In all fairness, isn't Hardy kinda short for Bond? I love him but not sure if he'll look the part.

He's only an inch shorter than Craig. If they can movie magic Tom Cruise into Ethan Hunt, they can easily deal with Hardy.

Not sure how much weight you wanna put in that rumor, though.

They don't pick internationally known actors so he was never in the running

I'd take Tom Hardy as Bond over Hiddleston any day of the week. Hiddleston just looks like a pushover, especially compared to Craig and guys like Hardy.

The Night Manager was a great series, Hiddleston has the suave English gentleman down.

But I'm sure there are plenty others who could do the part as well.

Tom Hiddleston looks like the guy you want to see get his ass kicked, usually by guys like Tom Hardy. He'd be a good Bond villain.

YUP

Although if Craig is the reboot's Connery (and he is) Hiddleston would make sense if you're trying to go for the reboot Roger Moore.

Remember when there was a rumor that Jamie Bell was going to pick up where Craig left off? Like they were trying to get someone who looked enough like Craig that they could continue their continuity-heavy take on the character.

I like Stevens but not for Bond - he's too boyishly handsome. Bond calls for somebody more rugged and world-weary.

LMAO. I don't think I like the idea of Hardy as Bond either, but I couldn't put a finger on why. That description...might actually nail it.

Do you think they'll ever realise that the two good films of Craig's are the self-contained ones and the bad ones are the ones that try to be some kind of Bond Expanded Universe?

Hiddleston should be 007 for 90 minutes until he gets killed and then replaced by Idris.

Bad guy is Sean Harris.

Trouble is Hiddleston doesn't sell the effortless swagger of Bond. He'd look like he's trying to be Bond, not become Bond. Actors like him and Cavill would be Lazenby to Moore tier.

What in the fuck? No.

Hiddleston would make a decent Bond I guess. He'd definitely be closer to a Brosnan Bond than a Craig Bond. I could see it working but he just seems a bit too posh IMO.

I remember when their were rumors/talks/bullshitting about Damian Lewis possibly being Bond. At first I hated the idea but I could actually see him pulling off the character better than Hiddleston can.

-edit-
Can't be said enough....Angelina Jolie Bond....what in the fuck?

I'm pretty into the Craig-style bond at the moment (been re-watching all but QoS on-and-off over the past few weeks) and I just can't see Bond being scrawnier.

I haven't seen The Night Manager [yet], so maybe Hiddleston could do Bond just as well as Craig, but I reckon Hardy could nail the current style.

To be honest, as long as they don't go back to pre-Casino Royal cheesiness -- a la the Brosnan era -- I guess I don't really mind too much who they cast.

Personally, I would have loved Clive if he were 10 years younger:

Yep,even Brosnan looks tougher than him but it's easily fixable if he starts hitting the gym and all that.
I wouldn't mind a Bond that is more brains than muscles though.

Either of them would be OK with me. Henry would have been my first choice based on his looks alone, he's such a wooden actor though...

Maybe, but considering how audiences are responding to the notion of films as chapters in an ongoing continuity-heavy miniseries, I doubt they go back to that - even with a recast.

edit: Cavill actually was one of the finalists for Bond before Craig got it, I think?
