The role of James Bond is often seen as a career-booster, so it is not suprising we don't see in this list actors such as Will Smith or Denzel Washington, who are already famous.
But most of all, this list features only US actors, whereas for the public, James Bond is a British icon from the MI6, so many reason that James Bond should remain portrayed by a British actor. Still, there are great black British actors who should be considered, or why not start a new franchise with a CIA agent?
