James Blonde?

Casting the new James Bond is difficult because people have high standards for what the new James Bond should look and sound like. Here is what I think should be the requirement for an actor to fill James Bond's shoes. He should be 1) handsome 2) close to age 40 3) have a British or Australian accent 4) have dark hair 5) look simular to the previous actors who played James Bond.

If an actor was chosen with those things in mind, then people would be focused on how the new actor to play James Bond will compare to Pierce Bronson (who probably looks more like the ideal James Bond than any of the previous actors to play Bond). The producers of the next James Bond film, Casino Royale, have chosen 37 year-old actor Daniel Craig. This actor stands out as the new James Bond because.... he is blonde!

I do not want to prejudge the actiing ability of Daniel Craig or how the new film will be with him in it, but I must say this: JAMES BOND SHOULD NOT BE BLONDE! There I have said it. I have a right to say this because I have seen all 20 Bond films. I own them on DVD. I am a fan of the franchise and hope that the new film is excellent. But I am currently distracted.

The producers of the new James Bond film have chosen to take a chance by hiring a blonde actor. Will audiences accept him as the new James Bond? I do not know. I feel that this decision was risky and may backfire. Why take any chances? The one good thing is that the actor can dye his hair, though I doubt that he will be asked to do so.

Pamela Anderson was offered a role on Desperate Housewives as a charactor who was a brunette. She turned down the role because she felt that she would not be accepted as a brunette. Too bad that Mrs. Anderson was not a producer for Casino Royale, because she would have had the common sense to hire an actor who actually looks like the classic James Bond.

Too bad. Actors Clive Owen and Hugh Jackman would have been excellent in the role if either of them was hired. They would have also had name recognition and a fan base ready to buy tickets to see a popular actor in the role. Most people who are asked probably cannot name one film that Daniel Craig has been in. But that's not important. What is important is whether the audience will accept Mr. Craig in the role or not. If Casino Royale is a failure at the box office, then he may be replaced.

Let's see how good Casino Royale will be with Daniel Craig. I hope that I love it, but I am already concerned that Mr. Craig may not fit in the role well. I hope that he proves me wrong.
