Wouldn't Hopkins be too old for a 00?
Dalton deserved to do other films. He was a wasted opportunity. The people seemed to have wanted Brosnan instead of a Bond who would be more human yet more ruthless. We wouldn't get crap like TND if we had Dalton. Dalton would have inspired better writing.
I am glad they went that better actor route with Daniel Craig, his films wouldn't be half as good if the writers didn't think he'd had potential. He even did a few rewrites on QoS because tthey were given a shitty script.
The stuff from Skyfall, all pioneered by Dalton. The irony is that Human Bond starts with George Lazenby. Connery probably would have wanted to be more human if he wasn't restricted. Watch the scene in Thunderball when he puts on sunglasses to hide his emotions when Domino talks about her brother. After that Connery looks like a Vulcan.
Dalton deserved at least three more films.
