Then we’re agreed. Doug Hutchison circa The Green Mile is the next Bond.
Know who used to look kind of like the literary Bond? Ian McKellen:
Nah, the eyes and mouth aren’t cold enough for me. That said the looks don’t matter all that much, it’s how they play the character so it’s interesting to imagine what a quality actor like Mckellen would have done in the part.
I’ve never read James Bond but the way you guys are describing him makes me think of Mark Strong
