I create context. I also write blog posts:

An American James Bond?

Posted: February 2nd, 2011 | Author: | No Comments »

So I was thinking the other day that it might be clever to write a character who’s the American version of James Bond. Like the American version of the office, just with that catchy theme song…

Except that it wouldn’t be clever. It would be crappy. A British sense of sophistication (read: arrogance) and the cheesy jokes and the accent that drops women’s pants are what make James Bond James Bond. There is no American version of that, because those things don’t exist in America.

But if you did go through with it and wanted to write an American James Bond, one who survives on a healthy appetite of ass-kicking and shallow women, well then… you’d have Daniel Craig’s Bond, wouldn’t you?
