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 Erick Elías become the Seventh James Bond?
Elías’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in ¿Qué culpa tiene el niño? (2016), Niña de mi Corazón (2010-2010) and In the Name of Love (2008-2009). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Elías now is – what next?
Three reasons Erick Elías 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 42-year-old Mexican?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Elías.
- It would give Erick Elías a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
