2 Matt Bomer Matt Bomer Matthew Staton "Matt" Bomer is an American actor. He made his television debut with Guiding Light in 2001, and gained recognition with his recurring role in the NBC television series Chuck as Bryce Larkin.

With his talent, wit, charisma, focus - nobody could play James Bond better than Matt Bomer! Not to mention his sex appeal and macho looks.

He is gorgeous. Had a great show where he played a similar character. Fabulous actor and should be the next Bond!

He has it all, looks, charisma, wit, Bomer would bring a special something to the character as he has in the previous roles he's played, perfect to be the next James Bond!

Matt would make a great James Bond! He has everything thing needed to play James Bond looks, sex appeal, talent.

3 Henry Cavill Henry Cavill

I Think Henry Cavill would be really Good choice to Next for James Bond and the one Who played from Man of Steel but sounds play Both characters Between to films Action (James Bond) and Superheroes (Superman).

Cavill has got the style and sophistication of the legendary Pierce Brosnan, make a long opinion short Henry Cavill IS and WOULD BE the best James Bond

The guy's already Superman. He can stay as just Superman. Giving him more regularly-scheduled wheelbarrows full of money would just be unfair for everyone else. - BKAllmighty

I guess Henry Cavill would be the logical choice. After seeing him in Man from U.N.C.L.E., it's almost like he would be perfect for the role. Keep in mind, he may not even be interested in taking on the role, it's a role that had certainly worn down Daniel Craig, who says his next Bond will be his last. Just to narrow the list down, I would say Cavill, Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hiddleston and someone I don't see anywhere on this list, Gerard Butler would all be a good choice. - Ned964

4 Christian Bale Christian Bale Christian Charles Philip Bale is an English actor. He has starred in both blockbuster films and smaller projects from independent producers and art houses.

Only two people I think could play bond, I have already voted for one of them, but Christian Bale is a great actor a true all rounder, if he got the role of the next James Bond I would love it and look forward to it.

Known For- Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, The Prestige, Public Enemies, American Hustle. - adhipatya118

Christian Bale is my all time favorite actor. Sometimes I'll watch bad movies just cause he's in them. - letdot52

Nobody can do better than Christian bale

Totally! I like Daniel Craig as 007, but Michael Fassbender could NAIL this role! - MontyPython

When I saw x-men first Class I knew He should play bond - Siebren

Seems the type to play bond 100%

This man is a genius actor. Michael, go for it...its your destiny...

He has received nominations for two Academy Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, three Golden Globe Awards and two British Academy Awards, winning one. In 2007, he received an Honorary César and was named a knight of the Order more.

Insanely good looking. To die for. Fit and ready. He will be the best Bond ever. He has ultimate sex appeal and that is most of the role.

Daniel Craig is the best James Bond ever. But Jude Law would probably be the third best (after Craig and Connery). - PetSounds

9 Ewan McGregor Ewan McGregor Ewan Gordon McGregor is a Scottish actor. His first professional role was in 1993, when he won a leading role in the Channel 4 series Lipstick on Your Collar.

I'd love to see what he would do with a role like this.

10 Liam Neeson Liam Neeson Liam John Neeson, OBE is an actor from Northern Ireland. In 1976, he joined the Lyric Players' Theatre in Belfast for two years. He then acted in the Arthurian film, Excalibur.

Taken, sets the stage for this amazing and talented actor to evolve into the next James Bond...Liam Neeson is as kind and friendly as he is talented. Action flows in his veins, he is the best choice for 007 hands down...

No offense but he probably would be a bit to old - micahisthebest

Good but need a younger guy

In Kingston Ontario Canada, Liam is the one and only choice for the next evolution of Bond. Good luck Mr. Neeson.

Sir Sean would be proud of you sir...cheers.

11 Benedict Cumberbatch Benedict Cumberbatch Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch is an English actor and film producer who has performed in film, television, theatre and radio.

He is good actor but too intellectual to play bond

12 Orlando Bloom Orlando Bloom Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom is an English actor. After having his breakthrough as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he rose to fame by further appearing in epic fantasy, historical epic, and fantasy adventure films.

Orlando what, no please looks too play boyish got 007 role

Known For- The Pirates of Carrabien Series, The Lord of the Ring Series, The Hobbit Series. - adhipatya118

13 Idris Elba Idris Elba

Black 007 Hmm mm leg see

It might just work.

Full package

Maybe,if 20 another white man no want Bond role.

14 Joseph Gordon-Levitt Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Ok. I know a lot of originally-American character roles are being given to non-Americans these days (Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, Wolverine, etc), but there's just something inexcusably unforgiving about giving a famous British character to an American. Don't ask me why I feel this way but I just can't imagine this ever actually happening with Bond. - BKAllmighty

Known for- 500 Days of Summer, Inception, Don Jon, The Walk, The Dark Knight Rises, Looper. - adhipatya118

15 Richard Madden Richard Madden Richard Madden is a Scottish stage, film, and television actor best known for portraying Robb Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones and Prince Kit in Disney's Cinderella.

He could play a younger version of Bond and he could make Bond Scottish again.

16 Robert Downey Jr

He is a great actor, but can you imagine him as James Bond? Instead of firing guns, he's admiring himself or telling everybody how great he is... Nah. NEVER EVER. And he's very attractive, but he doesn't look like a James Bond( but maybe that's a good thing? )

No way!

I think it would be a great choice really but I don’t think he would like to be attached for another 10 years to a franchise. - Sa26

17 Sam Heughan
18 Nicolas Cage Nicolas Cage Nicolas Kim Coppola, known professionally as Nicolas Cage, is an American actor and producer. He is well known for his roles in Raising Arizona, Moonstruck, Vampire's Kiss, Wild at Heart, Honeymoon in Vegas, Red Rock West, Leaving Las Vegas, The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off, City of Angels, 8MM, Bringing more.
19 Sam Claflin Sam Claflin
20 Jensen Ackles Jensen Ackles Jensen Ross Ackles is an American actor and director. He is mostly known for his role as Dean Winchester on the CW fantasy series Supernatural. He is also known for his roles in television as Eric Brady in Days of Our Lives, which earned him several Daytime Emmy Award nominations, as well as Alec/X5-494 more.

He's badass, charming, witty, suave, roguish, has style... drives a badass car (oh wait, that's Dean Winchester) - and he can fight. I do think I read he has some British ancestry so... let him at it.

As Dean Winchester he already has the role down pretty well, just a little adjustment with the script. I think he could do a fantastic job.

Who is Jensen ackles

Best Choice!

21 Jason Statham Jason Statham Jason Statham is an English actor. He is known for his roles in the Guy Ritchie crime films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver.

Jason Statham does all his own stunts, takes a risk to impress his fans, surely he deserves the honour of the next james bond, imagine how him playing bond would pan out, he would shoot all the baddies

A bald-headed, nails-for-teeth, Derbian playing 007? Maybe a 007 henchman, at best. I love the guy but he's the kind of guy who could barely wear a tuxedo for 2 minutes without dowsing it in gasoline, riddling it with bullets, or coating it in smoke. - BKAllmighty

I don't see him working in the role either. Certainly Craig's Bond has been the dirtiest, most out of control Bond yet. Still, you make a good point, Statham in a tux is not a good fit. - Ned964

Maybe not bond himself, but could definitely be a bond villain - judo8alex

Of-course he can... Haven't seen Furious7...?

26 Aidan Turner Aidan Turner Aiden Turner is an Irish actor best known for playing Kili in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit prequels and Ross Poldark in the 2015 BBC revival series Poldark, in which a scene involving topless reaping won him an army of female fans.

From first time I watch his role as Philip Lombard "And Then There Were None" somehow suddenly I think is "007 coming out from book", everything from his voice, face, body, gesture, etc.etc... especially when his in tux, Make me believe finally I see the bright future for 007 A.K.A James Bond potrayed... I wanna see him with a glass of martini shaken not stirred.
