I've finally decided who I want to take over the role of M
in the next film...
Submitted for your approval: Jared Harris
The son of actor Richard Harris
(the original Dumbledore in Harry Potter
), you may know him from his film roles as Captain Mike in Benjamin Button
or Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes: GOS
, as well as his TV roles as Lane Pryce on Mad Men
and David Robert Jones on Fringe
. Recently revisited Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man
and was surprised to find him there too, smack dab in the middle between Iggy Pop and Billy Bob Thorton.
Anyway, he is quite the diverse British actor who has a certain presence and sophistication that I think would translate awesomely to the role of "M." I see he and Craig working together very well.
