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 Ottawa wondering what they could bring to the role.

Could Henry Czerny become the Seventh James Bond?

Czerny’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Revenge (2011-2015), The Tudors (2007-2010) and The Pink Panther (1964-1993). His commercial appeal is growing, too.

The question for Czerny now is – what next?

Three reasons Henry Czerny would be good for the James Bond franchise

  1. It would clarify that Bond is a rotating identity: If M can be a woman, why can't James Bond be a 61-year-old Canadian?
  2. No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Czerny.
  3. It would give Henry Czerny a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
