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 Los Angeles wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could George Segal become the Seventh James Bond?
Segal’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), It's My Party (1996) and Look Who's Talking (1989). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Segal now is – what next?
Three reasons George Segal 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 85-year-old American?

- It would give George Segal a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
