Looking at some pics of him, he does bear a resemblance to Timothy Dalton.Yes he has the dark and potentially cruel features of a traditional Bond - but it looks like his schedule is fairly full atm!
And how about a bloke to play M for a change...?

Mark Gatiss and Matthew Sweet ponder the Bonds we've seen on screen since Dr No in 1962.
In impeccable evening dress, Mark Gatiss and Matthew Sweet ponder the Bonds we've seen on screen since Dr No in 1962. With the release of the 24th official James Bond film, Spectre, we ask - which 007 is the best? To date, six actors have portrayed British Secret Service agent James Bond. Was Sean Connery impossible to surpass? Was George Lazenby really that bad? Was Live and Let Die really a blaxploitation movie in disguise? Gatiss and Sweet consider these and many other questions, and raise a martini in honour of their premium Bond.
Looking for Mr Bond: 007 at the BBC
After more than 60 years tracking James Bond in print and on screen, the BBC opens up its vaults to reveal the forgotten files on the world's most famous secret agent. Featuring rare and candid interviews with all six actors to play 007, and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, this is James Bond unguarded, unrestricted and unseen.
I'm with you there, Swifty. I've been looking forward to this and now, seeing the whole trailer again, it seems kind of flat. Just more cars, helicopters, Daniel Craig pouting and a zip being undone.I might be in a minority on this one but that was one boring trailer .. to steal someone else's quote on this footage, he looked like James Bond the Angry Accountant .. and I was brought up on Bond films .. I'll wait and see.
Nope, next Saturday!Are we noticing the British spy tv programme trailers currently running on UK tv, wherein (allegedly) real MI5/MI6 agents demythologise the whole James Bond fiction genre? I've only seen a few seconds' worth of content, but I'm smitten (when's it on, or have I missed it?)
