I’ve been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it. But they won’t let me go, and I’ve agreed to do a couple more, but let’s see how this one does, because business is business and if the **** goes down, I’ve got a contract that somebody will happily wipe their a** with. Daniel Craig, unhappy Bond
|Sherlock and The Hobbit in London|
The name is Homes, Sherlock Holmes
So, here's our ten reasons why Sherlock ought to become the next James Bond:
- Because Benedict Cumberbatch can really act.
- Because Mr. Cumberbatch seems genuinely invested in his roles and willing to put forth an effort to make them memorable.
- Because perhaps we could borrow Moriarty to be a Bond villain. Andrew Scott played one of the best screen villains we've seen in years on the BBC's Sherlock and we really need to put Javier Bardem's goofball performance out of our minds.
- Because Cumberbatch is younger than Craig and looks the part a bit better.
- Because Sherlock's sidekick Watson is now the Hobbit and may be unavailable for further work with Sherlock, leaving Sherlock's schedule open.
- Because maybe we could bring some of the writers from the Sherlock series along with Sherlock to the next Bond film so it might make sense.
- Because Sherlock's brother Mycroft already works for MI6 and should be able to pull some strings to get him hired.
- Because we need a little less shooting and brute force in future Bond films and a little more of that ole Bond sophistication
- Because Sherlock already lives in London and its convenient.
- Because Daniel Craig looks like he really needs vacation and a job where he doesn't have to work out so much.
