After “Spectre,” the entertainment industry has been on the hunt for who they think would suffice as the new James Bond. Is it going to be Tom Hiddleston? How about Aidan Turner?
There is no shortage of handsome men that can take Craig’s role. The choice range from “Dracula’s” Oliver Jackson-Cohen, “Mad Max: Fury Road’s” Tom Hardy, “Avengers’” Tom Hiddleston, and “Thor’s” Idris Elba. There’s even “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice’s” Henry Cavil. With such a strong and interesting lineup, anyone can do!
During an interview with Fox 5 to discuss his latest film “I Saw the Light,” Tom Hiddleston was asked as to whether he has been considered as a candidate to fill the role of James Bond. Hiddleston said it’s too soon to tell.
“It’s one of those things, I think with ‘Bond,’ it’s hubristic to comment on it until one is invited,” he said.
However, as reported by Movie News Guide, Aidan Turner is a strong contender. Reportedly, he has already flown to LA to meet with Bond producers!
Turner first earned recognition for his acting abilities in “Poldark,” the acclaimed television series currently on its second season. Turner was said to have been summoned by Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson after he finished shooting for “Poldark’s” second season.
Of course, nothing is set in stone until some official announcement has been made. Will Tom Hiddleston land the “James Bond” role? Is Aidan Turner the most suitable choice as 007?
