Search for Bond
Since Pierce Brosnan is out, the producers of the long running James Bond series are looking for a replacement. Here is an article with the short list of replacements:
Hugh Jackman, Ewan McGregor, Jude Law, Heath Ledger, Clive Owen and Orlando Bloom are among the names that have been floated so far as possible replacements for Brosnan.

Last August, Hulk star Eric Bana was rumored to be stepping into 007's shoes; by January, one British oddsmaker had stopped taking bets on Mission: Impossible 2 bad guy Dougray Scott after wagers on the actor increased disproportionately.

I'll go on record saying that I'm available, but will concede that I'm probably a little too short for the role--but then so are Jude Law, Orlando Bloom and Ewan McGregor. I'd say Clive Owen or Eric Bana. Hugh Jackman would be OK, but just seems a to lack something.

The original James Bond in Ian Flemming's novels was supposedly 6'0" in height and Flemming wrote the character thinking that he looked like Hoagy Carmichael.
