Brolin, James Brolin was almost Bond, James Bond
July 5th, 2019 under James Bond, Josh Brolin. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the early ’80s, Roger Moore said he was done playing 007. Therefore, the producers started to look for a replacement. They auditioned several leading men and one of them was James Brolin.

I guess you can say he stirred them the right way because they offered him the role. In fact, they told him to go home to the States and pack for a year of filming in London. He told This Morning today, as he was doing so, Moore decided to reprise his role as Bond, James Bond in Octopussy.

Which means he never got to play the International Spy. As we know the Marcus Welby star is an American, so what type of accent was he going to use? He says that he was going to use an intercontinental one and not a British accent. I guess they did not want another Dick Van Dyke on their hands.

How did he feel when he heard that Moore was going back for more? The actor said, “I am a fatalist in a way. I just went OK.” Then he added, “But I look back and I think it would have been a great thing.” It would have been the role of a lifetime.

Hearing that he was almost cast, proves that Bond does not have to be a white Brit. Anyone can play the legendary role, as long as they play it well.

Brolin also talked about his son Josh and his children with Barbra Streisand. The proud pop revealed that his son was bullied in school because of his dad’s career. Therefore, he did not want to go into show business. Then, one summer he came to LA to spend some time with his pops and said he wanted to be an actor. Within no time he landed a job in a little movie called Goonies. The rest is Hollywood history.

Wait he has kids with Babs? Yes, he does. Four to be exact and they all walk on four legs. As you know they cloned her dog. What the couple was not expecting is that they when the furbaby was born, there would be multiple ones. They decided to keep three and give away the fourth. He also thinks cloning will become more popular in the future. I do not know how I feel about that.

What I do know is that Brolin, James Brolin would have been a good Bond. To see his screen test, then click here!


Grace Jones gives Bond 25 a view to her bum as she walked away
July 1st, 2019 under James Bond. [ Comments: none ]

I think we can all agree that Bond 25 is cursed, very cursed. First, the movie was delayed when Danny Boyle dropped out as director over creative differences. Then production had to work around not having Craig, Daniel Craig on set because he injured his ankle. While he was healing, there were a few unexpected explosions on the set. There were also rumors they crew was upset when the new director, Cary Fukunaga, was too busy playing with his Playstation to come to set.

Now, comes one of its biggest setbacks. The most notorious Bond Girl, Grace Jones, was expected to be part of the movie. They even gave her great accommodations near where they are filming. There was just one thing they did not give her enough of and that was lines.

According to The Sun, when she saw how little her cameo was in the 25th Bond, James Bond film, “She was out of there quicker than it takes to rustle up a martini.” I guess you can say she was stirred and they were shaken. Can you blame her? She is Grace Jones. She is the Queen and they are her subjects.

What else can wrong with this movie? This is one of those times when you don’t ask that question. If you do, then something you cannot even imagine happening will happen.

Although, it sounds like the film will be dreadful. With all that has happened, there are only two ways it can go. It can go very very well or it can go very very very bad. I am rooting for the latter. Which means I might go see it when it comes out on April 3rd. If it comes out…


Daniel Craig is getting surgery, ankle surgery
May 22nd, 2019 under James Bond. [ Comments: none ]

A few weeks ago, there were rumors that Daniel Craig injured his ankle while filming James Bond 25. Today, they finally confirmed it. Production released this statement, “Daniel Craig will be undergoing minor ankle surgery resulting from an injury sustained during filming in Jamaica. Production will continue whilst Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks post-surgery. The film remains on track for the same release date in April 2020.”

Does anyone know where Idris Elba was when Craig hurt his ankle? I mean, how much longer does he bloody have to wait to play the iconic role?


The present and future Bond, James Bond?
January 7th, 2019 under Idris Elba, James Bond. [ Comments: none ]

The Golden Globes invites some of the biggest stars, so it makes sense that they would invite both Daniel Craig and Idris Elba. Just like Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie or Taylor Swift and Kanye West, you will want to keep them apart.

Why? Well, Daniel Craig is the current James Bond, and Idris Elba is his rumor and anticipated replacement. Only thing is Craig has not hung up the tux yet. Therefore, imagine how awkward it must have been when the two of them met. I mean, Idris has pretty much been gunning for that job and Craig still has it.

Maybe, all was good between them and they shared a Martini, shaken not stirred, together; and Craig gave Elba advice on how to play one of the most iconic roles in Hollywood history. That is when he is done with being 007 of course.


Elba, Idris Elba answers if he is the next Bond, James Bond
August 22nd, 2018 under Idris Elba, James Bond. [ Comments: none ]

For months, there have been rumors and campaigns trying to make Idris Elba the next Bond, James Bond. Yesterday, while he was walking the carpet for his directorial for the movie Yardie, Good Morning Britain asked him about it.

First, they handed him a martini and asked him if he likes it shaken or stirred. He told them, “stirred fry.” Then she asked him, “Am I looking at the next 007?” As he walking away, he told her, “no,” and laughed.

This is the second bit of bad news for the franchise in 24 hours. Yesterday, Danny Boyle dropped out of directing Bond 25 and now this. Maybe it is time for them to hit the pause button and reevaluate how they move forward with other Bond movies. What do you think?
