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 Caio Castro become the Seventh James Bond?
Castro’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Trail of Lies (2013-2014), The Buzz (2010-2011) and Young Hearts (2007-2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Castro now is – what next?
Three reasons Caio Castro 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 31-year-old Brazilian?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Castro.
- It would give Caio Castro a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
