I'd rather them come up with another bond like charecter... But he could pull it off.. I'm glad he is a black actor and his only black role was on the wire... All the other roles he had could be interchangeable racially and he is acclaimed.. So I'd take it.
Never noticed that

You're dumb c*ck shiner.



You're retarded you fu*king pickle kisser.



Since you were able to come with an intelligent response without name calling I'll fu*k with ya.

My thing is this, Ian Fleming based James Bond character on his brother, Peter Fleming? I think is his name. And a couple other people. Including himself.



Just like Shaft was loosely based off his author. How do you think Ernest Tidyman would feel if his character was played by a white dude? How do you think Ian Fleming would feel is James Bond was played by a black dude? Why is one ok and the others not?

I do agree that Bond is less affiliated with his color than Shaft. But they're both fictional characters. If you can change one, why not the other?

Plus as a writer myself. If somebody changed something like that about one of my characters I'd be pissed about it.

Like I said I'm sure Elba could do it. It's just a big jump for me. I've grown up watching old James Bond movies AND old Shaft movies. And FOR ME, seeing a black Bond. Would be like seeing a white Shaft. I shouldve made that point more clearly with my initial comparison.


But whatever. I'm sure it would be good. I love Elba. Would just take some getting used to.

All you guys calling people "stupid" and "retarded" it's usually the stupid people who do that first.
Suck my d!ck from the back while I sh*t up your nose bi*ches.

original quote was false actually, didn't idris play a god in thor
that sh*t caught me off guard, like seriously a norse god is going to be black

he still did an excellent job doing the part though, he's done a great job in the wire I thought, that's one of my favourite series ever. I still don't think a black bond would be appropriate. You guys feel the same if a chinese/thai person became james bond next just because they were british? How about spanish or latino? Or are you guys saying you want a black bond because you are black yourselves and want to see yourselves in that bond position

I seriously doubt it'll ever happen, but if it does i'll still watch it and no doubt i'll enjoy it.

I still find it funny that all white people can a.ssociate with Black people is Shaft. As if that's the only character we ever had.

Also, still haven't heard a rebuttal for M being portrayed by a woman since the 90's. Guess it would have only been a problem if she was a Black woman.

James Bond was not written in the books as a White guy, people just a.ssumed he was White from already established films.. Anyone could play him, so I see no problem with this.. People making dumb comparisons saying What if a White guy played Shaft, I see no problem with that either, even though Shaft was written as a Black character..

You seem like a douche bag who's a lot stupider than he thinks he is. Talk about someone being ignorant. Did you even read my post?



It's called a different perspective and there's nothing wrong with it. As a writer I would be mad if somebody changed something like that about a character I created. I'm not, nor did I ever, say Fleming wouldn't like Elba. All I'm saying is we don't know. We do know Tidyman wouldn't like Shaft as a black dude. But that's ok because he was more racially affiliated?

And like I said PAGES ago. I just don't like change. Which is why I said I didn't like the George Lazenby James Bonds BECAUSE OF HIS SHIRT. Lol they changed his shirt and I didn't like it.

Can you comprehend what I'm saying?

Everybody is so racially sensitive nowadays you can't even have an opinion without being labeled an "angry little white boy." Lol



Look how angry I sound.
Yep... I skimmed through it. Just looked like a bunch of backtracking to me.

I'm not racist... I-I-I mean he could do it, I'm sure!... I-I-I-oh come on! I didn't like the one white guy's shirt! I'm just picky! I don't like change! Oh come onnnn! The author wouldn't like this! What about his wishes? This is absurd!

Seems like you just think we're dumber than you think we are. You take James Bond, a spy, and compare him to Shaft, who was always a black detective... and thought that was a relevant comparison. Then try to cop a plea while shifting blame on everyone else for 8 pages.

You're just some corny white boy who doesn't know anything about black entertainment. That's pretty evident. You were wrong. You're a buffoon. Accept your L and keep it movin.
