Ditto. I liked him too. Is that rumor still circulating that the next Bond is going to be black? I wonder if/how that will affect the franchise. It'll be different if it is true based on how the character of Bond has been portrayed in the minds of the world for decades. But theoretically in the fictitious story of Bond itself, it could work since the 007 thing is just a agent number moniker (even the name James Bond could be a pseudonym). Right there. I agree that Casino Royale is possible the best Bond film in the entire series. No matter who played Bond, it doesn't matter. That one particular film had everything that you could ask for. I actually might go watch Casino Royale to wash out the bad taste that Spectre left in my mouth. I just can't believe Spectre was so bad. Every spy cliche imaginable was in there, the organization was glossed over, the motives of the organization were not explained (other than Waltz's character providing them with global info for their terrorist attacks), Waltz was wasted as an actor (they didn't even explain or dive into his character other than the fact that the guy wanted to control all surveillance across the entire globe), the acting was so bland like all bodies were just going through the motions in front of the camera lens, and the entire plot felt completely void.
