back to article Boffins brew up ideal Bond e-fit

Academics have used Ian Fleming's own opinion of how the ideal Bond would look to create a composite e-fit of 007, the Daily Telegraph reports.

    But what we need to know is... the ladies find 'him' attractive?

    If so, please could you link to a high-resolution version that I can print out and sellotape to my face.

    So its Nicolas Cage to be the next Bond

    It really looks like Nicolas Cage. After his showing in Ghost Rider maybe he's up for the challenge, maybe he can redeem himself for the Wicker Man fiasco.

    ""[Bond] reminds me rather of Hoagy Carmichael, but there is something cold and ruthless"."

    Looks to me like they've created an image of a lost Baldwin brother. Can Alec Baldwin do a convincing Scottish/American accent?

    Cheers, Tony.

    It looks like a very young Christopher Lee.

    Looks rather like "Big Brother"

    He reminds me of a younger version of "Big Brother" from the movie adaptation of George Orwell's "1984". License to kill indeed...

    I know who that is!

    It's South Africa's favourite supporting actor -- Arnold Vosloo!

    Hoagy Carmichael?


    Looks to me more like Basil Fawlty than Hoagy Carmichael.

    Now there's a Bond to dream about. If only they had dumped Roger Moore and picked up John Cleese...

    Its Chris Sarandon

    Its a young Chris Sarandon (as he looked in "Princess Bride" or "Fright Night").

    Has a resemblance of Dax Sheperd, from Without a Paddle
