No poll?

Sean Connery was the original.

George Lazenby was only in for one, was more of a chocolate advert man.

Roger Moore played it for the laughs.

Timothy Dalton was a serious actor who always looked slightly embarrassed to be playing Bond.

Pierce Brosnan is the bond generation I grew up on in my teens, the tech era that started getting ridiculous with the invisible car. Had the odd laugh, though looked far too plump to have been starved by the Koreans.

Daniel Craig the post-Bourne/24 Bond, would have to say is my favourite. Doesn't play so much for laughs, and the technology is at least believable.

Peter Sellers was purely a spoof.

According to Wikipedia, the following are unofficial Bonds:

Barry Nelson
'I'll have a B please' Bob Holness
David Niven
Maxwell Caulfield
Adam Blackwood
Tim Bentinck
Jason Carter
Toby Stephens

when they announced DC as the new bond i thought he was going to be useless, but to my surprise he has really impressed me and i think he has taken the crown from connery

Roger Moore was the serving James Bond while I were a lad, so he gets my vote. I lost interest during the Timothy Dalton and Pears Brosnan years, just not believeable enough. Daniel Craig seems to making the job his own though!

Sean Connery was my No 1 Bond but Daniel Craig has taken it in my opinion as the stories tend to be grittier and the better for less of the pompus innuendo that went previously.

1) Roger Moore
2) Sean Connery
3) Whatever the rest.

I grew up with Roger Moore and he will always be the best Bond. He represents the Suave sophisticated Upper Class English Gentleman that I grew up with. He is good looking, charming, precise and articulate with his humour as well as being intimidating enough to his enemies.

Sean Connery is just as good in his own way but different.

The rest you can forget. Pierce Brosnan whilst he fits the image is just not a good actor and what comes out of his mouth is not convincing as the image he tries to portray.

Daniel Craig is a very fine actor but he is Butt Ugly Im sorry to say. Bond is an attractive hansome gentleman. Not a sophisticated Brute ( well maybe he is on the inside but not on the outside) Daniel Craig also feels uncomfortable in love scenes with beautiful women and thats not something the real Bond would ever understand !

Timothy Dalton / George Lazenby - well not much to say.

I think the next Bond should be Hugh Jackman, hes the closest I can think of the Bond stereotype unless people have other suggestions?

Seconded. I liked Pierce Brosnan in the role but the plots were completely ludicrous. Geezers with diamonds embedded in their face that won't come out my ****!

I think the new ones with Mr Craig are a great improvement. Darker and more edgy and with no stupid acronyms for silly organisations like SMERSH hellbent on destroying the world. I like Daniel Craig in the role and I like the style of them.

Pierce Brosnan, without a doubt. :thumbs:

All the smoothness of Moore, but with the hard edge of Connery.

I think Sean Connery's bond was before my time.

Keep thinking of his atrocious "Russian" accent in Red October :)

I think there is a BIG bit of agism in this poll.:p


When James Bond FIRST appeared on the BIG screen,IE Picture Hooses the intergared circuit was just a wee transistor,the internet was a GPO telegram boy,a caclulator (which wasn't invented till years later) was either steam tables,log tables or the really rich hud slide rules.Owning an Aston Martin was nigh impossible and the Caribbean and the Bahamas was the other end of the planet and Man hudnae walked on the moon .

How times have changed.

The sad thing is I can still remember seeing from Russia with love when it was realeased in the pictures and what James had to do to steal a telex machine....Years later we would be throwing them at each other.

Oh and in those days the rich companinies had telex numbers.No .co.etc then.
