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 Brussels wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Jonathan Zaccaï become the Seventh James Bond?
Zaccaï’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Robin Hood (2010), Sous le soleil (1998-1998) and The Beat That My Heart Skipped (2005). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Zaccaï now is – what next?
Three reasons Jonathan Zaccaï 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 50-year-old Belgian?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Zaccaï.
- It would give Jonathan Zaccaï a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
