Hard to discuss No time to die, Eon Productions’ 25th James Bond film, without a lot of spoilers. Some things happen that will fundamentally change the way you look at roles and franchise. No, he won’t move to Seattle to start a grocery co-op, but he is very close.
What we can be sure of is that Daniel Craig finally officially gave up the role of 007. As these films have always promised, “James Bond will return”-but as who? Will it be another white man? Can Eon take another big risk and vote for a person of color or a woman? Or will they maintain the status quo and find someone a bit like Daniel Craig?
In this week’s Galactic brain, Co-hosted by special guests Jon Gabrus Comedian and Bond fan Paul F. Tompkins joined me to discuss our love for this British super spy and speculate that the next person will be on the Aston Martin DB5.
As always, this conversation has been edited and it doesn’t sound so strange anymore.
Dave: Who is the next James Bond, is Kumer Nanjiani?
Paul: I would say this. They will never let someone without a native British accent play James Bond. They will never let someone who was not born in England play James Bond.
Jon: I support that rule. I don’t care about race, religion, skin color, gender, any of these. But I think you must have a British accent. This is the only rule. I am with you.
Paul: But you see, I think this is a bit unfair. We have a British superman. That’s fucked up.
Dave: It’s always the opposite, isn’t it?
Paul: Yes, exactly.
Dave: I understand and agree with you, James Bond should be British, but George Lazenby is from Australia. He is Australian and we know that the accent sounds like death, it should not be James Bond. I have no opinion on Australians. I have a problem with their accent, it may be James Bond. It just doesn’t work for me.
Paul: Didn’t he say a British accent or a British accent?
Dave: He tried it. He must have tried a British accent for James Bond.
Paul: My wife and I said afterwards that this cannot be Idris Elba. He is too old. Just like the way they make these movies. Now you have to find the oldest 40-year-old person.
John: I think Hollywood is 40 years old, just like 28 years old in culture.
Dave: Daniel Craig is dragged back ghost arrive He’s talking “I would rather cut my wrist than make another movie like this.”
Jon: Well, he said bluntly, “Now stunts are difficult.” This is the most relevant shit in the world!He was like, “Man, I just did Knife out. I sit in his sweater and play with the best actors of my generation. ”
Dave: If you look at the behind-the-scenes photos made by Roger Moore Moon catcher, He would sit there smoking a cigar and eating a turkey sandwich. He doesn’t need to do anything.
Paul: I think he is the background of some stunt scenes.
Jon: “Well, that’s where we have money.” Then who do we want? If we followed our own British accent rules, who would we be regarded as James Bond?I mean, seeing Michaela Coel from I might ruin you.
Jon: I tried to come up with someone who would dress them up and be a badass in surprise, and be British, and have some juice that people would like to see in the movie. So this is where my brain landed.
Paul: The problem now is that it must be a known number of people, just like the days when “we search for talent across the country”. ended. Someone must make you say, “Oh, I like that person.”
Jon: I didn’t think of this until you said it. The age must be right, because they signed a movie for 12 years, maybe.
Dave: As with all media, you must stay in shape and you must not be seen wearing sports pants. Dev Patel has received a lot of attention. Dev is so handsome. Everyone loves him. Everyone thinks he is sexy and cool.I don’t know if you guys see it Green knight, But it was a movie, he just lived in that solemnity and sexual attraction, holding a sword, and doing all the cool things. I think he will be more meaningful than black James Bond. Own South Asian James Bond? Because of the history of British colonialism. So I think Dev Patel will be great, able to do all the things you need, it will really send a signal to the British people.
Jon: The media surrounding Dev Patel also began to be restrained or trained in unarmed combat. You know, there will be a lot of Instagram craving for him and hating him—and it does come from you.
