When You say Dustin Hoffman…. do you think of James Bond?

From Rain man to James Bond?

In an interview with Sky News, for the premiere of his new movie Dustin Hoffman revealed his up until now as we know it at least, hidden desire.To play James Bond. He said it is a “pity” that the most qualified actor” (namely himself according to Hoffman) hasn’t been allowed to play James Bond.


MY TAKE:
Wait….Wait. Dustin Hoffman playing James Bond? OK Dustin, you aren’t British, you aren’t young, and you aren’t suave. I love your work man especially in Midnight Cowboy, Straw Dogs, and Rain Man. But you aren’t James Bond. Here would be that order of actors who would play James Bond if we lived in that universe: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Sean Connery again for “Never Say Never again”, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig, and Dustin Hoffman.

Dustin Hoffman as an action hero with a fake British accent. I don’t think it works.

Besides qualified? What does it mean to be qualified for the role of James Bond? You can’t be over 40, you have to be able to hold your liquor,have a British accent, beautiful women have to be willing to throw themselves at you, and you have to be able to work those little gadgets that you get in every movie.

As I said Dustin, I respect you. But I am sorry i don’t think at this stage you fit any of those qualifications.


Digg!
