Could Thomas Lennon become the Seventh James Bond?
Lennon’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Monster Trucks (2016), We're the Millers (2013) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Lennon now is – what next?
Three reasons Thomas Lennon would be good for the James Bond franchise

- It would give Thomas Lennon a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
