10 Actors Who Could Play the Next James Bond

  • Jim Freund

    Interesting that you left out the most obvious candidate — Tom Hiddleston. His performance in “The Night Manager” was proof he could handle the role.

    • Cris Lara

      Actually, he was pointed out first, you missed the paragraph: “The biggest contender so far has been TOM HIDDLESTON, who certainly would do the role justice. But he’s not
      the only actor capable of the job; these 10 actors could also wear the
      007 title with pride.”

    Fassbender is German/Irish. Stan is American. Brits would freak out if either was made Bond… like if a Brit played Superman. Oh wait. Still, the point remains.

    I like Jude Law or Ewan McGregor.

    • Cris Lara

      Stan is American cause he lives there since 12 years old, but he is an European – his childhood was in Europe (Romania and Austria).

    • Your point does not remain. Pure nonsense. Sean Connery is Scottish, Pierce Brosnan is Irish, and Barry Nelson was American. No one would freak out based solely on nationality. The next actor to play James Bond could literally be from anywhere in the world.

        Read up on your movie history and, then, get back to me. Specifically, read up on the James Bond books and movies, the actors who played James Bond and the public reception to each.

    I don’t know how could a (black) american actor play a British role though… James Bond is a Brutish spy. Nor, how could a woman play a man’s role. Weird…
    The actor should be able to speak with English accent. (Sebastian knows to speak like that, he’s done acting lessons in London, I don’t know about the others).

      Quite right — somehow my eyes glanced over that. Thanks.

    • Jim Freund

      One black actor who’s right for the part is Adrian Lester, but I’ve been convinced that his best reboot would be as the next Simon Templar.

      Are you talking about John Boyega? He’s British. He just put on an American accent for Star Wars.
