Tom Hardy could be set to secure his Hollywood hearththrob status even further as the beautiful Brit has reportedly been approached by film bosses to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond. We approve!
The 36-year-old Batman villain is said to be top of the 007 casting director’s hit list once Daniel Craig and those beautiful baby blues completes his final two films as the much-loved MI6 agent. And according to The Daily Star, Tom’s talks with MGM and Sony have already begun…
“Although Craig is signed up for the next two Bond films the search for his replacement is already on”, a source told the paper. “Tom is right at the top of the wish list. He’s been approached to gauge his interest and he’s keen.”
“He’s a respected actor with a great back catalogue of films but most importantly he’s the type of guy that all men want to be like and all women want to be with. He’s perfect Bond material”, the source added.
Tom, who is also in the running to play Elton John in the biopic Rocketman, has previously expressed his interest in playing Bond, admitting: “I’d love to play Bond with Chris Nolan as director or something, it’d be awesome.”
What do we reckon? Could hunky Hardy do those tiny blue trunks justice? We already know our answer…
