First Harry Potter, now...Bond?!

With only two films left in the Harry Potter series, star Daniel Radcliffe could be ready to exchange his wizard robes and wand for a tuxedo and Beretta 418. Apparently, the producers behind the James Bond series have been eager to sign Radcliffe to do at least one movie based on the series of Young Bond books by Charlie Higson. The books feature Bond as he goes through college, however, I am sure it will reflect the newly 'realed-up' approach taken in last year's Casino Royale.

For anyone who thinks this is a good idea, I have two words for you: Hannibal Rising. On his newest comedy CD, Werewolves and Lollipops, Patton Oswalt does this really great bit about how George Lucas screwed up the prequel trilogy. He basically said something along the lines of Lucas taking all these characters we love, like Darth Vader and Boba Fett, and giving us a chance to see them as crying, snot-nosed children.

Who wants to see that with any character they find 'cool' or 'badass'? I don't want a whiny James Bond struggling to hone his rapier wit and game with the ladies. James Bond before he became 'JAMES BOND' would be a guy just like the rest of us. There's plenty of movies about regular people, so I don't really care to see a James Bond movie with normal everyday struggles. Radcliffe's Bond wouldn't even be allowed to kill anyone as an agent since Daniel Craig officially made Bond's first two kills in the prologue of Royale.

I like Daniel Radcliffe as an actor. He's going to have a hard time shaking his Harry Potter image, and I'm pretty sure he won't be making a big-screen version of Equus anytime soon, but this Young Bond thing could very well destroy his career. If I was Radcliffe, I would just work out non-stop until I was old enough to play the regular, adult Bond, and just do that.
