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 Stockholm wondering what they could bring to the role.

Could Peter Stormare become the Seventh James Bond?

Stormare’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in 22 Jump Street (2014), The Last Stand (2013) and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013). His commercial appeal is growing, too.

Three reasons Peter Stormare would be good for the James Bond franchise

  2. No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Stormare.
  3. It would give Peter Stormare a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
