If you ever watched Homeland or Billions, then you know Damian Lewis is an amazing actor. And while he’s not as popular as Idris Elba or Hiddleston, he has made a name for himself on several popular TV shows.

Jamie Bell is mostly known for the movie Snowpiercer and The Adventures of Tin Tin and is relatively the least popular actor on this list of Daniel Craig replacements. However, his young age, 30, would make James Bond more relatable to a younger audience.
