Ralph Fiennes - Favourite for Next James Bond

Ralph Fiennes has been voted by film fans as their favourite to be the next James Bond. The British actor stormed ahead of George Clooney ("Confessions of a Dangerous Mind") who came in second.

In a survey of 1,000 people conducted by Amazon.com to celebrate the DVD and video release today of the latest Bond film "Die Another Day," 24 percent thought Fiennes would make the perfect replacement for current Bond Pierce Brosnan.

George Clooney took 15% of the vote for second position. Third place was shared by Colin Firth ("What a Girl Wants" / "Bridget Jones Diary") and Clive Owen ("The Chancer" / "Bourne Identity") 12% each, with pop singer Robbie Williams coming in fourth with only 11% of the vote.

Hollywood heavyweights Leonardo DiCaprio ("Gangs of New York"), Ben Affleck ("Daredevil") and Russell Crowe ("Beautiful Mind") got only 10 percent of the vote between them, while Hugh Grant ("Two Weeks Notice"), Jude Law ("Cold Mountain") and Ewan McGregor ("Moulin Rouge") were all missing from the list.
