This subject has been discussed at other blogs but I thought it wouldn’t hurt to give you a chance to voice your thoughts here. Every time I see Richard in a tuxedo, I usually find myself thinking of James Bond or some old-time movie star. He looks so dashing, handsome and suave . . . and he’s got the physicality for the role, that’s for sure. But of course, he is also a fantastically gifted actor, multi-faceted. We want to see him win awards for his performances. Can’t remember a Bond movie ever being nominated for Best Actor.
Would playing Bond be a step down for him, a move in the wrong direction?
And then there is the possiblity of playing a Bond baddie–in some cases, they’ve been the most interesting character in certain Bond films. A good villain can, in fact, steal the show (Gisborne, anyone?) So what do you think? Vote in the poll below and feel free to add your comments.
