Pierce Brosnan Backs First Black James Bond [Why Not P-Diddy?]
Telegraph (U.K.) ^ | James Lachno

Posted on 04/13/2013 8:28:26 PM PDT by Steelfish

Pierce Brosnan Backs First Black James Bond Former 007 Pierce Brosnan says black British actor Colin Salmon would make an "outstanding" James Bond, but there is no rush to replace Daniel Craig.

The first black Bond?: British actor Colin Salmon By James Lachno 13 Apr 2013 Pierce Brosnan has suggested that Colin Salmon would be his pick to become the first black James Bond.

The Irish actor, 59, who is about to appear in a Danish romantic comedy called Love Is All You Need, was asked who might replace current 007 Daniel Craig in the film franchise.

He said: "I've always thrown Colin Salmon's name in the mix. He's somebody I have worked with closely over the years. He would be outstanding and I think it would be absolutely essential."

Brosnan played James Bond in four films in the 1990s and 2000s, before Daniel Craig took over as the international man of mystery for Casino Royale in 2006.

Salmon, 50, appeared alongside Brosnan in three James Bond films – Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day – as MI6 Deputy Chief of Staff Charles Robinson. His other film roles include Resident Evil and Alien vs. Predator.

First gay Bond.

First woman Bond.

First cross-dressing transsexual Bond.

First animal-loving Bond.

First sex-with-objects Bond.

Okay, the idiocy has been talked about. Now we can skip it altogether.

Hell, Snipes would be fun in some role. Heck, he is a cult hero on our side, tax protestor and all.

The question is, does the world really NEED a black James Bond? Can we expect to see an Asian James Bong in the future? This is some really dumb sh*t.

I have no problem at all with a black James Bond, just saying that I never took any James Bond seriously since Roger Moore

Did not think Brosnan was believable as Bond...and to hurt my credibility never watched a Bond Movie since Roger Moore. just thought the whole idea was a joke after Connery/Moore

While I never watched any since, I know who all the characters are roughly

If they do something like that then the Bond franchise is done for me.

I think i’ll stick with the first four Bond films.The rest can be filed in a museum.

It sounds pretty stupid, unless they make a serious effort, like using Denzel Washington.

Yikes, I googled him, he is 58 years old, but he could still play a 45 year old Bond I suppose.

For me, the character of James Bond lost credibility when they went out of their way to show that he wasn’t a smoker (I think it was Tomorrow Never Dies.). Screw it, I’ll just read the novels by Ian Fleming from now on!

Sorry, I don’t want a list of future PC James Bonds. However, I must say, this Salmon guy is mighty good looking. Has those rugged facial features many (both men and women) like. Just not as James Bond, who was always a white guy, by the way. Just sayin....

You are partially right.
I have not watched a single Bond since Connery.
Moore was no more a serious Bond than he was a serious Maverick.
Moore was the Saint.

A black Bond?
You gotta be chittin me. Bond was described in every Fleming book as a SCOTSMAN. Not a black Scotsman. A Scotsman.
This Affirmative Action crap is really going too far.
What next?
Nathan B. Forrest played by Samuel L. Jackson?

I never was a fan of Bond movies, in fact I mostly hated them, but the new ones with Craig are very good.

Even the coolest Bond, (Sean Connery type), needs to show a hint of something in there, and smoking is the perfect imperfection to convey a hint of the personality of the man living that lifestyle of violence and death and risk, no matter how controlled and composed that he appears on the surface.

Ru Paul is James Bond.

He is too busy in his continual run for president and his home school curriculum with a bunch of truthers.

No

Looks too old and out of shape. Not very impressive in a suit.

And he looks like Yul Brenner with a tan.

They would have lost credibilty with me if Bond were a smoker and he didn't collapse gasping for air everytime he had to chase or fight somebody.

No kidding.

I remember getting up to walk out of the first Iron Man at the credits when someone sitting behind me said "wait, there's an extra scene at the end."

I was FLOORED at the sight of Samuel L. Jackson wearing the eye-patch, and think he's been perfect in the Nick Fury role. The only issue I've had with the character is that they didn't go with the much better alternate ending scene in Captain America.

You might not know how common smoking was among elite soldiers and marines in the past, it might still be.

Last time I cared what Pierce Brosnan thought was when I...wait a second...I have NEVER cared what he thought.

BTW, a black James Bond wouldn’t bother me. If the guy can play the part and stay true to the character, I say go for it.

Plenty of people who are tired of PC crap. The new Moneypenny is black, isn’t that enough? Maybe we should make the new M a Muslim in a burka as well. We’ll make Bond a bisexual while we’re at it.

Can we start taking black roles and make them white?
