Comments: Noooooo...!

I have to go with you on this one, Key. Not that I am normally attenuated to the sexual qualities of actors, but I was weaned on Connery, and Bond is a damned brunet. That whole Roger Moore scene harshed the '70's all by its lonesome. Brosnan was great. Dalton not bad. What's with this guy? Why didn't they just give it to Sean Bean? The Bond chicks better be extremely hot to draw velocidollars out of THIS wallet.

Though...I must admit, had it gone to Hugh Jackman, I wouldn't have bitched.

He's the only exception. No one else will do. They want us to pay up, they need to go first!

Two words: Clive. Owen.

Brosnan just plain made it work. Just like Connery did. They were Bond. Dalton was fine, but the other 2 just had it knocked.

I bet the change hurts the franchise in the long run. Part of the whole Connery thing ws that he'd done the role so often that we knew him in the role. Brosnan was getting there. Now, it's just back to being another sequel.

Key, you have seen this

Clive Owen - perfect and certainly the only 2nd to Pierce Brosnan...have you guys seen Clive in his early days on the BMW films? Suh-weet...forgive my lack of link formatting.

I don't know if it was just about the money. I read that he was contracted to do the next one, but then supposedly out of the blue, they cancelled his contract at the last minute. I think there may have been more going on behind the scenes than we know. In an interview he said that he was shocked, and it was totally unexpected when they called him up and essentially fired him.
