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 Stockholm wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Stellan Skarsgård become the Seventh James Bond?
Skarsgård’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Cinderella (2015), Nymphomaniac (2013) and The Physician (2013). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Skarsgård now is – what next?
Three reasons Stellan Skarsgård would be good for the James Bond franchise
