Favorite actor to play James Bond?

I really liked Tim. He was brooding.
Hands-down Timothy Dalton and I'm not being ironic. He's better looking than Connery, more genuinely charming (not so winky-wink) than Moore, and just dangerous enough to be thoroughly believable.
The rest don't count. I never saw Lazen-whats-his-face film, Brosnan was too "Remington Steele" for me, and Craig just…well, I just don't find him at all attractive and I need me some Bond eye-candy.
Ya know I didn't think Daniel would make a good Bond. I was a die hard Sean and Roger woman with a twist of Pierce, but I LOVE Daniel Craig. I also love his chemistry with M. Just awesome.
You made me giggle too! Nice to know that a part of me will always remain a giggling teenager… 🙂
Roger Moore. The dude was in a movie called Octopussy, which made me giggle as a kid, and now, if I'm honest. Yes..even as I typed it I LMFAO.
Connery will always be THE James Bond. However, I love Daniel Craig and Pierce. I also liked Dalton a lot, too. Moore was enjoyable, but his got kind of silly. The only one I didn't like was Lazenby. I love me some James Bond films!
Niven in the jokey Casino Royale next, and as for the first guy to play Bond, Barry Nelson (also CR), the less said about him the better…
Connery -> Craig -> Dalton -> Brosnan -> Moore -> Lazenby
I loved Sean but I think Daniel Craig is great
Pierce Brosnan, Roger Moore, then Sean Connery. Daniel Craig doesn't do it for me, I agree about the blond hair thing.
Sean Connery. I don't like Daniel Craig as Bond simply because he's blonde and Bond has always had black hair so I don't see him as Bond.
Even though he's not a very nice person, Sean Connery will always be the man I think of as James Bond.
Brosnan is my favorite, even though he was in the worst of all the Bond films (TWINE).
Moore is who I think of as "Bond", simply because he was Bond when I was growing up.
Connery was good at originating the roll.
Dalton was simply a caretaker Bond until Brosnan was available.
Lazenby was a joke.
Craig ISN'T Bond. He's "Jason Bourne".
Bond films shouldn't be dark and gritty. Now the franchise is just another action franchise with none of the charm it used to have.
Timothy Dalton. 🙂
Sean. All other are pretenders to the Bond throne.
No one's ever done it as well as Sean Connery.
Sean Connery, he was so perfect in that role.
Roger Moore, then Connery, then the rest.
I vote for Idris! Faves: Connery & Brosnan
an absolutely no to Idris-sorry
Sean Connery #1Daniel Craig edging in at a coming closer 2
Brosnan, then Craig
@iceberg then Idris should get in there lol
Craig coming out of the water – not even sure which one – but my goodness. If I wasn't with my husband I would have groaned out lod. He is the best eye candy. I will fantasize about Idris doing the same *sigh*.
Brosnan – then Roger Moore. Do not like Daniel Craig at all in the role. And I second the Idris Elba vote. The sooner the better please.
Daniel Craig revived my interest in the James Bond franchise. I wonder who the next one will be. I heard they're thinking about Idris Elba.
clive owen. but of the ones who have actually plyed him, pierce.
@dragon- Ha! I like it.
I'm torn between Sean and Pierce. I was disappointed when Bond went blonde but I just recently watched Daniel in Casino Royale and really enjoyed it.
Even though I loved Steve McQueen, Pierce was an awesome Thomas Crown.
Pierce. He was suave, and timeless kind of looking, without being over the top muscle hardened.
I don't really like the new bonds. They don't even seem like the fit with the other series at all. I know they wanted to revamp and get a younger audience, but I think they lost a lot of the older audience. The last once my husband fell asleep in the theatre, he said it was boring, and he think Craig is the best one lol.
For classic suave crime fighting, Pierce Brosnan.
Daniel Craig doesn't really go in the mix because he's a dark reboot of the series (kind of like trying to compare Christian Bale with Michael Keaton, et. al.) and in my mind is set apart. Personally, I love the gritty reboot.
@The Real Dragon I think he's already said he's getting tired of doing them. I know he's in for at least one more, but he may or may not do the one after that.
Pierce Brosnan. The cheesiness of the franchise during his tenure was totally not his fault, and I think he did the best he could. I also think he's unfairly blamed for it sometimes. Goddamn he's handsome. And charming. Daniel Craig is hot, but not nearly as likeable.
No, he wasn't.
@ blfo – ditto. Pierce was a HOT James Bond.
All others are merely chasing the vapor trails of Sean Connery's coolness.
Just kidding! Everybody hates that guy. Poor Timothy. He was awful.
@iceberg. I dont know how long Daniel is going to be milking the bond series
I'm with The Real Dragon. But why do we have to wait until 2025?
Roger Moore.Pierce Brosnan.
I preferred my bond tall dark and handsome.
Sean for the classic, Daniel for the here and now.
George Lazenby. Just kidding! 😉I loved Sean, Roger and Pierce in their own era. Craig isn't suave and debonair enough for me but I do like the films. They're fun.
Sean. Hands down.
