Visnjic Eyed as Bond Successor?


At the beginning of the year you couldn’t figure out what the hell was going on with the James Bond casting rumors, but things have quieted down since then, which leads me to believe that today’s bit of rumor may have some substance behind it.’s Ask Ausiello column is reporting that “ER” actor Goran Visnjic may be the new James Bond in Martin Campbell’s Casino Royale and even the show’s executive producer is making comments, check out the quote below:

Yes, it’s true. But should he get the role, it wouldn’t mean the end of Kovac. “We have a contingency plan,” says exec producer David Zabel. “We would film a bunch of stuff [with Kovac] at one time for later episodes. Or, depending on where the Bond film was shooting, he might be able to work on both at the same time. That’s what [George] Clooney did. He was shooting Batman & Robin for part of the day and ER the other part.”

It is taking the 007 team a long time to figure out just who exactly is going to take over the role, but hopefully we are coming closer to an actual decision. If you ask me Visnjic seems far too much like a pretty boy to take over the role with his long hair and on top of that, poor acting, but I guess that is why I am not a casting director.
