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 Isaiah Washington become the Seventh James Bond?
Washington’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Romeo Must Die (2000), Grey's Anatomy (2005-2007) and The 100 (2014-). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Washington now is – what next?
Three reasons Isaiah Washington 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 59-year-old American?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Washington.
- It would give Isaiah Washington a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
