Keeping the British end up
With the exception of "Road to Perdition", I'm largely unfamilar with Daniel Craig's work, but I'm pleased that he is emerging as a favorite to be the next James Bond. He seems to have a dark, brooding quality that I think will give the shopworn character an added dimension. (I feel the same about another candidate, Jason Statham.)
Though I think Pierce Brosnan was a fantastic Bond, I've always been disappointed that Timothy Dalton didn't stick with the character longer. (Despite the fact that he was in one of the worst Bond films.) Dalton's Bond seemed to have a barely concealed rage, simmering below the surface, that threatened to bubble over at any moment. Plus, he was in Flash Gordon.
