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 Paris wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Manu Payet become the Seventh James Bond?
Payet’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in The Players (2012), The Perfect Date (2010) and All That Glitters (2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Payet now is – what next?
Three reasons Manu Payet 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 45-year-old French?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Payet.
- It would give Manu Payet a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
