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 Michael Imperioli become the Seventh James Bond?
Imperioli’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Law & Order (2004-2006), The Lovely Bones (2009) and The Sopranos (1999-2007). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Imperioli now is – what next?
Three reasons Michael Imperioli would be good for the James Bond franchise

- It would give Michael Imperioli a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
