Who Is The Next 007?

We take a look at the 8 actors in the running to take over from Daniel Craig and play the next James Bond. We are officially in 00-heaven

Everyone’s favourite spy Daniel Craig may be hanging up his 007 designer suits. The 48 year old has played the roll of James Bond since 2005 for four films. But rumours are rife that Spectre may have been his last.

MGM Studios have released a list of the 8 actors in the running to take over the world famous spy role, seemingly marking Craig’s exit.

But who is on the list? And who do we want to win the renown role?

Mr Taylor Swift has been thrust into the limelight of late thanks to his superstar girlfriend. Producers are apparently worried what his new couple status will bring to the role, but none the less, he is a contender.

Set to star in the new adaptation of Beauty and The Beast alongside Emma Watson next year, Evans is set to hit the big time. Will he be the next 007?

Arguably one of the most well known and successful actors from the list, Fassbender is well experienced in starring in blockbusters. He is also dating Oscar winner Alicia Vikander who is worthy of the Mrs Bond title.

Luther hunk Elda has previously  denied being in for the running to play Bond due to his age. But on the list he is. Was his denial just an attempt to throw us off the scent?

Charlie Hunnam

The Sons of Anarchy actor famously turned down the role to play Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey. Could that decision have been the best of his career? Time will tell…

Long term Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is said to be meeting with the Billy Elliot star. And she has the final say on casting.. Watch this space.

The 31 year old British star is well known on the small screen after starring in Happy Valley and War and Peace. We for one would love to see him on the big screen.

The Hobbit and Poldark actor would surely bring some Irish charm to the 007 role. Bond with dark curly hair anyone? Yes we like it too.

A poll by Look readers said they wanted Idris Elda to take over the role. Closely followed by Charlie Hunnam and Michael Fassbender in joint second place, Luke Evans in third.
