As Daniel Craig winds down his James Bond tenure, who should the next 007 be?
Rumor and wild speculation have led to a few predictions: Damian Lewis, Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill and Michael Fassbender.
Each would make a fine Bond, but if we may toss a few more names into the trilby hat: Matthew Goode, Jamie Dornan, Dan Stevens, Richard Madden, Rupert Friend and — yeah, we'll go there — Emily Blunt.
Now there are no rules about how old James Bond should be, but a look at previous Bond actors reveals a kind of middleage sweet spot.
Regardless of who will be the agent's next incarnation, there are some pretty big shoes to fill.
