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 Canberra wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Kodi Smit-McPhee become the Seventh James Bond?
Smit-McPhee’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) and Let Me In (2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Smit-McPhee now is – what next?
