The cons: ‘Game of Thrones’ has got enough problems with the books’ author George RR Martin’s going AWOL on writing duties without losing one of its major stars.
Gillian Anderson has jokingly thrown her hat into the ring to play 007, retweeting a fake Bond poster. But who should be cast as the first female Bond?
Poor old Daniel Craig still seems to be torturing himself about whether or not to sign up for another Bond movie. This week it was reported that not even a £68 million paycheque could tempt him back for two more films (although there has been some backtracking on that).

Cue all the miserable-bloke Bond fans (you know, ones who say stuff like: ‘I’m not sexist or racist but…’ ) getting windbaggy and angry. These are six female actors we’d like to see in the running.
Sam Mendes has confirmed that he definitely won’t direct Bond 25 – so who do we think could?
