Still can't see the appeal of Clive Owen as Bond, though.

He's good at coldfish parts. Check out Croupier if you want to see him Becoming Bond - rape, beatings, card sharping... Owen would have been a very different kind of Bond and much, much better than Craig.

Oh good lord yes. Absolutely 1000000000% in any scenario yes.

While he wouldn't be my no. 1 choice, his roles for Mike Hodges in Croupier and I'll Sleep When I'm Dead are pure Bond auditions. I remember seeing the trailer for Croupier as a kid and the poster in the local theater, seeing Owen at the tables in a tuxedo looking ultra cool and saying out loud: "is that the next Bond?"

His part in The Bourne Identity certainly suggests he'd have had the coldly detached assassin side of Bond down pat.

Every time I revisit that modern quasi-classic I always want far more screen time with that character. His exit is so well done it gets echoed in the far inferior sequels.
