What do you guys make of this? I dont mind if bond is a different person in each series of movies and bond being just a code name.

But bond is supposed to be the person not a code name. And the character is a white male. You cant just say, get a female Asian actress to play the role.

What do you guys think?

Seems unnecessary. Just remake Shaft if you desperately want a black spy.

Which they are doing. Netflix bought the non-US rights for it a while back (because it would do awful outside of the US anyway so might as well sell it to a streaming service).

Everything is being politicized. Characters can't stay true to their roots anymore if the character was white. If the character was another race, they'd never change it to a white person anymore.

Asians are never even considered for most of the race-bending roles and it's ridiculous. Cho is awesome too. Have liked him in everything I've seen him in since first noticing him, like most people, in H&K.

I really don't get why people are so hung up on skin color. It's just a f***in color get over it. Should go both ways though. If a dude is normally Asian and they put a white guy in his position, it really shouldn't matter. For bond, as long as they act like bond, it really doesn't matter.
