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 Bruno Lochet become the Seventh James Bond?
Lochet’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Superchondriac (2014), My Best Holidays (2012) and Nothing to Declare (2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Lochet now is – what next?
Three reasons Bruno Lochet 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 61-year-old French?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Lochet.
- It would give Bruno Lochet a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
