Could Scott Foley become the Seventh James Bond?
Foley’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in True Blood (2012-2012), Scrubs (2002-2009) and Dawson's Creek (1998-1998). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Foley now is – what next?

- It would give Scott Foley a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
