Hugh Jackman to be the Next James Bond?

— Posted by John Campea

Well, let’s spur the rumours a little more shall we? The last rumour I heard sputtering on James Bond’s lawn was “Orlando Bloom”, which somewhere along the way here, I strongly disagreed with; at the risk of infuriating crushing teenaged females.

Hugh Jackman being the James Bond is a choice I’d be much more comfortable with. I’m sure there’s some things in there that I may have issue with, but I really can’t think of them at the moment. Kind of a sharp looking bloke — Younger then Pierce, but older than Orlando. I’d go with this one for sure I think. Although I’m currently still accepting resumes from other people. The photo is from an article in today’s emotionally charged dribble paper: the Toronto Sun.

    sean bean will never likely be bond because he was a bond villian. Jackman, according to at least one story, was offered the role but turned it down. the rest is still in the air.

    as for the whole “gerard butler is gay” thing. he has been quoted in interviews as saying that while he feels it’s really no one’s business and hopes fans will respect his privacy in the matter, the rumors of him and certain actors (and he stresses that word to imply he means male and not just generically) are totally and completely false as are the implications read into certain comments made about him by people he has worked with (referring to the alleged confirmation by Joel S that Gerard is gay). so you can believe his comments or believe that it’s jut another celebrity being told to lie by his agent so that he can preserve his status

    Hugh Jackman. Watch his moives as well as seeing him in public. He has all what a Bond is. It is a perfect fit. Can not go wrong for this H J.

    I think Marti Pellow would be an excellent James Bond.
