The search for the next James Bond is still on, as reports claim that top choices to replace Daniel Craig for the role include Theo James, Tom Hiddleston and Jamie Bell. As the “Divergent” actor is vying for a new role in the movie industry, will James star opposite “Game of Thrones” actress, Emilia Clarke?
Theo James has been reportedly confirmed as the new James Bond, replacing Daniel Craig from the highly coveted role, according to The Portly Gazelle. James reportedly held a press conference of Sunday to confirm rumors that he will be playing the role of Agent 007 for three installment of the popular franchise.
During the said press conference, the 31-year-old actor recounted how he landed the role of James Bond for the upcoming installments. James explained that he has always dreamed of becoming the next James Bond ever since he was a child.
James’ first appearance as the new James Bond will reportedly be released in 2017 and filming will begin in August. However, the aforementioned report appears to be unconfirmed as of writing, as several reports suggest that there has been no official confirmation yet as to which actor will be playing the role of James Bond.
Theo James will be competing with other actors such as Tom Hiddleston and Jamie Bell for the highly coveted role. There is also some tough competition in the search for Jane Bond.
If Theo James will be chosen as the new James Bond, however, there is a high chance that fans will see him star next to Emilia Clarke. According to Independent, the “Game of Thrones” actress recently expressed her interest in playing the role of Jane Bond.
Clarke explained that one of her unrealized dreams is playing the role of Jane Bond. It would, therefore, be a great opportunity for her to land that role in order to break away from her famous character in “GOT.”
Do you think Theo James would be perfect as the next James Bond? Should Emilia Clarke be chosen as Jane Bond? Sound off in the comments!
