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 Canberra wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Anthony LaPaglia become the Seventh James Bond?
LaPaglia’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Without a Trace (2002-2009), Frasier (1993-2004) and Sweet and Lowdown (1999). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for LaPaglia now is – what next?
Three reasons Anthony LaPaglia 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 60-year-old Australian?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as LaPaglia.
- It would give Anthony LaPaglia a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
