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 Los Angeles wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Anson Mount become the Seventh James Bond?
Mount’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Hell on Wheels (2011-2016), Third Watch (2000-2001) and Inhumans (2017-). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Mount now is – what next?
Three reasons Anson Mount 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 48-year-old American?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Mount.
- It would give Anson Mount a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
