The rumor that Harry Types would be the subsequent James Bond is gathering steam. Daniel’s Craig’s ultimate Bond film No Time To Die has been within the can for nearly a yr, that means EON Productions and MGM have had a considerable period of time to line up his successor. Many names have been thrown into the hat, with the present front-runner Inception, The Darkish Knight Rises and Venom star Tom Hardy. However recently, gossip has sprung up round former One Course member Harry Types.
This might be a controversial selection as Types is simply 26 and thus far has just one main film credit score in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. However Types has been hinting at a renewed focus on acting over music for a while and last week refused to rule out playing Bond.
Now British betting web site Ladbrokes has slashed the percentages of him taking the function from 100/1 to 25/1. This comes within the wake of tales apparently originating with Types’ buddies saying he’s in conferences with the Bond manufacturing staff and that it’s right down to a selection between him and one different actor.
In fact, even at 25/1 it’s nonetheless unlikely. By comparability, Hardy’s odds have dropped from 8/1 to 1/3, which virtually makes him a lock. We’re not going to get an official announcement as to who’s getting into the tuxedo till after the discharge of No Time To Die. That’s now set to hit cinemas on April 2, 2021, which leaves a very long time for gossip to construct up.
I feel Types is a bit younger and inexperienced to play Bond, but it surely may be value it merely to see individuals’s heads explode once they hear the information. I might even be very proud of Hardy as Bond, who completely has the performing chops to make the function his personal over the subsequent few years. Nonetheless, for now, Daniel Craig remains to be 007 and there’s another huge journey to bear.
