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 Cardiff wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Rhys Ifans become the Seventh James Bond?
Ifans’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Snowden (2016), Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) and She's Funny That Way (2014). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Ifans now is – what next?
Three reasons Rhys Ifans 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 55-year-old Welsh?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Ifans.
- It would give Rhys Ifans a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
