In this week's Friday Fiver, we picked out five actors who could potentially make a good 007. Continue below to find out who made the cut.
Ignoring his ginger hair (Bond traditionally has dark hair, but that didn't stop Daniel Craig from being cast as the secret agent), Damian Lewis certainly has the presence and the acting chops to give the role of 007 a try. The Emmy award-winning Homeland star also attended Eton College, much like Bond did.
Idris Elba has been discussed as possibly being the first black Bond. Although Ian Fleming never envisioned the idea, the Bond franchise has remained relevant due to its willingness to evolve throughout the years. Elba currently stars as DCI Luther in the BBC's crime thriller Luther and has also impressed in the past as Russell 'Stringer' Bell on The Wire.
British-born Josh Bowman has made it in America, playing Daniel Grayson in the hit show Revenge. Although only 24, the actor could be a great choice in the future - he already has the tall, dark and handsome look down, and if Craig sticks with Bond for a few more films, it'll give Bowman plenty of time to mature and get involved in some action projects.
Justified lead Timothy Olyphant has picked up plaudits for his turn as US deputy marshal Raylan Givens. Yes, he's American and thus would have no chance of becoming the new Bond without a massive outcry, but he's been in a fair few shootouts and standoffs on Justified, is incredibly badass and is a charismatic and fine actor.
Although not a conventional choice to play Bond, Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch has the potential to bring a different slant to Fleming's character. His extensive TV, film, radio and theatre credentials make him more than capable of taking on the role, and the intelligence and quick-thinking he displayed with the character of Sherlock Holmes would suit Bond.
