Hints, rumours and now betting outlets have begun to play the guessing game at who will dawn the next 007 suit. Get the lowdown here!
A betting war is beginning to brew here – for who will be the next James Bond. BoyleSports, an online bookmaker here in Ireland, has polled a new contender to take over the franchise, following Daniel Craig’s eventual departure which may come sooner rather than later.
Hardy. Tom Hardy.
Liam Glynn of Boyle Sports said:
“The Next James Bond market has certainly come alive with all the support coming in for Tom Hardy, who is now 4/1 from 6/1 to take over from Daniel Craig.”
The news is sure to leave fans of Idris Elba shaken. It follows Tuesday’s outcry after the 007 author Anthony Horowitz told the Daily Mail that Elba is “too street”.
Elba is tied with former “Homeland” actor Damian Lewis with odds of 3/1.
Superman himself, Henry Cavill, also has substantial support, with BoyleSports slashing the odds at 4/1 — matching Tom Hardy.
So what do you all think? Hardy for Bond? Let us know!
