Do you ever think they would attempt to change the ethnicity  of 007?

Do you think it would be a box office hit or become popular?

If so who do you think would make be a good ethnic change to become 007?

    I think it would be interesting if they changed the ethnicity of 007 and it’ll probably maintain its popularity although I always saw the 007 movies as an average action movie.
    It would probably be a very long time before they do decide to change 007’s ethnicity. It took them over 40 years before they broke the continuity and gave the daniel craig 007 a different time line (like how the amazing spider-man is the original timeline and ultimate spider-man is told in a parallel universe).
    I think common would be an awesome 007 although I cant think of an asian actor to play 007. Maybe jet li, but I personally cant see him seducing women

    I think 007 requires to carry himself in a certain way, and obviously be sexy and hansome, but the ethnicity change is interesting. It doesn’t really matter, but it is interesting that it did happen.

  3. Well, I wouldn’t be adverse to a fine black man playing 007. He would definitely have to have a British accent though! After all, James Bond is from England and it turns up the sexy notch a couple degrees 🙂 On the other hand, since Bond has been a sort of legacy it might be difficult to get the public to accept a whole new face for him. Might as well come up with a new spy movie or series featuring Will Smith or TI…

    let’s make shaft a white man instead, see how well that goes. changing 007’s ethnicity is like hiring samuel l. jackson to play nick fury. oh wait, shit.

  5. Thats a good point with making shaft, white but just how you can make a black guy look suave and james bond like so can you make a white guy look gangster and hood at the same time.

    Here’s one man who feels like its time for a new James Bond. Diddy has stated a couple years ago that he would want to play the first black james bond and now he has released his audition tape which also happens to be a promo for his new cologne.

    “We got a black president, it’s time for a black bond.”

  7. This relates to, why make a white guy the main star in a martial arts film, etc
    But yea, I agree, changing the ethnicity of 007, when the line up for the past 50 years, has been white.
    I do want to see a change in the color of who is playing the lead role, but as long as they continue that bond feeling in the movies, I wouldn’t mind it so much.
