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 Ottawa wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Kiefer Sutherland become the Seventh James Bond?
Sutherland’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in 24 (Live Another Day) (2014-2014), Touch (2012-2013) and 24 (2001-2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Sutherland now is – what next?
Three reasons Kiefer Sutherland 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 54-year-old Canadian?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Sutherland.
- It would give Kiefer Sutherland a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
