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 Vin Diesel become the Seventh James Bond?
Diesel’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Fast & Furious 7 (2015) and Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Diesel now is – what next?
Three reasons Vin Diesel would be good for the James Bond franchise

- It would give Vin Diesel a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
