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 Canberra wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Xavier Samuel become the Seventh James Bond?
Samuel’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Adore (2013), The Twilight Saga (2010-2010) and Anonymous (2011). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Samuel now is – what next?
Three reasons Xavier Samuel would be good for the James Bond franchise

- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Samuel.
- It would give Xavier Samuel a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
