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 Edinburgh wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could John Hannah become the Seventh James Bond?
Hannah’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Spartacus (2010-2011), The Words (2012) and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena (2011-2011). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Hannah now is – what next?
Three reasons John Hannah 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 John Hannah?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Hannah.
- It would give John Hannah a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
