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.

Wesley Snipes is on the loose again.
Mochell could be jaws she big and fugly enough
Colin Salmon would be great as a Bond.
Whay not a tranny Bond? yea, that’s it...a Bond who’s had an addagashtome.....
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.
How about a gay black transsexual who is fond of sheep James Bond.
“How about a gay black transsexual who is fond of sheep James Bond”
Ru Paul is James Bond.
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.
Who is Colin Salmon?
Damn. You beat me to it.
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
I guess the era of realism in movies is over.
How about a James Bond who is a double agent for the KGB? I’ll bet the younger generation in the UK could relate to that!
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.
Dear God, what has this world come to?
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!
I can't see your eyes, so I don't know how to take that.
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....
Sean Connery was bond...that’s it.
James Bond-Laden. Tha Saudi Bond.
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.
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.
Bond. Bail Bond.
He is too busy in his continual run for president and his home school curriculum with a bunch of truthers.
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.
and I am going to play MLK, Jr in a new film too
Bond with a walker and oxygen tank
That would have been from the beginning.
You might not know how common smoking was among elite soldiers and marines in the past, it might still be.
OK. I do see your point. Well taken. :)
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.
I knew a black Scotsman back in the 1980s. A lot of people in the Caribbean have Scots in their family tree.
Wasn’t Idi Amin the “Last King of Scotland”?
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?
The first white Shaft will also have his brother Darrell and his other brother Darrell.
