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 in London wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Toby Jones become the Seventh James Bond?
Jones’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Dad's Army (2016), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Jones now is – what next?
Three reasons Toby Jones 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 Toby Jones?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Jones.
- It would give Toby Jones a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
