The Actor Who Will Reportedly Be the Next James Bond Has Been Revealed
Time flies and people change, but the question that will always remain the same is “Who’s gonna be the next James Bond?” It’s been on everyone’s mind since Daniel Craig talked about quitting the role. People are betting on who’ll take over, and as the decision gets closer, the rumors are getting louder. It seems like a 32-year-old British actor who’s been in movies like Angus and Perfect Snogging will soon be seen on screen in this coveted role.
There are a few hints.
There are some requirements for actors who get cast for the role of James Bond. They should all be under 40 years old.
The producer Michael G Wilson explains, “Bond isn’t some kid out of high school that you can bring in and start off. It works for a 30-something. Bond’s already a veteran. He’s had some experience.” Besides, so far, it can’t be a woman either.
We can cast off some actors.
Fans suggested lots of actors who could potentially play the next James Bond. The most popular candidate was Idris Elba. The speculation was fueled among his fans, but, in the end, the actor denied the rumors.
Another candidate — Richard Madden, hasn’t even been considered for the role. Tom Hardy is out of the question because he’s an Oscar-nominated actor and is very famous. The producers explain, “For the next 007, we’d put our money on younger, taller, less famous men.”
Aaron Taylor-Johnson will most likely replace Daniel Craig.
Aaron did a screen test for the role in September and producers loved him. They called him “one of the front-runners.” What’s more, an anonymous source stated that Aaron Taylor-Johnson will be the next Bond, and that a “mini-trailer with his participation is going to be released soon to announce him as the new actor.”
He already starred in the famous scene.
In December, Aaron filmed the iconic scene, as the secret agent, that has appeared in the franchise for many years. Aaron’s performance in the scene left a lasting impression on the producers, who were considering offering him a deal. “Bosses at the brand were really impressed with his unique blend of acting intensity and his impressive back catalog of action films.”
The actor addressed the rumors.
In a recent interview, Aaron was asked if he’d be the next James Bond. The actor didn’t give a definite answer, keeping up the mystery.
He said, “It’s flattering. You can have something really positive written about you, but you can also have something really negative that can circulate. You just want to stay in your lane, stay grounded, stay around the people that you love and love you back, and stay in that world. Because the moment you start believing the things people say about you, you’ve lost it.”
