Tom Hiddleston has joined the long list of actors, who could possibly take on the role of Agent 007 and could portray the legendary character in the next James Bond movie.
The British actor’s huge break came after he was selected to portray the role of Loki in Marvel’s superhero series and now it seems like the might jump from the role of an anti-hero to the role of one of the most famous heroes of all times – James Bond.
Daniel Craig, the actor, who has portrayed Bond in the past four movies about the iconic secret agent (Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre), made a shocking statement a while ago that left everybody in eagerness regarding the future of Agent 007. Craig said that he’s so fed up with playing James Bond that he would rather “slash his wrists” and that if he ever did shoot another movie about the same character it would be just because of the money.
The next screen adaptation of 007’s adventures has been announced. The title is Bond 25, but the plot and the cast are yet to be revealed. And while Craig is rumored to take up the role once again, fans from all over the world have already started publishing their dream casts all over the web. Time Magazine also published a list of actors that would make an amazing James Bond and Tom Hiddelston is among them. The 35 year old actor can play an antagonist and apparently, people are convinced he can also portray the protagonist as well. Hiddelston himself stated that portraying such a role would be “an extraordinary opportunity” for him if that chance ever came along and that he would not take it lightly. Apart from Tom, Henry Cavill, Aiden Turner, Damian Lewis and Tom Hardy are among the fans’ favorite top choices.
Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.
