and Gibson on the set of those movies when he called them out on social media.

Who is Jason Statham?
Exactly

I looked him up and I still don't know him.
This is who he is...



He's kind of generic. Now I've always liked Clive Owen and thought he would make a great James Bond.
Yeah he would have but I think it's too late now. They should have chose him instead of Daniel Craig.
Now, Craig's 49 & Owen's 52. Craig started as a new double O in Casino Royale. What if they start Owen as an older, veteran double O? What would you think of that?

Coincidentally (or maybe not?), Owen had an uncredited cameo in 2006's Pink Panther as Agent 006. This was less than a year before Craig's debut as 007.

Bond has to be old enough to be classy yet young enough to be athletic. It's kind of a tight rope walk.
Well, there's real age and onscreen looking age.
Craig's Bond is supposed to be much younger than his real age. And he pulls it off.
As I said, Craig's 49 and if he does another Bond flick he'll probably be at least 52 by then...but I doubt anyone will say that he's too old. Complaints about him are usually in the form of him being ugly or the lemon-whatever the hell-duck face he's making.

Brosnan was Bond until 49.

Moore was Bond until 58.

I can't imagine how anyone thought having Daniel Craig play Bond was a good idea. He has no personality.

Well, at the time, I thought Pierce Brosnan was a good choice but it didn't matter since most of his Bond flicks were garbage. Aside from Goldeneye, they were some of the worst of the 007 lot.

Craig's Quantum of Solace is one of the worst ones too. It stands as the only Bond flick that I fell asleep in at the cinema.
Still, I did like Casino Royale a lot. And thinking of Bond before he became 007 is the reason why I asked about going in the opposite direction and having an older Bond (and different actor). He'd be slower and not as athletic of course but he'd also be more experienced, more cunning, and possibly even more lethal.

Also, I did like Craig in Road to Perdition. What a damn snake! I thought Layer Cake (which came out a couple of years before Casino Royale) was enjoyable too. He was a bit of a weasel in that too. There are even some Bond-like poses in there as if he were trying out for the part. I'm sure that had something to do with him getting the Bond gig.

Remembering now...Superman Henry Cavill was strongly considered for Casino Royale but they thought he was too young. He was in his early 20s then. I think I might've been ok with him as young Bond. Anyway...

I'd be okay with an older Bond if the person had class and a charming personality. I'd forgotten about Pierce Brosnan. That always struck me as a poor choice too since he's really effeminate too. Maybe they were trying to go for more of a manly type man with Craig but then they ended up with a lemon sucking robot.

:lol:
One of my bros said a very similar thing to the lemon sucking thing when Casino Royale was new. Specifically, he said, "It's a good movie but what's up with him making his pouty lip puckering?!" :lol:

So if Moore & Brosnan were too effeminate and Craig is lemony lips, which Bonds were good?

IF there were an older Bond, say 45+, who would you want to replace Craig?
Or, any age, who would you want as the next 007?

Sean Connery is the only Bond I thought really fit. George Lazenby was pretty good but not enough screen presence.  As far as who I think might fit the role now that's tough.  The two that pop to the top of my head would be Sean Bean or Ewan McGregor.
Sean Bean was a villain.  Ewan McGregor? Ewwwwwwww.

Was a villain? He's been lots of different characters in many movies. And Ewan McGregor? Haven't seen him in anything yet that he hasn't been very good.

He was even a Bond villain in Goldeneye.

Then again, the guy who Jason throws against a wall in F13 Jason Takes Canada Manhattan ended up playing him in the matchup against Freddy replacing Kane Hodder.

"Faster" with The Rock and Billy Bob Thornton was an under the radar movie I enjoyed.  

"Central Intelligence" was better than I would of expected.

"San Andreas" was a fun watch.

Never saw any of the Fast & Furious movies.

He's got a funny against type small role in the sequel to Get Shorty, Be Cool, as a gay bodyguard.

Now that Willis is too old, Statham is a good replacement.
