Could John Ortiz become the Seventh James Bond?
Ortiz’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Kong: Skull Island (2017), A Dog's Purpose (2017) and Steve Jobs (2015). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Ortiz now is – what next?
Three reasons John Ortiz would be good for the James Bond franchise
