9. Charlize Theron
If there’s one requirement to play James Bond, it’s that an actor needs to convincingly handle a supercar at dangerous speeds, preferably while dispatching bad guys with an array of firearms. So who better for the role than Charlize Theron? The South African actress has kicked ass in Atomic Blonde, playing the closest thing to a female Bond we’ve ever seen, plus she shot, swore, and drove with the best of ’em in Mad Max: Fury Road (just ask Tom Hardy), and she’ll likely be doing much of the same as the villain in Fast 8 (just ask Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson). Like Robbie, Theron has a talent for upstaging Will Smith—see The Legend of Bagger Vance and Hancock—but more importantly has remarkable acting range, whether it’s in sci-fi thrillers like Prometheus or the dark serial killer drama Monster.
