Top 10 Best Actors to Become the New James Bond

The Top Ten
1 Christian Bale Christian Charles Philip Bale (born 30 January 1974) is an English actor. Known for his versatility and physical transformations for his roles, he has been a leading man in films of several genres. He has received various accolades, including an Academy Award and two Golden Globe Awards. Forbes magazine... read more

He is Welsh/British, a proven action film actor with the class and Bond-like swagger. He would make for a classic Bond - provided, of course, that he wants to give the role a try.

You can just imagine him standing up to 'M' (Ralph Fiennes) or flirting with Moneypenny (Naomie Harris), going to pick up the latest Aston Martin from Q (Ben Whishaw).

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.

2 Henry Cavill Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill is a British actor. He began his career with roles in the feature adaptations of The Count of Monte Cristo and I Capture the Castle.

He got a raw deal with Superman - reduced to a side character in a franchise that was supposed to be his own. He has to train harder than any other actor, shoot 15 hours a day while wearing that extremely uncomfortable suit, and yet not even get top billing.

He's got everything Bond needs - look, physique, age, charisma (when he is given enough to work with). He is even British (Superman is not). So please! Let him have this one! He's been unlucky for far too long.

Oh my, another great actor with a commanding presence. Come on, women still want a strong, masculine actor, and Henry is it. His acting is brilliant.

3 Hugh Jackman Hugh Michael Jackman (born October 12, 1968) is an Australian actor, producer and musician. Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters.

Would make a good Bondsman. He could redeem Aussie actor George Lazenby, who played in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" and messed up future Bond films.

Actually, Hugh was asked to play Bond in Casino Royale but turned it down.

I could see him as Bond! He has the Bond look and acting talent to do it!

4 Jon Hamm Jonathan Daniel "Jon" Hamm (born March 10, 1971) is an American actor, director, and television producer best known for playing advertising executive Don Draper for the AMC television drama series, Mad Men (2007–2015).

Sophisticated and tough, wide range, from Baby Driver to Keeping Up with the Joneses.

5 Tom Hardy Edward Thomas Hardy, CBE is an English actor and film producer. Originally a model, Hardy made his film debut in Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down.

Perfect fit for the part. A huge amount better than Jamie Bell, as Jamie is totally wrong as Bond.

Is Tom Hardy British, though? The actor definitely has to be British.

Already played an English spy in This Means War. Definitely could pull it off.

Watching Tom Hardy as James Bond - that would be an awesome day!

6 Richard Armitage
7 James McAvoy James McAvoy is a Scottish actor. He made his acting début as a teen in 1995's The Near Room and continued to make mostly television appearances until 2003, when his feature film career began and he continued to work in both areas from then on.
8 Gerard Butler
9 Michael Fassbender Michael Fassbender is a German-Irish actor of stage and screen whose career includes roles in both independent and blockbuster films, most notably; Hunger, Inglourious Basterds, Shame, X-Men: First Class, Prometheus, 12 Years a Slave, Frank, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Steve Jobs.

Totally! I like Daniel Craig as 007, but Michael Fassbender could nail this role!

10 Scott Adkins
The Contenders
11 Sam Worthington Samuel Henry John Worthington is an Australian actor. He portrayed the protagonist Jake Sully in the 2009 film Avatar; Marcus Wright in Terminator Salvation; and Perseus in Clash of the Titans and its sequel, Wrath of the Titans; before transitioning to more dramatic roles, in Everest, Hacksaw Ridge,... read more
12 Robert Pattinson Robert Douglas Thomas Pattinson is an English actor, producer, model, and musician. He started his film career by playing Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a 2005 fantasy film.

Personally, I don't like him that much, but many people would like to see him as James Bond. And you don't need much acting talent to play Bond.

13 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 is a tough, down-to-earth guy. Just my opinion, but I think he would make a splendid Bond.

Jason Statham does all his own stunts and takes risks to impress his fans. Surely he deserves the honor of being the next James Bond. Imagine him playing Bond. He would shoot all the baddies.

Of course he can. Haven't seen Furious 7?

14 Eric Bana Eric Bana is an Australian actor and comedian. He began his career in the sketch comedy series Full Frontal before gaining critical recognition in the biographical crime film Chopper.

Eric Bana is a great and multifunctional actor. He would be a fantastic fit to play 007, and he has the needed background and skills to take the chance and do great.

Eric Bana is one of my favorite actors. He is very talented and versatile. He would be a great James Bond. He looks great in action movies.

15 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 make Bond Scottish again.

He's Scottish like Sean Connery and easy on the eye.

16 Tom Hiddleston Thomas William Hiddleston is an English actor. He is best known for his role as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World.
17 Matt Damon Matthew Paige "Matt" Damon is an American actor, film producer and screenwriter. He is ranked among Forbes magazine's most bankable stars and is one of the highest-grossing actors of all time.
18 Jude Law David Jude Heyworth Law (born 29 December 1972), is an English actor. 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... read 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).

His role in 'Spy' was basically him handing MGM his resume for the role. Not sure if he'd ever actually get it, though.

19 Chris Evans Christopher Robert Evans is an American actor. Evans is best known for his superhero roles as the Marvel Comics characters Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Human Torch in Fantastic Four.
20 Chris Pine Christopher Whitelaw Pine is an American actor. He is best known for playing James T. Kirk in the Star Trek reboot film series (2009–), Will in Unstoppable (2010), Cinderella's Prince in Into the Woods (2014), Toby Howard in Hell or High Water (2016), Bernie Webber in The Finest Hours (2016), Steve... read more
21 Colin Farrell Colin James Farrell is an Irish actor. A leading man in blockbusters and independent films since the 2000s, he has received various awards and nominations, including two Golden Globe Awards and a nomination for an Academy Award.
22 Nicholas Hoult
23 Ewan McGregor Ewan Gordon McGregor OBE (born 31 March 1971) is a Scottish actor. His accolades include a Golden Globe Award and a Primetime Emmy Award. In 2013, he was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services to drama and charity... read more

The perfect revamped James Bond. I'd be his Moneypenny! Ewan could bring back some of that Sean Connery sex appeal, definitely suave and sophisticated.

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

24 Idris Elba Idrissa Akuna "Idris" Elba OBE is an English actor, producer, musician and DJ known for playing drug trafficker Stringer Bell on the HBO series The Wire, DCI John Luther on the BBC One series Luther and Nelson Mandela in the biographical film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
25 Sam Claflin
