Who Will Be the Next James Bond?

James Bond has been delighting fans ever since 1953, when Ian Fleming first debuted the iconic character in his novel Casino Royale. The British Secret Service agent would go on to be featured in 12 novels by Fleming and 2 short-story collections, before the iconic film franchise began in 1962, starting with Dr. No, which saw Sean Connery as Bond. Since then, 25 James Bond films have been released. This makes the James Bond film series the longest running film series ever, as well as the highest grossing film series of all time.

Seven actors, in total, have portrayed Bond over the years. Once one actor outgrows or departs from the role, the role is simply recast, and the film series lives on. All the actors who have played Bond are Connery, David Niven, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig. All of them fit Fleming’s physical description of Bond: slimmer build, grey-blue eyes, black hair, and a serious mouth. They also embody his personality well, portraying him as smooth, charming, cunning, and very intelligent.
