Without doubt, the role of James Bond is one of the most sort after roles in the movie business, and now that Daniel Craig has said that this will be his final stint as 007, the question is, who will play him next?
Here’s our top 5 list of potential 007’s:
As well as the big screen, Tom has been a regular on TV with shows like BBC’s Taboo and the hugely successful Peaky Blinders.
Tom decided not to comment on whether he would like to take the role, but you can’t help but think this all around good guy and family man would be a perfect fit to replace Daniel Craig.
From day one, Idris Elba has been linked to the Bond role, and let’s face it, it’s easy to see why.
The Londoner has a seriously impressive CV. He was outstanding in the TV series Luther, and has shown he’s fit for the big screen with his parts in The Jungle Book, Mandela and Bastille Day.
If you need an endorsement from one of Hollywood’s biggest directors, heavyweight, Steven Spielberg said that he would love to see Elba as the first “Bond of colour”.
The star has ruled himself out of the role but Bond producer Barbara Broccoli seems to think differently however. She is spear-heading a campaign within the British film industry, to to increase diversity – which in our books says that it’s a sign that eventually, Bond will expand beyond its white, male history in future instalments of the franchise.
He also knows his way around the big screen as well, and his Hollywood cred was built from roles in the BBC’s 2016 War and Peace, and a lead role in 2017’s Flatliners.
Now, when you add the fact that he donned a tux in his latest role as Alex Godman in McMafia, many think that Norton could be a perfect fit for the role of 007.
Hunky Jack has gained a legion of fans over the last few years, and was a huge hit on the big screen in 2016 hit Ben Hur.
You’ll have also seen the British actor in roles for The Longest Ride, American Hustle and the infamous vampire tween hit, The Twilight Saga.
Jack has some serious Hollywood pedigree also. His great-grandfather was legendary star Walter Huston, his grandfather was John Huston, director of classics such as The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and The Maltese Falcon.
Starting his career on the stage, Aiden made the switch to the big screen and became a star through The Hobbit trilogy.
Bookmakers have long fancied Aiden as a front runner for the Bond role, but Aiden himself has refused to comment. Mmmm…
Recently, he has been to back to playing the role of Captain Ross, but all bets could be off if Aiden gets the call, that’s for sure.
