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 Los Angeles wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Topher Grace become the Seventh James Bond?
Grace’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Interstellar (2014), Take Me Home Tonight (2011) and Predators (2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Grace now is – what next?
Three reasons Topher Grace 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 American?

- It would give Topher Grace a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
