Who is the best James Bond actor?

Daniel Craig sucked balls in Casino Royale.

Choose, but don't mark all of them.

Alfster - It's a sport where men shave their legs and wear bright colored lycra. Figure it out.

Moore was definitely the best Bond. Brosnan a close second. Connery was all right, but not that good. Better than the rest, though. Connery is one of the most boring and narrow-ranged actors out there. He essentially plays himself in every production he's in. I only liked him in The Russia House and The Name of the Rose. Although, to be honest, I haven't seen every production he's been in.

Do I have to put Roger Moore in fifth even. I thought he made a dreadful Bond. Boring.

Vin Diesel is my favorite bond. Matt Damon is #2.

I didn't see them in the poll though.

Connery. No one compares.
The only one worse than Brosnan was Dalton.

Sean Connery was probably the best, IMO.
However, I really liked Roger Moore as he was the Bond I first saw.

Connery.

Brosnan was good, too. GoldenEye is my favourite Bond film. Tomorrow Never Dies was good, too. but then came The World Is Not Enough (spoiled by Denise Richards) and Die Another Day (James Bond vs. Johnny Tran? ugh).

and i think Craig's got potential to be the best yet. or at least a close second.

Sean Connery: Got his butt whooped just like the Bond in the books, movies were true to the originals.
Roger Moore: Started the invincible Bond trend (7 guys with machine guns, 7 bullets in a Walther PPK....and he wins the gun battle...as if), was more about special effects than true acting.
George Lazenby: Did well in his one-hit-wonder, wore a kilt like a real man, believable.
Timothy Dalton: Not his fault the Invincible Bond preceded him, was believable anyway.
Pierce Brosnan: Moore clone, though with a good sense of humor.
Daniel Craig: Return to roots in spirit, though the movies have been ruined before him, so he has a long road to tread.

The one Bond movie I wish would be redone is The Spy Who Loved Me. Nothing like the book at all, entirely different plot as if the book never existed. The book however was one of if not the best Bond novels, JB sans Q's gadgets or the backing of nuclear submarines, fighting American gangsters with the equivalent of a WalMart sporting goods department. Gritty, emotional, Bond showing a stupid woman-afflicted side...and with a good dose of exposing Bond as an adrenaline freak. Yeah, I'd go with Daniel Craig for that one.

I voted George Lazenby, but it was a pity vote. I don't really think he's the best, but I love On Her Majesty's Secret Service and I feel bad for him as the forgotten Bond

You know Wordbiker....you pointed out in your post what always bored me about Moore as Bond... the dam guy never lost a fight (with a weapon or otherwise). And his delivery just didn't do it for me. Brosnan had a good witty delivery. Dalton was decent, and I agree that Craig (although I was skeptical at first...has potential...but we will have to wait and see how the next couple bond films turn out).

Craig did a most excellent job portraying a developing, yet to be super suave Bond. Casino Royale is the first book in the series. Although I still doubt it Bond's bits and pieces were in working order for the rest of the novels.

I voted Roger Moore.

I voted for Connery but could've gone with Lazenby for On Her Majesty's Secret Service. That's one of my favorite Bond movie's. Was not a big fan of Moore or Brosnan. Dalton was ok as it was intersting to see a Bond that actually showed some emotion unlike Moore who was a stiff IMO.
