In response to Tysyacha's threads about Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and Pierce Brosnan as James Bond, I decided to ask people who they preferred in the role. Official actors only, though. I personally preferred Timothy Dalton and Daniel Craig, as they seemed the most serious during their respective tenures.

Roger Moore is my favorite. I like how he adds in subtle humor to his lines and just his overall portrayal of the role is my favorite.

 

I'd say Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan are tied for my second spot. I like them both very well.

 

I didn't like Timothy Dalton that well, and George Lazenby was no good at all.

 

I have to see at least one more of Craig before I judge him in with my top 3 others. I liked him very well in his debut.

Timothy Dalton. I prefer his films as he did play Bond without making it look like some cheesy, slightly comedic role. Brosnan ruined it with the last film although he was pretty good at times. Craig -meh- he was good but when you watch a classic Bond movie after watching Casino Royale, you miss the quips and sly humour of any of the old Bonds. So like Moeller said, i'll have to wait a little before i judge him.

This is how I would rank them

 

Timothy Dalton Closest to the books

Sean Connery

George Lazenby

Pierce Brosnan

Roger Moore

 

 

 

Daniel Craig not sure on him since I haven't seen the movie but definitely above Roger Moore

Wait. You have never even seen Daniel Craigs movie and you say he's better than Moore? How can you rank him at all?

My favourite James Bond would have to be Sean Connery. The first Bond (to my knowledge), and the best. I just like the way he portrays Bond. He just seems perfect for the role.

 

Next would be Roger Moore. I also enjoyed his films. He was pretty good. But, not good enough to best Connery, in my opinion.

 

I'd toss it up between Craig and Brosnan. I really enjoyed Casino Royale (I've seen it four times and counting). I think he did some well in his debut Bond film. Shows him from a different perspective. Brosnan was phenomenal in Goldeneye, but his other movies were okay and I didn't like TND.

 

Dalton was decent, IMHO. And Lazenby was horrible. Plus he was Australian.

Easy I hate Moore's Bond with a passion. It's too over the top and extremely cheesy. Don't get me wrong, I do think that Roger More is an excellent actor. I loved him in Ivanhoe, The Saint, The Persuaders!, The Wild Geese, North Sea Hijack, and The Sea Wolves.

Difficult. It just so happens I don't really like Sean Connery as Bond. Don't know why.

 

Roger Moore is better imo, but I like his movies, not particularly his performance.

 

I guess it is either Pierce Prosnan or Daniel Craig. The new bond with Daniel Craig is IMO a way better movie than all of Prosnan's though.

in order from best to last:

 

Daniel Craig

Sean Connery

Pierce Brosnan

Timothy Dalton

Roger Moore

George Lazenby

 

i kind of hate putting Moore that low because he really was a decent Bond, its just that other guys were better at the part. Lazenby just plain out sucked. Craig was somebody that i really liked, and he sticks pretty close to the original Bond that was in the novels.

I voted for Sean Connery. He is one of my favorite all time actors.

 

Second it would be close between Pierce Brosnan and Timothy Dalton. I always saw Pierce Brosnan as James Bond even back in his Remington Steele days. I liked Timothy Dalton’s adaptation of James Bond best. He made the man behind the gun more realist (although that might have been the directors and producers work).

 

I now find Roger Moore’s Bond very cheesy, but I loved them as a child. Didn’t care for George Lazenby and haven’t seen Daniel Craig’s version.
