While promoting the twenty-second James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, Daniel Graig answered an interview from The Daily Telegraph and said the world is ready for a black James Bond.

Daniel Craig:
After Barack Obama's victory I think we might have reached the moment for a coloured 007. I think the role could easily be played by a black actor because the character created by Ian Fleming in the '50s has undergone a great deal of evolution and continues to be updated.
The New York Daily News published an article with a list of five actors who could be the next James Bond:

The role of James Bond is often seen as a career-booster, so it is not suprising we don't see in this list actors such as Will Smith or Denzel Washington, who are already famous.

But most of all, this list features only US actors, whereas for the public, James Bond is a British icon from the MI6, so many reason that James Bond should remain portrayed by a British actor. Still, there are great black British actors who should be considered, or why not start a new franchise with a CIA agent?

If I am not wrong, the movie xXx with Vin Diesel in 2002 was already an attempt to propose a modern alternative to James Bond.

Black James Bond!

Seriously??? A black James Bond and these are the guys you pick? I can see Taye Diggs, but he is a bit too short for my liking.

And really??? Jamie Foxx, Mekhi Phifer and Michael Gallant. Are you mad!!

Pressure........... lets try........and this is just off the top of my head....

Shemar Moore
Boris Kodjoe
Morris Chesnut
Idris Elba
If he was still in shape Gary Dourdan

even Blair Underwood would make my list!

a little bit of cheating (size might be a factor) and we can add Dwayne Johnson

Come on people ........... think! or ask me! tee he hee

A black James Bond, yes! You should look at Michasha Armstrong for the role. He is British and has worked in meany feature films and tv shows in North America.

He gets my vote!!
