OMG - Tom Hardy Responds To Bond Rumours!
Tom Hardy opens up to MTV about the rumours that he will take over from Daniel Craig as the next James Bond!
Tom Hardy has opened up to MTV about being the hot favourite to become the next Bond when Daniel Craig retires.
According to bookies, Tom Hardy is the joint favourite to play 007, with odds slashed down to a 4/1 chance that he’ll be the next actor to play the world’s most iconic secret agent.
It follows news of the other hot pick for the role, Idris Elba, being recently dismissed by Bond author Anthony Horowitz, who said Elba was “too street” to play the super spy. Which of course is ridiculous because that would be freakin’ awesome.
Now role rival Hardy has waded in on his odds being slashed, slamming the whole idea during an interview for new Kray twins movie Legend: “Bookies favourite? That’s to do with gambling isn’t it? It’s got nothing to do with actual acting.”
Staying elusive, he adds, “look, I can’t say anything!”
Watch the video above for his full reaction to the rumours… and who he really wants to play Bond. We can guarantee it’s not who you’re expecting.
Legend hits cinemas on 9 September 2015.
