William Boyd is new to writing novels for the James Bond series. Now it looks like Boyd would like to see Daniel Day Lewis play James Bond. Boyd's new bond novel is set in 1969, in the same style of former Bond novelist Ian Fleming. Boyd said this when talking to The Independent: "If there was going to be an actor to play my James Bond, I'd choose another actor who's been in a film of mine and who is called Daniel. Daniel Day Lewis actually resembles the Bond that Fleming describes. He was tall, lean, rangy, very dark-haired, good looking man. There's a sense that image is what he saw his Bond looking like." Boyd has also made a point of saying that he feels that some of the more recent actors who have portrayed Bond have gotten "further and further away from Fleming's Bond." Boyd followed up that statement: "The current Bond is fantastically interesting even though the current films are half a century on than the novels. The link gets fainter and fainter. The Bond films are all contemporary." Daniel Day Lewis did not hesitate in saying that he is interested in being our next James Bond. Only once Daniel Craig is finished with the part, of course.
