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 Paris wondering what they could bring to the role.

Could Jean-Paul Rouve become the Seventh James Bond?

Rouve’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Dalida (2017), Julie Lescaut (1992-2000) and The Tuche Family (2011). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
