10 Actors We Would Love To See As James Bond

Is there any role in Hollywood that is more iconic than James Bond, a man so badass he is identified by 3 numbers and an iconic drink order? The role has changed actors' careers and has been a staple of the big screen for generations. Regardless of your thoughts on Daniel Craig as Bond, everyone has their own 'Bond' who they feel is the best one so far. Perhaps you liked the sly edge that Connery brought to the performances. Perhaps instead you appreciated the brash rawness that comes from Craig’s portrayal.

With the release of Spectre, Daniel Craig has come out and stated that this may in fact be his last film as the super spy. As one would expect from the Internet, there is rampant speculation on who will become the new James Bond. Spectre marks the 4th depiction of Bond for Daniel Craig, and while the original casting choice was not overwhelmingly positive, Craig’s films are a success both critically and financially. The premier for Craig, Casino Royale, was the highest for any James Bond film. That number has since been surpassed by the 3rd instalment Skyfall, which brought in $1.8 billion internationally.

There is no doubt that there is a huge buzz for Spectre. With all eyes on Bond right now, it is only natural that it will lead to the speculation of who gets to fill Craig's shoes. While we don’t know who the next Bond will be, it never hurts to guess! Plus, if any of these turn into a reality, guess who looks like a genius: This guy!

Idris Elba is widely considered to be one of the leading options for the next James Bond. Elba would be the first non-caucasian to take on the role and his acting talent cannot be denied. Idris has been all over the big screen in the past few years, with acting roles including but not limited to both Thor films. Idris Elba is also absolutely outstanding in his role on the hit drama The Wire. Anyone that is doubting his skill to be Bond, would not be for long after seeing what Elba is capable of with a good script. 3 Golden Globe nominations for best actor also add more credentials to his acting prowess. The Bond franchise would, and perhaps will be, in great hands with Idris Elba.
