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 Paris wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Roschdy Zem become the Seventh James Bond?
Zem’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Outside the Law (2010), Four Lovers (2010) and Days of Glory (2006). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Zem now is – what next?
Three reasons Roschdy Zem 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 French?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Zem.
- It would give Roschdy Zem a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
