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 Berlin wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Sebastian Koch become the Seventh James Bond?
Koch’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Bridge of Spies (2015), A Good Day to Die Hard (2013) and Camelot (2011-2011). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Koch now is – what next?
Three reasons Sebastian Koch 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 57-year-old German?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Koch.
- It would give Sebastian Koch a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
