New James Bond actor to emerge as Daniel Craig bows out

- 1/08/2019
JAMES BOND actor to follow after Daniel Craig, continues to spring surprises as speculation continues to build. Although its still a couple of years away from any kind of official announcement on Craig’s replacement, fans are eager to see who would be chosen to fill the proverbial big shoes of the out going 007 star.

This is of course Craig’s (presumably) final outing as the iconic spy, as the lastest film in the franchise goes into production in New Year, ahead of a release on Valentine’s Day 2020. It won’t be until after that when bosses make plans for his successor - but punters have been betting on contenders nonetheless.
Hunky actors like Tom Hiddleston, James Norton, Tom Hardy and Richard Madden remain the frontrunners, although more names are joining the list further down the line.

But there is a surprising new addition to the fray, after calls earlier this year for Crazy Rich Asians and A Simple Favour star Henry Golding to take the role, he has been given very desirable odds.

The betting is already taking him as a real contender. Ladbrokes have just installed him at 20/1, as have Coral.

Well, those odds are the same as Sam Heughan, Orlando Bloom and Jack Huston.

Ahead of them all are Tom Hiddleston (6/4), James Norton (5/2), Richard Madden (5/1) and Tom Hardy (6/1).

British hunk Idris Elba remains in the frame at 8/1, despite constantly ruling himself out.

Other actors like Superman's Henry Cavill and Aidan Turner are on 16/1, while “any female” can be backed on 12/1.

Cary Fukunaga is directing the next James Bondouting with Craig, and recently spoke out about what he loves about the series.

“Over the years, you’ve seen a lot of different iterations not only of Bond but of films that have mimicked it or copied it,” he told IndieWire.

Its an interesting mix of contenders for the world's most popular spy. It will be tough to guess which actor has the likeliest chance of emerging the next James Bond.
