That usually comes quite late in the production process. Until then, expect whoever happens to be number one in any given week to be "hotly tipped for the new Bond theme".

Demi Lovato then :mrgreen: on the serious side, I think Dua Lipa would a good choice. Has the right kind of voice.

A Coral spokesman said: “It is easy to see why punters are backing Tom Hardy to play the next James Bond and following a flurry of bets behind the British actor. He is now the clear favourite to be the next 007.” Meanwhile Norton is in second place at 5-2 followed by Jack Huston at 6-1 and Idris Elba and Aidan Turner at 8-1.-------baloney :!: Who is actually putting down money on this nonsense?

It's so hot here in Britain (or bits of it). I have not seen any rain for two months.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44957090

UK heatwave: Temperature record could be broken this week

The UK's all-time temperature record could be broken by Friday as the hot and dry summer continues.
Highs of up to 37C (99F) are forecast in southern, eastern and central England, but the Met Office says "if conditions all come together", the record of 38.5C (101F) could be beaten.
That was set in Kent in August 2003.

Not just Britain. We are off to Greece in just over a month. They will probably still be clearing up the damage from the terrible wildfires there.

According to the American Psychological Association, millennials are the most stressed out generation ever. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the unhappiness and uncertainty that millennial women experience toward their profession are leading them to hit career burnout before age "30." :shock: Burnout is described in the ICD-10 as a “state of vital exhaustion.” It includes emotional exhaustion or fatigue, depersonalization, isolation and dissatisfaction with one's level of personal accomplishment. Burnout is related to chronic stress and often exhibited as cynicism. Over the last several years, much discussion has been focused on whether burnout should be considered a stand-alone illness, but it is not currently recognized on its own as a mental disorder.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's net worth has fallen more than $16 billion after the company reported weaker-than-expected second-quarter results and issued guidance that its financial future isn't as rosy as some investors thought it might be. Set against this backdrop, one activist investor wants Zuckerberg out as the firm's chairman. :ROFL:

Zuckerberg has been getting side eye from a lot of people(myself included)for a while.Literally the only reason I have it is because of keeping in touch with certain family members and friends.

You don't need Facebook for that. Your simple emails and telephone are quite sufficient. I still believe Facebook is a fading fad.

Henry Cavill: “I think Bond would be a really fun role. It’s British, it’s cool.”

He continued: “I think that now that I have my Mission: Impossible badge we can do real stunts and really amp it up as well. I would love to do it of course,” he told Yahoo Movies. "I'd love to play a Brit. I don't get to play a Brit very often. So yes, I would love the opportunity and if they were to ask I would say 'yes'."

No sorry, way too handsome, too suave and too debonair! That is certainly not Bond! Bring on the rejects from the Quasimodo casting call, that's what I call gritty!

The CBS CEO, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, is accused of unwanted kissing and touching in a New Yorker article set to be published Friday. The New Yorker is poised to publish an article by Ronan Farrow that includes allegations of sexual misconduct on the part of embattled CBS chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves, The Hollywood Reporter has learned :!: Julie's Chen's hubby to boot so how does the so-called "women's rights" advocate explain this about her hubby, who she married after only 2 weeks of his divorce in 2003, by the way :?: :!: Chen has zero appeal, cannot interview properly, is a joke on CBS' Big Brother, and yet, being the CEO's 'current' partner, remains on CBS. Where is the outrage by the media about this Colbert boss? :!:

BBC Culture just published an article on Kevin McClory and Warhead. Thought I'd share, even though I doubt it will tell anyone here anything they don't already know: http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/201807 ... ocid=twcul

Six women have accused CBS Chairman and CEO Les Moonves of sexual harassment, according to Ronan Farrow's latest report, published by The New Yorker on Friday.
Additionally, more than two dozen company employees, past and present, detailed incidents of harassment, gender discrimination or retaliation at CBS, the report said :!: In response to the story, Moonves, 68, provided a statement to The New Yorker saying, "I recognize that there were times decades ago when I may have made some women uncomfortable by making advances." He continued: "Those were mistakes, and I regret them immensely. But I always understood and respected -- and abided by the principle -- that 'no' means 'no,' and I have never misused my position to harm or hinder anyone's career."----------Stephen Colbert's boss to boot :!: What will 'wifey' Julie Chen say now after he resigns most likely?
