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 Kevin Kline become the Seventh James Bond?
Kline’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Beauty and the Beast (2017), The Pink Panther (2006-2006) and Life as a House (2001). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Kline now is – what next?
Three reasons Kevin Kline 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 73-year-old American?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Kline.
- It would give Kevin Kline a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
