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 Brasília wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Thiago Lacerda become the Seventh James Bond?
Lacerda’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Time and the Wind (2013), The Life We Lead (2011-2012) and Seize the Day (2009-2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Lacerda now is – what next?
