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 Taylor Kitsch become the Seventh James Bond?
Kitsch’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Savages (2012), Friday Night Lights (2006-2011) and X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Kitsch now is – what next?
Three reasons Taylor Kitsch 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 Kitsch.
- It would give Taylor Kitsch a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
