So, the next James Bond should be black? Let’s have a little chat about fictional characters with Daniel Craig.

TITS!

We’ve been up all night arguing the toss with our boyfriend Daniel Craig (here’s one we made out with earlier – and no, we don’t think we’ve seen enough of this picture yet). Apparently, he said at the opening of Quantum of Solace – in a kind of celebration of the B.O. victory in Americaland – that he thought the next James Bond should be black. Now, Danny…

While that would be OK for Doctor Who, because Timelords can do what the freak they like, James Bond, the character written by Ian Fleming (no relation to Jason) was not black. Nor was Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice. Nor was Queen Victoria. Nor was Paddington Bear. And neither, incidentally, should Othello be white.

Now while we would like Angela Bassett to get a whole lot more work than she does, and while we can’t get enough of our Denzels and our Wesleys (though Wesley wasn’t very nice when we met him), we do think it’s getting silly if character traits as created by writers are going to be ignored. Why not a female James Bond, by your argument? Or a gay one? Or an old one? Or a cat one?

Or, how about someone writes a character who is a black secret service agent…? That might be a start.

  6. You stupid racist bitch. Why shouldn’t there be a black Bond? Or a gay one? Are you that prejudice. Christ. No wonder Boyz dropped you.

  7. Oh you absolute knob, ‘Reader of this you stupid cow’… IT’S A CHARACTER THAT’S ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN, YOU DICKHEAD!! And he wrote him as white, it’s as simple as that.
    It’s the same reason you can’t have a female Jesus. Or, as they quite rightly said, a black Elizabeth Bennet. Or as Betty Windsor up there says, a white Othello.
    Jesus, you uptight wanker, I really think you need to grow up a little. And start reading things thoroughly before you go off on one.

  9. It’s called a fictional character, ‘RofthisyouSC’. If Bond was written as a black, gay, jewish bloke from Harlem, then he should be portrayed as such. As it stands, he was written as a white, mid-upper class, Englishman, and should be played as such. That’s the point, you idiot. It’s typical of people like you to throw the ‘racist’ card when there’s fuck all racist about this. Maybe you should take your prejudices elsewhere, and let us get on with having some honest fun.

  10. I would like the final word on this.
    This story is not in the slightest way racist. No Jiminee.
    But Reader of this Stupid Cow could probably do with a huge black cock up him. I’m assuming him. Wouldn’t want to go calling him, her. That might be misconstrued as homophobic. Or maybe misogynistic. Or blasphemous. Or all three.

  15. Ha ha hahahaha, I had a feeling a less intelligent type would think this post was racist. Silly fool.
    At least it’s got people talking. Talking’s good, right? Are we allowed to talk?

  18. Little word of advice, ‘Reader of this…’ – read the full story before you go throwing offensive accusations around.
    Naughty naughty.

  20. does Ian Fleming ever refer to the James Bond character as Caucasian though? I’ve never read any of the books.. so.. someone let me know?

  21. Oh you know what, Truth, you may be on to something there. Ian Fleming also didn’t actually say whether Bond was a human being or not. So maybe he really is a cat?

  22. Can I just give my tuppence worth…
    Why’s everyone in such reverence of America over this? We had a female PM over twenty years ago. And a Jewish one over 100 years ago. Beat that, bitches.

  23. If you’ll remember there was a whole furore about Craig getting the part. Many cried that James Bond couldn’t be blond! but i love
    Craig as Bond (naturally, as we all do here). Now a gay Bond, or a female Bond or a cat Bond would just mess up the character. I do agree with your point, but Bond COULD be black as long as he still was middle class, cool, suave, and a womaniser. The part was written white, but Bond does change a bit with every representation, Craig especially so (having reinvented the franchise after Brosnan and Jason Bourne almost killing it off!) I don’t know. I’m split kind of 50/50 between yours and MR. Craig’s opinions…
