    Okay, I'm going all the way here: Crispin Glover!

    1. Henry Cavill

    2. Idris Elba

    3. Luke Evans

    4. Michael Fassbender

    5. Tom Hardy

    6. Damien Lewis

    My personal favorite is Henry Cavill, especially after having seen him in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.; but I understand he's not the odds-on favorite to win the role at the moment (I think Damien Lewis is, at this point).

    Idris Elbe is one of the odds-on favorite to win the role as of right now; it would be interesting to have a Bond who is, to put it delicately, a "man of color". Most of you (at least I do) know him as Heimdall from the last two Thor movies with Chris Hemsworth.

    Another long-shot who could probably do the role justice is Luke Evans; he managed to carry last year's "Dracula Untold" almost by himself, and is slated to (possibly) play that role again in a sequel.

    Michael Fassbender is another top-of-the-list possibility; he certainly has the acting chops and the range to carry the role.

    Tom Hardy is another versatile actor that could definitely play the role, but rumor has it he's not interested in the job.

    Damien Lewis has suddenly shot to the top of the "most likely candidate" list; I haven't seen him in much besides his (much earlier) Alex Rider: Stormbreaker, but he strikes me as a very competent and versatile actor.

    Who else might be able to carry this off?
    1. Henry Cavill is too handsome for this role.

    2. This is Ian Fleming's image of James Bond. Doesn't seem to be black. My opinion is to stick to the original narrative.

    3. Luke Evans is my # 1 from your list.

    4. Michael Fassbender is a good choice too.

    5. Tom Hardy is too big. Not fat, big.

    6. Damien Lewis. Give the guy a shot at the auditions.

    Stitch, apart from auditions, there is a custom made Bond dress that the last 2 guys would need to fit in. Whoever fits the best gets the role.

    Obama would have to wait. Man Mohan Singh is waiting since 2014. Color and all. :-)

    They should have an Archer episode where Archer gets cast to play James Bond.

    Jason Isaacs is an EXCELLENT actor! I remember him more from "Black Hawk Down" and "The Patriot" than anything else.

    Another candidate I hadn't thought of until now, but is also an outstanding actor:
