Orlando Bloom Would Love To Play James Bond
How would Bloom play it, if he had the chance?
Tom Hiddleston? Idris Elba? Harry Styles? There are already plenty of names in the hat for who should replace Daniel Craig as James Bond, but Orlando Bloom just threw his in there too, revealing that he would love the chance to play 007.
“I grew up loving those films,” said Bloom. “Who didn't? I'm sure they'll probably do more with Daniel, and who knows where they'll go with that? That franchise is a part of the fabric of our society, isn't it? It's something that people really relate to, and laugh and enjoy. That little wink and twinkling behind the eyes is what I always saw in Sean Connery and Roger Moore.”
So how would Bloom play it, if he had the chance? “I love what Daniel Craig did - muscular, dynamic. I think there's a combination of all of that that's really interesting. I think (I’d) be very English, but that sort of twinkle with the muscular dynamic. Who knows? They could do a woman, the world that we live in today. Who knows where they'll go with it? I don't know, but I do love that world. Who doesn't?”
The campaign starts here… In the meantime, you can look forward to Orlando doing his thing in another mega-franchise when Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge hits our screens on 26 May 2017.
