Hello Mr. Bond, would you like to be blonde?

So, the word's out eh? Daniel Craig is the new 007. I honestly haven't seen Layer Cake so I can't say with any authority if this guy is any good. Matter of fact Tomb Raider was the only movie of his that I have seen and his character was an A-grade idiot in that one and the role didn't really have much substance in it anyway. Either way, you don't need substance to be Bond. All you need in charisma, machismo, sense of style, martini drinking habits and of course the most important aspect "debonnair". Go look up that term and you'll know what I'm talking about.

He maybe English and he may have everything the part needs but that last part is something he'll really have to bring out on screen a.la. Pierce Brosnan with Izabella Scorupco in Goldeneye. That will define him as Bond. He is supposed to be a dyed-in-wool character actor so I would give him a chance and see how it goes. But, Mr. Brosnan is a hard act to follow for sure.

Anyway, in related news the lovable and deliriously sexy Miss. Moneypenny will not be coming back in the new movie due to the story's flashback to Bond's early service at the MI-6. Another notable exclusion of course is "Q". The new guy was okay but really you've gotta miss the old "Q", he was the bomb with his incessant chiding of 007.

Also, thankfully no more Halle Berry in the bond movies. That was a mistake that does not need to be repeated. Ugh! It was terrible! Die Another Day should've died on the cutting floor! Hopefully Mr. Craig will restore some order at MI-6 and bring those damned villains in line.
