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 Vienna wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Elyas M'Barek become the Seventh James Bond?
M'Barek’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in The Physician (2013), Suck Me Shakespeer (2013) and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for M'Barek now is – what next?
Three reasons Elyas M'Barek 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 38-year-old Austrian?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as M'Barek.
- It would give Elyas M'Barek a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
