Could Jean Benguigui become the Seventh James Bond?
Benguigui’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Fatal (2010), Lucky Luke and the Daltons (2004) and Ball and Chain (2002). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Benguigui now is – what next?
