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 Brasília wondering what they could bring to the role.

Could Paulo José become the Seventh James Bond?

José’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Em Família (2014-2014), Brazilian Women (2012-2012) and The Clown (2011). His commercial appeal is growing, too.

The question for José now is – what next?

Three reasons Paulo José would be good for the James Bond franchise

  1. It would clarify that Bond is a rotating identity: If M can be a woman, why can't James Bond be a 83-year-old Brazilian?
  2. No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as José.
  3. It would give Paulo José a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
