Personally i think we’re beyond the point where a Bond candidate needs to look good in a tux to be cast. Acting chops that can portray Bond’s inner life, along with sex appeal (in that order) are the only remaining requirements in the post Craig Bond world-verse. [/quote]
But seeing an actor in a tux or a suit, and clean-shaven with a short haircut, helps me visualize an actor as a potential Bond much more than, say, the same actor wearing long hair/beard/workout gear/ flip flops (just as an example) .
Acting is of course the most important thing. As is attitude. But Bond has always had a classic style and the odds that any new actor will be outfit in a suit/ tux at some point are pretty good.
