Now, each time a new James Bond movies comes along, we are thinking the same thing – who would be cast in the lead role? While Daniel Craig has been undoubtedly one of the best James Bond actors we have seen, the fact that there is an increasing desire to have younger faces reprising roles of iconic protagonists is a bit telling.
