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 Berlin wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Til Schweiger become the Seventh James Bond?
Schweiger’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in The Three Musketeers (2011), Kokowääh (2011) and Inglourious Basterds (2009). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Schweiger now is – what next?
Three reasons Til Schweiger 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 57-year-old German?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Schweiger.
- It would give Til Schweiger a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
