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 Los Angeles wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could John Schneider become the Seventh James Bond?
Schneider’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Smallville (2001-2011), Wild Things: Foursome (2010) and The Dukes of Hazzard (1979-1985). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Schneider now is – what next?
Three reasons John Schneider 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 57-year-old American?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Schneider.
- It would give John Schneider a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
