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 Lochlyn Munro become the Seventh James Bond?

Munro’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Charmed (1999-2000), White Chicks (2004) and Dracula 2000 (2000). His commercial appeal is growing, too.

The question for Munro now is – what next?

Three reasons Lochlyn Munro would be good for the James Bond franchise

  3. It would give Lochlyn Munro a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
