Born and raised in Leicester, England, this actor played Thorin in The Hobbit trilogy and was more recently in Ocean’s 8. He’s got the general look of Bond, but it’s hard to say if he could pull off the charm.

You’ll likely recognize this Scottish actor from the television show Game of Thrones. He played Robb Stark. While his film credentials are few, we’re thinking he’s got the skills to bring Bond to life on film.
