Ha Ha Ha!
It would have been a thriller.
Still laughing so I can't vote yet!
MIchael Jackson was an incredibly talented person in many ways. As a musician, a singer, a composer, a lyricist, a choreographer, a dancer, a director, etc...
But as James Bond? Hell no!
However I could see him as a villain. Everything that would have made him a terrible Bond (his bizarre looks, his whispery voice, his other worldly persona) could have been used to create a great villain, one that would fit right in with Dr. No, Goldfinger, Ernest Stavro Blofeld, Odd Job, Jaws, etc...
I hadn't thought of that but you are absolutely right! 😊
In the movies, no. Not because he couldn't have given a convincing performance, he may have been able to, I don't know, as he was actually quite talented and versatile. He couldn't have done it because the audience would never have accepted him in such a role. We often limit performers roles because we have narrowly typecast what we will accept from them.
In real life, he absolutely could have pulled it off, simply because people wouldn't have suspected it of him and yet he could flawlessly move through different classes and cultures. Real life spies are/were seldom the type we have come to expect from what we've seen on the screen.
Michael Jackson also wanted to play Peter Pan and Spider-Man...
No way! Not even close!
No .... not even close. (Sorry Michael)
If he could tone down his theatricals, yes. If not, no.
The character of James Bond has this silent charisma, he's suave and calm unless when fighting. Michael had plenty of charisma, he was smooth and generally a serene person, but he had a presence that would shadow James Bond completely.
Why not, he was very low key in real life. It was the shows and the crowds that caused all the hub bub.
No, I don't think he would have been able to play that role very convincingly. I could be wrong of course, but I'm pretty sure I'm not. :)
It would suck, really bad.
James Bond was never known to walk backwards!
I liked every appearance of MJ If he got a bond role it would be different but good.
That would have been Bad! HEE-HEE
