Michael Fassbinder steps out of James Bond’s shoes
The global search for a new Bond is buzzing in social media and Hollywood and actor Michael Fassbinder seems less interested about a possible casting opportunity. In a recent conversation, “The Hunger” actor revealed he has no intensions of playing the titular role and the franchise needs a refresher. When asked if he would be interested in starring as 007, he said: “To be honest, no. As an acting role, I think Daniel has done such a cracking job in this age group. I think the franchise needs something new.” He also praised the Bond in action, Daniel Craig for his fabulous job as world’s most dangerous spy.“What about we start the film back in Sandhurst, Army training rather than on a yacht, or he’s in the Middle East on an op and gets thrown in the brig for insubordination? He’s going to get court-martialled. I have thought about it a lot. I just love Bond. Doesn’t everyone? I grew up with him,” Fassbinder said.
“It’s always a fun conversation to have. But Bond should be someone in their early 20s… I always thought Bond should be British, but let’s get an American in or maybe someone like Jack O’Connell would be good? Or even better, how about Jane Bond? A woman. One thing is for sure, it won’t be anyone on the bookies’ lists. It never is,” he added.Daniel Craig started his James Bond endeavor by taking over the cap from Pierce Brosnan in 2005 007 flick Casino Royale. He appeared three more times, Quantum of Solace (2007), Skyfall (2012), and Spectre (2015). But, after the release of Spectre, there were widespread rumors that the makers of the franchise, Eon Productions, had planned to find a new Bond for their next project.
