    How about Beyonce Knowles surrounded by half clad cross dressers carrying golden Illuminati symbols?

    Madonna could play the role of "M" and hang her own Illuminati symbols on the office walls.

    I wouldn't know anything about Beyoncé or her dancers. I never seen her show as gyrating half clad females do not do anything for me. And I was not a Madonna fan.

    I'm sorry everyone. My sensitivity and snarkiness got the better of me in this thread.

    I would appreciate the moderators to remove all of my posts in this thread as they do not contribute to the OP.

    If James Bond is a fictional character that shape shifts - re-incarnates as a different person every so often - alien from some other planet - fine anyone can play that part. Man, Woman, Child

    I have to agree with you! I just can't envision a black man playing the part of Bond, anymore than I can see a white man playing the part of the old Shaft character.

    As far as going to see a Bond film with a black actor .... I would have to pass! I think if they do this, the man will stick around and be less popular than Timothy Dalton in the role of Bond!

    You're correct about his perents, ITL, and the writers would have to really rewrite the heck out of the script to make this even remotely seem possible!

    Note to Hollywood .... leave Bond white!

    That should be the next step in Bond. If he were black with gender identity issues, think of the untapped audience waiting for a newer better Bond? "Jane Bond!"

    One of Rush's biggest issues is being able to properly articulate genuinely importsnt sentiments. Usually this is because he's a blowhard and bloviating buffoon. This issue is a good example.

    Our whole society has shifted towards a position that the authorial intent is subordinate to cultural whims. Jackson's mishandling of the Hobbit is a key example but also what had happened with comic book characters. This is the larger issue.

    Now, if Ian Flemming's people allow an African American Bond that's fine. I probably won't see it. I believe in Flemming's vision for Bond and that it shouldn't be subservient to the whims of cultural critique. Just my 2¢.

    Rush can't state things elaquantly because he isn't an elaquant person.

    You are right. Rush is one of those guys that you might meet at a tailgate party. I could see him enjoying ribs smothered in rib sauce, giving out his opinion to anyone who listens!

    Still, he has made it from the loudmouth next dor, to a nationally known and oft respected media personality! and I'll be honest, I like listening to him! I guess that makes me a tailgater? :laugh:

    I don't see a problem with Idris playing the role.

    Elizabeth Taylor played Cleopatra and she looks nothing near Egyptian.

    Warren Oland ( a white man) played Charlie Chan in several films.

    Laurence Olivier ( a white man) played Othello.

    [​IMG]

    Alicia Nash ( Hispanic) was played by a white female in A Beautiful Mind.

    In the film "Pay It Forward", Kevin Spacey’s character, teacher Eugene Simonet, was originally supposed to be a black man named Reuben St. Clair.

    Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games


    So more power to Idris if they cast him. I think he'd make a wonderful Bond and would still go see the movie.:thumbs:

    That's right, and Rock Hudson played a man, married to a woman.

    Then there's Piper Perabo, of Covert Affairs, she played a female CIA agent in love with a man!
