The Best James Bond Actor is.....

And I think we'll stick to the "official" actors on this. Bob Holness and Barry Nelson were NOT better than Lazenby or Brosnan. laugh

There should be a 'Can't decide' option, or 'I like them all'

Dalton but you know, in the past couple of years -to some's deteriment- Lazenby has bounced into a close second. Without sounding a suck-up I like to attribute this change in thoughts to the likes of Lazenby., Collie and other like minded chaps.

Without trying to disappoint Hilly - as much as I love the Laz, when it comes to the greatest, there's no-one else but Connery. 8)

Con Seanery.

He's the most well-rounded of the Bonds. He could be tough, witty, sophisticated, and lethal in equal measure.

Dalton, followed by Craig. Connery is overrated, IMO.

Sir Sean, obviously. It's just too bad they never fully exploited his potential. If they had done OHMSS after TB instead of YOLT (like it's SUPPOSED to be) and had Connery in OHMSS, it would've been the greatest ever. Following up TB with YOLT and turning YOLT into what it was (when Connery had already been complaining about too many gadgets and so on) was the first big mistake in the film series, and IMO it never really recovered.

No harm repeating. Connery = best screen Bond. Dalton = best adaptation of Fleming's Bond. Connery gets the vote here.

I reject Connery and all his worshippers. There is only Dalton.

Put me down for Dalton too. Though I am big fan of Connery, Moore and Lazenby as well. As far as the truest incarnation of Fleming's characater goes, Dalton wins hands down IMO. Having said that, I visualise Connery when I read the books, though I guess it's due to the time era the books are set than anything else.

Post of all time.

Game Over.

I'm surprised all the Lazenby Lovers haven't attacked this poll.

Don't even ask who I voted for. It will offend.

Well, I thought the 2 votes for Leggy Laz were mine and Hilly's. But if he's voted for Dalton, who's the other Laz supporter?

I voted George Lazenby.
He should have made more. He was a real man. And not a thug like the current OO7.
Lazenby was ruthless, romantic, hard as nails, and his Bond smoked. Like James Bond should.
To bad he only made one. But that one film proved to be the best in the series.

Nah, I don't believe it.

Good to see Lazzers in third place. Dalton is overrated, though I do appreciate him now a lot more than I used to.

I'm with you, George Laz...er, Drax.

I didn't give Dalton much thought the first time I saw him, but he's grown on me. He's still not top three for me, but he was good for the movies he made.

A real shame too.

And concerning the Scash. That better be the real deal.

Sean is the Bond whose tenure I enjoyed the most.

Dalton is the one closest to Fleming's vision of the man.

Roger Moore is proof that people were in a collective crazy stupor in the 1970s (well him and Disco music). :tongue:
