What about Colin Firth?

Both are Virgos, as is Lazenby.
Connery's moon is in Virgo, Firth's in Taurus. Still, Taurus and Virgo are both Earth signs.
Don't know about Ascendant. Connery's is in Capricorn, don't know Firth's; probably in Virgo, if I had to guess.
Both have Mercury in Virgo, Venus in Libra, and Mars in Gemini. These are the 3 most important planets after Sun, Moon, and Ascendant.
Connery's Jupiter is in Cancer, Firth's in Sagittarius. Big difference there.
They both have Saturn in Capricorn.
Connery's Uranus is in Aries, Firth's in Leo. Both Fire signs, then.
Connery's Neptune is in Virgo, Firth's in Scorpio. Different, yes, but not too much.
Connery's Pluto is in Cancer, Firth's in Virgo.
It seems that having a lot of Earth signs in the chart makes for a good 007. Connery's Virgo-Virgo-Cap combination makes him solid as rock and tough as nails, not to mention of course masculine.
While I know this won't hold water with everybody, I'd still like to know what you think. So tell me.

Now, I was watching a preview of Bridget Jones' Diary on the weekend (ace movie ) and I looked at Firth and thought the same thing.
He doesn't have the 'exact' right look but he has the potential I'd say! He'd just need to keep his new slimmer build and get a bit more actiony. He's got the gentelman down pay but now he has to lose the Mr Darcy image and use a damn gun

I can't imagine him as a James Bond.

Ticket sales will rocket in england because - unlike Brosnan - women will pay to watch anything that he is in.
If I even say the words "Colin Firth" to any of my female friends they will spend the next 20 minutes stairing into the distance. After ten minutes they will begin to drool.
And... if anyone is worried about him not suiting violence... he's a bloody good actor so he can take on any part. And isn't that what the producers are looking for in the new Bond era... bloody good actors like Judi Dench, Samantha Bond and Micheal Kitchen.
Also call me an old traditionalist but isn't it about time we had an ENGLISH Bind who isn't the embarrassing inuendo spouting mess that is Roger Moore?

Anyhow I believe he was a tad chubby in it (I haven't watched it all yet, so I haven't come across Firth).
But watch him in Bridget Jones' Diary. He has some James Bond qualities. Like when he bashes the s***e out of Hugh Grant!!
