Any actor that despises guns and martinis should NOT assume the role of James Bond. I love James Bond movies (well, I did until they put out that last one, which SUCKED), but I don't know if I'm going to see this one now that I know that.
I haven't seen a James Bond movie in years. Sean Connery was James Bond, George Lazenby sucked, Roger Moore started off OK, then sucked with age, Timothy Dalton sucked and I have yet to see one with Pierce Brosnan. It just isn't the same.
By the way, Jill StJohn is the hottest Bond girl ever (the redhead in Diamonds are Forever).
As far as this new guy's dislike of hand guns, I say "who cares". I probably won't watch his movie anyway. Since these new Bonds came along, I don't enjoy the movies.
Can't say I ever sat thru a Bond movie, Connery was the best though and ranked right up there as a talented actor til I found out how anti-gun/anti-hunt he was.
I probably missed a good show in "Hunt for Red October", but after a few minutes of Baldwin and Connery, knowing their positions on gun rights, I passed on watching it. Them and alot of other actors may perform their craft well, but are hypocrites to the nth degree.
I'm getting tired of the new Bond movies portraying women as female Bonds. I'm all for equality and respect for women but that's not what the Bond movies are about. Halle Berry ruined the last movie for me because it came off as corny.
As far as the new guy, who cares what he thinks? He isn't Sean Connery and he won't dethrone him as the best.
