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 Édouard Baer become the Seventh James Bond?
Baer’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Asterix & Obelix: God Save Britannia (2012), An Ordinary Execution (2010) and I Always Wanted to Be a Gangster (2008). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Baer now is – what next?
Three reasons Édouard Baer 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 53-year-old French?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Baer.
- It would give Édouard Baer a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
