Technically anyone can play James Bond since he isn't a single individual. Shaft was written to be a black character so that's a bad comparison.

thank you.

BINGO!

motherfu*kas damn near lost their minds when someone tweeted about Donald Glover being the next Spiderman
thats cause donald glover is annoying, and painfull to both watch and listen to. the only word to describe him is corny/

Great actor but for Bond? No.... fu*k no. Can you imagine him walking up to a bartender being like "A 40 or malt liquor. Shaken. Not stirred."

Doesn't have the same ring to it.
moron


most of this thread is black people complaing about white people complaining before the white people had a chance to complain.

i wouldnt have a problem with it, it would actually be pretty good, but it doesnt matter cause black people will stick up for any black person trying to do this role, and white people will do anything to keep it white.

2012 everyone needs to grow up

James Bond is named after an American bird watcher.

And for the most part, his eccentricities are based on Flemming himself.


Im not sure who these other people you speak of are.


Also, He's a fictional character. He can be anything.


See this is what I was talking about. It's just gonna be narrow minded white Americans getting heated about this.


Just look at the new Spiderman

Miles Morales. He's black and latino.

did you just compare spiderman to james bond

i'm not american.

james bond the character that ian fleming created, is a fictional white character. Read the books, read the history, look at the original drawings, cartoons, films. WHITE.

there will never be a black james bond i'm certain of it. These comic book characters are only just changing for a gimmick to gain a larger audience. Don't get mad it's never happening makes me laugh that americans think this will happen though

Significant controversy followed the decision, as it was doubted if the producers had made the right choice. Throughout the entire production period Internet campaigns expressed their dissatisfaction and threatened to boycott the film in protest.[16] The 5'10 (178cm) blond Craig, unlike previous actors, was not considered by the protesters to fit the tall, dark, handsome image of Bond to which viewers had been accustomed. The Daily Mirror ran a front page news story critical of Craig, with the headline, "The Name's Bland – James Bland."

So if people are willing to boycott the film because daniel craig didn't fit the image how the fu*k is idris? fu*king idiots on this site I swear. Can tell the americans chatting all this sh*t are new to the james bond series and know little about the stereotypical british tradition and culture this film is actually about. Typical american answer to try and milk a still very successful franchise for no reason other then a few black people on boxden will it's a good idea. Ask any black british person who knows about this and they'll tell you how stupid you sound.

white folks would riot

they rather have a white american do a terrible brittish accent than have a black bond
thats a lie Im a white American and I think the whole franchise needs a total face lift Idris would be a really good change of scenery and in my opinion he has been one of the most consistent actors of the past decade from his work on the wire and RockNRolla even alot of the small roles he has played made shows excellent

That's stupid. Nothing racist about it either. That's like having a white dude play Shaft. I would watch but I'd respect the 007 franchise a little less for giving in to the weight of social racial bull sh*t.
Apples and Oranges, Shaft was known to be a black man. James Bond is just known to be English not a white English man. So in a sense its very racist. I expect more out of you Brody and I would love to see a white Shaft. They should cast Michael Cera as the next Shaft, word to Don Glover.

1. Sean Connery to my knowledge is Scottish
with that said the Bond franchise is one of the longest running film franchises . I doubt we will see anything other than a white James T. Kirk or a Indiana Jones or Batman or Rocky or Spiderman . You dont mess with a good thing . A casting director is not gonna take that shot its not logical . There really is not a black movie franchise to compare it to other than Shaft and Shaft will always be black . I remember when Diddy thought he had a chance at being Bond . They probably allready have the next Bond allready picked .

Gona have to agree with that I think of him more as British than White. I think of him as both but if I had to choose one...

All the Bonds minus Dalton have not been what Fleming created

Flemings creation was destroyed and Bond is now a movie franchise and little to do with the books.

The fact is we will see a black british bond sooner or later and it will not really be a shock nor a issue, it'll draw in the crowds.

People talkin all this sh*t about white racism...

Yes there is still some racism. But have you looked at the 2 term President of the U.S. recently? Last I checked the U.S. was still 80+ percent Caucasian and we elected a black president, but of course there would be riots over a black James Bond get the fu*k outta here...

How is that an adequate comparison? You sound like an idiot.

Also; Really? Those are the only prominent black portrayed characters you people can think of?

- Shaft
- Blade
- Anton Jackson (from Undercover Brother)


anyway,

The difference is, FOR THE 30TH TIME IN THIS THREAD

Those are all characters who are written as innately black.

James Bond is more of an English spy, than a "White" spy. Thats the most important aspect.

Especially because, it can be interpreted that James Bond is a code name (A secret agent wouldn't be using his government name) and 007 is an agent status within the MI6 spy agency.

Thus why there are so many different James Bond's over the years. Why woundn't a black agent be able to acquire 007 status?
You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to TheMindOf again.
