    camouflage "marginalia".

    Yup, that's how we all speak. Due to the Jamaican accent being genetic.

    This thread reminds me when they pretended Johnson from the Peep Show as Doctor Who was a possibility... instead that white kid with an elastic face turned up. Nothing against the man but the disappointment.... the disappointment! (matched only by Scotlands failure to escape some time later).

    Oyelowo has already done a highly recommended counter-intuitive spy drama, Complicit. He plays a man who would like to be Bond or Bauer but finds out the hard way the stuffy shirts upstairs have rules for a reason

    Bollocks to Bond or Bauer, Bourne is best anyway.;)

    Matt Smith. I was hoping Patterson would get the role cos I'd seen him in Neverwhere and he looked just space-wizardy enough to pull it off. Sick coat as well.

    Doctor Who back 19th September. Just seen the trailer. Part of me thinks don't bother, the last series was crap. Especially if they are dragging Missy back into it.
    But I'll probably still watch it and nurse the disappointment.

    Missy was inspired & the two eps by Jamie Mathieson were excellent.

    I'm not hating on Missy. I'm hating on Missy being brought back. It was done, dusted. Now have a new idea please.

    Do you know how many times the character has appeared over the last 40 years? Unlike the Daleks s/he never gets boring.

    um. i was recently informed by *someone* involved in the secret research behind the new bond that a black Bond really didnt rate amongst European audiences- especially Germany, Italy and some of the Ex EBlokker countries.I am sure you marketers or whatver will use the proper terminology for this process

    Probably same rational behind the Chinese shrinking the black guy from the Star Wars poster. Marketing along racial appeal lines or something.

    I read something or other the other day about the next Bond being Jane, rather than James.
     
  21. Reno

    Reno The In Kraut

    That's mere speculation and media silliness. Never going to happen.

    Let's wait and see. Never could get into the books, even when I still read King.

    How about a gay Bond?

    There was a suggestion of the current Bond being at least bi in Skyfall. I think that's as far as they will go.

    You're right; I forgot about the stuff with Javier Bardem.

    How about a black Muslim lesbian in a wheelchair? That should cover the bases.
