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 Ottawa wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Shawn Ashmore become the Seventh James Bond?
Ashmore’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), The Ruins (2008) and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Ashmore now is – what next?
Three reasons Shawn Ashmore 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 40-year-old Canadian?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Ashmore.
- It would give Shawn Ashmore a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
