Every man, at some point in his life, wishes he could be James Bond. And with the news that Daniel Craig may well be out as 007, there are a whole bunch of actors from London to Paris wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Alain Delon become the Seventh James Bond?
Delon’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Asterix at the Olympic Games (2008), Red Sun (1971) and Borsalino (1970). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Delon now is – what next?
Three reasons Alain Delon would be good for the James Bond franchise

- It would give Alain Delon a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
