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 Stockholm wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Dolph Lundgren become the Seventh James Bond?
Lundgren’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in The Expendables 3 (2014), The Expendables 2 (2012) and The Expendables (2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Lundgren now is – what next?
Three reasons Dolph Lundgren 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 62-year-old Swedish?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Lundgren.
- It would give Dolph Lundgren a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
