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 Brasília wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Alexandre Borges become the Seventh James Bond?
Borges’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Além do Horizonte (2013-2014), Avenida Brasil (2012-2012) and The Buzz (2010-2011). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Borges now is – what next?
Three reasons Alexandre Borges would be good for the James Bond franchise
- It would clarify that Bond is a rotating identity: If M can be a woman, why can't James Bond be a 55-year-old Brazilian?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Borges.
- It would give Alexandre Borges a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
