According to the rumors making the rounds in the prairies of Hollywood, Tom Hiddleston will soon be sporting super cool gadgets and chic cars as Agent 007, thanks to his new found love, singer Taylor Swift.
Recently, images of the two kissing and cuddling each other on a Rhode Island beach, only a fortnight after Swift broke up with former boyfriend and DJ Calvin Harris, went viral over the internet. Fans went berserk over the newest development, sparking off a slew of rumors.
According to Hollywood Life, Hiddleston’s association with Swift is likely to land him in James Bond’s shoes. To bag the role of the quintessential Bond, Hiddleston needed to be in the spotlight, and to be seen with Swift does increase his chances of appearing in gossips and rumours more often. Though he himself is a highly acclaimed actor, so far lead role has been out of his reach.
“Tom is making a huge power play dating Taylor in his quest to be the next James Bond,” The Hollywood Life quoted a source as saying. “Producers are desperate for the next Bond to be a universal name that will boost the brand worldwide, especially in America.”
The source added, “Tom’s not silly. He knows by hooking up with Taylor he will give himself the best opportunity in securing the part. After all, a romance with arguably the biggest pop star on the planet will guarantee you huge coverage and that can only strengthen his hand in getting the role.”
The report added that with his new romance with Swift, Hiddleston will be the heavy favorite to become the next James Bond. He is expected to edge Aidan Turner, Idris Elba and Tom Hardy, who are also being considered for the Agent 007 role.
Apparently, Hiddleston chose to woo his lady love with flowers, the old fashioned way, and this worked really well for him, the Telegraph reported. His CV too is quite impressive. Besides being mooted as a prime contender for the James Bond movies, he has films like The Avengers series, Thor: The Dark World and Coriolanus and the Night Manager, to name a few, to his credit.
