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 Rodrigo Hilbert become the Seventh James Bond?

Hilbert’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Dinossaurs & Robots (2011-2011), Seize the Day (2009-2010) and América (2005-2005). His commercial appeal is growing, too.

The question for Hilbert now is – what next?

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