Craig's too old , should've been replaced after last movie.
That said, if the go woke and put a female Bond in there, they'll severely hurt the franchise to a point of near death.
haven’t all the previous bonds been old?

I believe at one point Halley berry was supposed to get a spin off of the bond series, her being of the American division.

I want Chris Pratt as Bond, after watching infinity war, I think he could pull it off. Or Ryan Reynolds.

Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba are too cool for bond.

Yes, most got older, but Craig looks... not fresh.
I think it's best to keep a real brit as bond though, I honestly can't remember a when I heard a fake English accent from an amerikan that sounded okay (and I'm swedish). I do like your choices though, but I did lol a bit thinking about them speaking British lol

I think there’s only been one American who has played Bond, in Climax?

I wonder if Conery changed his accent when he played Bond. I don’t know what the rest of the world is like but most people here seem to stereotype a British accent exclusively with a Cockney accent.

I know serval Americans have passed on it, as well as others from different countries.

Yeah, I think most here take a British accent to mean just about any accent from the isles, could be Scottish etc.
Connery sounded Scottish(-ish) no? Talked pretty much the same in interviews back then as in his movies.
I'm wondering if it's as hard for the brits to pass on an amerikan accent... Butler, Rick from twd and others sound strange when trying for it. I sound swedish af when doing the English but then it's not my first language, doing different accents in my own language is fairly easy (even though border charactature).

My picks for new bond (taking into account him playing the roll for at least a decade) ;

Richard Madden (maybe a bit young still? )
Ben Barnes
Luke Evans (perhaps too known a face? )
Rupert friend

I think the main problem for me finding a suitably actor is age (it's a narrow sweetspot for the first movie) and the fact that you most prob have to get a brit. It's not a huge roster imo, unless they go with someone wholly unknown, which I actually would like.
