Isn't the James Bond character just the name of the 007 agent?

It would be all about how it's approached. It would certainly add a fresh spin on that formula.

 

In my mind if James Bond is a public school educated man the only Black actor on those believable levels is Chiwetel.

 

The main problem is financing, if some of your money is coming from lets say far east investors they don't really want to see a black lead.

James Bond is agent 007's designation, so it could absolutely be a black guy why not.

 

The guy wasn't born James Bond, that's the public name he uses when addresses people, his Mi6 codename is 007. If people don't get that then they don't get the the premise of a secret agent and shouldn't contribute an opinion.

comedy there is a few but i guess that still fits the common black archetype.

Sure this has been done before on here. I remain the same, don't think Bond should be anything other than white, as a million others have said - BA Baracus etc shouldn't be anything other than Black.

The man who created Bond, Ian Flemming once hired an artist to do a sketch of how he envisioned bond himself.

its a formula that doesn't need changing, the series hasn't gotten stale yet

 

 

why not try come up with a competing series like Mission Impossible did instead?

black people want an identity in mainstream film culture by riding the waves of white creativity, so dumb.

the same way white people want an identity in mainstream music by riding the waves of black creativity?

if its through some sort of affirmative action id rather they would put the focus on up and coming black directors and writers.

 

but am not really to keen on the concept of affirmative action.

I honestly think it just doesn't even matter

Black white don't think it'd make a blind bit of difference to the franchise

Chinese or Indian on the other hand we might have an issue

I'm not saying he should be, I'm just saying "why not?" They could get away with it.
