When Daniel Craig first emerged from the water in 2005, dripping wet and ripped, there was no doubt in our minds that this edgy new blond bond would be one of the best ever. Now, three installments later, it seems less and less likely that Craig will suit up for a fourth.
The question is not just who will be the next Bond, but what kind of Bond will he be? Craig broke the mold of talk, dark and slick James Bonds we had all become accustomed to.
Now, 8 new actors are on the shortlist for the next 007 and we definitely don't envy MGM's difficult decision.
Although another Daniel Craig Bond film isn't completely out of the question, we think there are some strong contenders for the role:
Idris Elba, 43
He plays the impulsive and edgy detective, Luther in the dark British crime drama of the same name. Although Alba believes that he is too old to play the suave secret agent, but we think he would be perfect for the part! I mean, just look into those deep, penetrating brown eyes - he knows all your secrets.
Michael Fassbender, 39
Luke Evans, 37
In 2015, GQ readers picked Welsh actor, Luke Evans to be the next Bond. He's built his career as a stage performer before breaking into Hollywood as the star of the 2010 Clash of the Titans remake. He has all of the classic Bond traits: tall, dark, handsome with 'a hint of the Devil' in him.
Charlie Hunnam, 36
Now here's a rough and ready Bond - Charlie Hunnam is well known for his role as Jackson "Jax" Teller from Sons of Anarchy. He would definitely carry Craig's torch of the rugged blond Bond.
Tom Hiddleston, 35
Oh, but those eyes...
Aidan Turner, 33
He's versatile too - just look at that cheeky grin!
James Norton, 31
Jamie Bell, 30
