  1. Got to agree with Jane on this one! The rest of the bonds are classic and each suave and sophisticated in their own way, but Daniel Craig’s version of the character is so down to earth and realistic!  With this soundtrack, I’ll be set for Skyfall!  Thanks, hope to win!

  2. Daniel Craig ,is my favorite Bond he is the darkly handsome ,haunted character that Ian Fleming wrote about , and I love that he looks like he can kick ass, and like his ass has been kicked…. alot!

  3. SO TOUGH!!!  I’m going to say Daniel Craig because he has brought the series into the 21st century while still keeping the integrity of the character that was established by Sean Connery.  Obviously I love Sean, we all do, right???!!!  But it’s fantastic to see another actor able to so adeptly sink into the role and bring it new life and vigor.  Bond never dies!!!
     
    P.S.  The title song “Skyfall” by Adele MIGHT just MIGHT be my new favorite.

  4. Daniel Craig, is my favorite James Bond. He’s fit and trim in his slim-cut blue suit and handsome in a slightly jug-eared way.  He has a combination of intense and easy-going features.  Mr Craig looks like a street tough individual who has been barely tamed by fashion design.  He has proved against all odds,  he is our James Bond for several years to come.  James Bond  “Live Long & Prosper” as the music from your  films continue to be listened to and enjoyed by many fans around the world 🙂
