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 Reno become the Seventh James Bond?
Reno’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Days and Nights (2013), 22 Bullets (2010) and Couples Retreat (2009). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Reno now is – what next?
Three reasons Jean Reno 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 71-year-old French?

- It would give Jean Reno a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
