I really enjoyed Pierce Brosnan as Bond – I was a bit dismayed that they waited so long to give him the role. (They could have skipped Timothy Dalton and went straight to Brosnan.)
Casino Royale will mark the debut of Daniel Craig as the new Bond. If you saw Layer Cake, you will agree it was a great selection. This also marks a Bond remake. Originally, David Niven played 007 in the 1967 spoof version of the Ian Flemming novel, which came AFTER his first stint in the Pink Panther series.
Sure, I would have chosen Clive Owen as the next Bond, but I can get behind this decision.
