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 Justin Long become the Seventh James Bond?
Long’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Veronica Mars (2014), For a Good Time, Call... (2012) and Going the Distance (2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Long now is – what next?
Three reasons Justin Long would be good for the James Bond franchise

- It would give Justin Long a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
