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 David Duchovny become the Seventh James Bond?
Duchovny’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Californication (2007-2014), The X-Files (1993-2002) and Chaplin (1992). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Duchovny now is – what next?

- It would give David Duchovny a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
