In Topic: Who do you want for Bond 7? * POLL ADDED*

If the betting is coming in big on Hardy, then he won't get it.  Looking back at the last search, the names of those who were getting the big bucks put down on them were pretty far off the mark when the dust settled and Craig was announced as Bond.

Could the Bond franchise really be considered "steady work" is the real question, though.  If Barbara and Michael came to Cavill with a solid plan of where they were going to go with the films and had something mapped out where it was reasonable to assume that we'd get a steady dose of Bond films over a set period of time, that would be one thing, but EON doesn't seem to have things figured out in that matter.  Cavill would be in the same position as he is as Superman, waiting around for the studio to make up its mind.  He can at least crash other superheroes' films as part of the DC Universe.  Can't do that as Bond.

In Topic: Sir Roger Moore (1927-2017)

This one was a punch to the gut when a coworker told me about it Tuesday morning right before we were getting ready to start the day.  Just a terrible loss.  While he wasn't my #1 favorite Bond, I can't say that I ever really had a bad time watching Moore as Bond.  He's a bit like Tom Cruise for me in that regard, the quality of the film can be up or down, but Roger Moore never failed to entertain me.  I could always walk away from one of his Bond films feeling as though I'd had fun.  

 

Factor in that and his humanitarian work, about which not enough can be said, and the world lost a great one.  RIP Mr. Moore. :(

EON also has the track record of going back to actors who have impressed them in the past or that they've had an eye on for some time, as they did with Moore, Dalton, and Brosnan.  Debbie McWilliams' comments on Friend, in addition to CBn's own reporting back around the time of Casino Royale that stated that he gave a very impressive reading for the role, would indicate that, regardless of whether he lands the part or not, he'll at least be one of the names tossed around by EON when the time comes.  That's probably more than can be said about some of the names being thrown about the last few months.
