A lot of different actors have played the fictional British Secret Service agent, created by Ian Fleming, James Bond over the years.
The most recent actor to depict 007 is Daniel Craig who played the part in Casino Royal, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spector.
But last fall, it was rumoured that Craig was done with playing the iconic spy. So, with Bond 25, the 25th film in the franchise, around the corner who will take his place?
Idris Alba had many believing he had the part in the bag after he tweeted:
Tom Hiddleston‘s name was also thrown around as a possibility but now, everyone thinks Tom Hardy may be the next James Bond.
While chatting with the Daily Beast Hardy said of the part,
“You know, there’s a saying amongst us in the fraternity of acting, and in the fellowship of my peer group, that if you talk about it you’re automatically out of the race. So I can’t possibly comment on that one! If I mention it, it’s gone.”
Hm… Sounds like he’s seriously being considered but only time will tell. Maybe X-Files star Gillian Anderson still has a shot!
