Why I think these actors would be perfect as James Bond

The best James Bond was certainly Sean Connery, who succeeded in depicting the character as a sophisticated, elegant and remarkable spy, whose biggest virtue is his charm. James Bond, a true gentleman who always wears the best suits, was also played by George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.

The person who plays James Bond needs to look like a gentleman and be British or Scottish — or able to convince me with his accent. I think the recent James Bond films don’t resemble the classics: there’s no music during the film, the opening sequences aren’t anything like it should be and James Bond is played like he was part of the Expendables cast. His depression and darkness are reminiscent of Batman in The Dark Knight. Also, what happened to the famous Bond lines that no woman can resist?

However, all the fans of the James Bond films were happy to finally see that the directors and actors realized what the character is actually about when Spectre came out.

However, the question is who should be the next James Bond?

1. Clive Owen

He’s British, handsome, looks like a gentleman in a suit and is a great actor. If it was up to me, I would definitely consider him for this part. He’s famous for his roles in Closer, Sin City, King Arthur and Croupier.

Clive Owen could take this part to the next level and be as good as Sean Connery.

2. Hugh Jackman

Famous for his parts in X-Men, Les Misérables, Prisoners and many others, this actor is certainly one of the sexiest and most talented actors in the world. His parents are English, so I don’t see why he couldn’t play this legendary role.

When you see Hugh Jackman, you definitely see the next James Bond. Handsome, attractive, an excellent actor and — most importantly — looks like a gentleman spy who could easily win over women’s hearts.

3. Michael Fassbender

This German-Irish actor has experience both in films and on stage, and we all remember him from the new X-Men movies and Inglourious Basterds. We’ve seen him in every role, except for James Bond. Directors, what are you waiting for?

Many women will certainly agree that Michael Fassbender would be the perfect choice for the new James Bond.

4. Dan Stevens

The talented English actor is most famous for his role in Downton Abbey, but with his role in The Guest has shown us that he has what it takes to pull of a convincing James Bond. He would certainly be a surprise as no one would expect him to absolutely rock this part.

We are all looking forward to seeing him as Beast in Beauty and the Beast, directed by Bill Condon, who couldn’t possibly have made a better choice than matching Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as Beast.

These four actors would take the role of James Bond to next level, and mark another James Bond era. While Clive Owen and Hugh Jackman look perfect for this part, you shouldn’t doubt Michael Fassbender’s charm, and Dan Stevens might surprise you with his acting skills.

What do you think? Who should be the next James Bond?
