Daniel Craig for one simple reason:

MOTHERFUCKER RAN THROUGH A WALL!

It's Connery, but Craig is inching closer and closer.

Sean Connery, easily. Craig's first turn at the role was very impressive, but he has to deliver on the potential before I'd be willing to consider him.

Sean Connery for me too. He defined the role and all subsequent Bonds will be measured by the attributes he brought. Pierce Brosnan is my second favourite. Unfortunately, apart from Goldeneye, he never got quality material to work with. Daniel Craig was fantastic in Casino Royale, but I think Brosnan would have done equally well.

I thought Pierce Brosnan was great, but do you really see him doing the torture scene? I can't.

Brosnan is a very good actor, but I don't see the toughness needed in that scene from Brosnan.

Honestly, I don't know. However, altogether -- and I might stand corrected -- I think he has a bit more acting ability than Craig.

Admittedly, Daniel Craig's acting chops are suspect on occasion. He was less than a cipher in 'Munich' (I have no idea why he was chosen to be cast and he had no consequence on the film whatsoever). Then again, Pierce Brosnan stooped to receiving the heimlich from Robin Williams in drag. I mean, what kind of a man chokes on shrimp on a date with Sally Fields and the kid from 'Super Human Samurai Cyber Squad'? This is just all kinds of suspect.

I think Craig is a fine actor, but that's not terribly relevant in this case. Even the better Bond films don't demand more than simple professionalism.

Brosnan. I grew up with him as Bond. And his movies are among my favorite.

Daniel Craig isn't James Bond. He Jason Bourne lite.

I have a "friend" in the UK who thinks Roger Moore is the best. We've argued for years about this and every five years we watch the entire set to start the debate again.

Connery defined the on screen character
Craig has recreated it for a new generation

As for Roger Moore....

I went with Connery since I felt he captured the debonair side of Bond best, but if I could have chose second best as well it would have been Daniel Craig. I like the turn of a more determined and ruthless Bond.
