    Mmm. I disagree so much with some of those majority votes, that I'm beginning to wonder about myself because of the ones I agree with.

    I think Jude Law is a great actor, but I don't want to see him franchised. I also think Christian Bale looks too young to be a James Bond. Ewan McGregor has red hair (which would probably look bad dyed). They should have put Colin Ferrell on that list, seeing as how he's probably one of the best young actors to take over the Bond role out there.

    And I don't agree with most, if not all, of those responses. Either people are getting stupider, or I am.

    I’m amazed that the spread in the “rank these actors” question is so large! The order is a bit messed up, too. Heh.

    I think they didn't include all of the answers people gave. Some of those percents don't add up to 100% so I wonder what the other responses were.

    I didnt know Hugh Jackman was that tall, always assumed he was rather short. Cool! He'd make a good Bond, as would Purfoy, but Hugh is Aussie, I know that, so thats cool. But is Purfoy American, if he is, no! Sorry, but Bond has to be at least from another country.

    I still think Colin Farrell would be the best Bond. 007 is supposed to be suave and charismatic, and then wreak total havoc when he gets in a tight situation. Farrell looks like he could pull it off, but he always has a 5 o'clock shadow.

    You can see Purefoy in "A Kinght's Tale" as Edward the "Black Prince of Wales". He is the charachter who 'Knights' Heath Ledger's Character "Sir William".

    IMO he has the perfect look, voice and accent to play Bond. He really would fit that role better than any other actor I can think of.
