A while back, someone emailed me suggesting that I put together a list of reasons why Edward Pattinson should be the next James Bond. I decided to take them up on it, and here’s what I came up with.

He Knows How to Dress

When it comes to fashion, Bond is definitely a trendsetter. He always knows exactly how to dress a particular situation or a mood, whether he’s in a tuxedo for a formal affair or in a bold-coloured shirt for a relaxed day out. It’s fair to say that Bond’s sartorial choices over the years have been both unique and memorable.

Now, let’s be honest. At this point in his life, Bond is probably best known for his eccentric and extravagant dress sense. He’s been known to sport bow ties, custom made suits, and even a leopard print dress. One of the best-known stories associated with Bond’s sartorial choices is from the 1960s when he often wore a shirt decorated with a large spider. The name he gave this particular look was the ‘Argyle Terror’. That’s right, the Scottish argyle pattern now feels dangerously fashionable again.

So, it’s safe to say that Bond knows how to dress and often does so with style and panache. This is a talent that he has brought throughout his long film career and it truly was an asset in the field.

He Has Good Taste In Food And Drink

Another area where Bond influences fashion is in catering. As we’ve established, he’s always been famous for his decadent food and drink. If you think about it, most of the films he’s starred in have been set in some form of restaurant or hotel setting, be it Goldfinger’s great train robbery, or the Royale-ettes’ decadent lifestyle in From Russia With Love. There’s also the matter of his trademark drink, brandy, which is always served in a generous manner.

So, if you think about it, Bond has probably tried a bit of everything when it comes to the culinary world. From foie gras to caviar, he’s sampled everything and probably enjoyed most dishes throughout his long film career. If anybody is qualified to be the next James Bond, it’s him.

He Is An Excellent Actor

Needless to say, Bond is a very talented actor. He is known for his ability to mesmerize audiences on screen with his remarkable acting skills. It’s safe to say that he has been acting for over 80 years and continues to act at a high level. This is a quality that will serve him well in the field.

It’s also important to note that most of Bond’s famous lines are either witty or come with a wonderful delivery. He’s also very good at speaking in a thick Scottish accent, which he often seems to use when portraying English villains. So, it’s clear that Bond is a highly skilled actor who is also witty and charming when speaking with people. This is a dangerous combination, especially when you think about the many amazing male actors who have played the role of James Bond over the years.

He Has A Full Theatre Career

Not only does Bond enjoy acting, but he has also truly done it all. He started acting in the 1910s and continued working in theatres throughout the next few decades. At this point in his life, he has appeared in over 50 films and still regularly appears in theatre productions. So, he is truly a Renaissance man of the stage. It’s not just a role; it’s truly who he is. This is a talent that will serve him well in his chosen field.

He Is A Family Man

Bond is a proud father and a family man. He has three children with his wife, who passed away in 2007. They had six children in all. The family often appears in the media, especially when one of the children has done something noteworthy. The children have followed in their father’s footsteps, with two of them becoming actors themselves.

It’s not just the family, either. Bond is a close friend to many other well-known faces in the industry, be it Elizabeth Taylor or Katharine Hepburn. He also has many business contacts in high places, which he often uses to his advantage. It seems that Bond’s many friends and family all help to make his life exceptionally comfortable.

So, while Bond may be best known for his extravagant fashion sense and love of food and drink, it’s clear that he also enjoys a family life and is close to those around him. This is a quality that will serve him well in the field, as the next James Bond.


There are many reasons why Edward Pattinson should be the next James Bond. He is a talented actor who has appeared in over 50 films. He is also a proud father who is a family man. He enjoys dressing extravagantly and has a taste for good food and drink. It seems that Bond is qualified in almost every area necessary to play the role of James Bond and it’s clear that he will do so with style and panache.
