AI Portraits Imagine Different Actors as the Potential Next James Bond

AI Portrait of Potential Next James Bond

Henry Cavill

Ever since Daniel Craig hung up his hat on his role as James Bond, people have asked the same question: who will be the next 007? While there is no official word on which actor will continue the world-famous franchise, it hasn't stopped people online from submitting their top choices. To help shed light on what some of these men would look like as the suave British secret agent, photographer Alper Yesiltas used AI to create cinematic portraits of each actor.

This series of images features many big-name actors who have graced films and TV alike, such as Henry Cavill (who starred as the titular roles in Superman and The Witcher) and Idris Elba (from Luther). And although the faces of these men are recognizable to us as dapper stars, Yesiltas uses AI technology to place them in settings fit for 007 himself. Seeing Cavill and Elba, dressed in crisp dark suits and standing before moody backgrounds with a sleek car parked nearby instantly gives the feeling of seeing them in a potential movie still.

Yesiltas also brings in other actors that are commonly mentioned, including Tom Hiddleston (best known for his role as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe), Henry Golding (who caught worldwide attention in Crazy Rich Asians), and Regé-Jean Page (famous for the Bridgerton TV series). While very different in appearance and expression, all of these actors seem to embody the traits associated with James Bond, including sophistication and charm. Just as each new revamp of the series reimagines the timeless character, these portraits offer a possible preview of what kind of secret agent these men would bring to the next films.
