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 Prague wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Karel Roden become the Seventh James Bond?
Roden’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Orphan (2009), Largo Winch (2008) and Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Roden now is – what next?
Three reasons Karel Roden 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 58-year-old Czech?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Roden.
- It would give Karel Roden a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
