Which actors (who have never done it yet) do you think would be the absolute WORST choices to portray James Bond?

This is a twist on the oft-debated “who is your favorite actor so far who has portrayed James Bond” or “who was the worst actor in the role of James Bond” questions.

Any actor past or present, living or dead.

    Jack Nicholson.
    Dwayne Johnson.

    One is far too evil, the other too conspicuous - flamboyance is NOT a desired trait in a spy.

    Then he certainly isn't in the running. :)

    I don't understand your reply. Did they "kill off" the fictional character of 'Pee Wee Herman'? I  ask because, as far as I know, Paul Reubens is still alive.


    EDIT: I hope he didn't die. Hearing about John Paragon's recent death was sad enough for me. I always liked his genie on Pee Wee's Playhouse.  :)

    No "bad" on my end, for sure - - I'm very glad to hear you were mistaken!  :)  :)

    These two are the worst actors for any role.

    Adam Sandler.
    Will Farrell.

      Imagine a movie in which Will Ferrell portrays Adam Sandler, or a movie in which Adam Sandler portrays Will Ferrell! Which of the two portrayals would be worse?  Lol!

    Now I take back another comment I made elsewhere. Your 'take' on Devito makes me want to watch him as Bond, too.  :)

    I love his .movies, but casting Mel Brooks, who is 95, would not be good.

    Woody Allen in a James Bond movie is intriguing enough for me to actually watch a James Bond movie. I've seen one bond movie (can't even remember the title) and I have no desire to see another one. Unless Allen portrayed Bond.  :)

    I do like a lot of the theme songs from various Bond movies, though.

    Woody Allen IS in a "Bond" movie - the original Casino Royale (which also starred David Niven and Peter Sellers). A spoof. This post was edited by Slartibartfast at July 22, 2021 5:20 AM MDT

    I didn't know that. :)
    I've heard of the movie but knew no details.
