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 Mexico City wondering what they could bring to the role.

Could Diego Luna become the Seventh James Bond?

Luna’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Rogue One (2016), The Bad Batch (2016) and Casa de Mi Padre (2012). His commercial appeal is growing, too.

The question for Luna now is – what next?

Three reasons Diego Luna would be good for the James Bond franchise

  1. It would clarify that Bond is a rotating identity: If M can be a woman, why can't James Bond be a 40-year-old Mexican?
  2. No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Luna.
  3. It would give Diego Luna a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
