“IF DANIEL CRAIG LEAVES, IT’S DAMIAN LEWIS WHO WILL BE CROWNED THE NEW BOND. HE IS SEEN AS AN ALL-ROUND INTERNATIONAL STAR WHO IS PERFECT FOR THE ROLE. AS HE AGES, HE LOOKS INCREASINGLY SUAVE AND SOPHISTICATED,” A SOURCE WAS QUOTED AS SAYING. DANIEL CRAIG, 47, HAS ALREADY HINTED HE IS READY TO STEP DOWN AFTER THE RELEASE OF SPECTRE IN NOVEMBER
The ‘Idris Elba for Bond’ clamour could be quieted shortly. Homeland star Damian Lewis has apparently been given ‘an unofficial nod’ as the primary pick for 007 if Daniel Craig, that has played with the British secret agent in four movies, stops the franchise.
He could be viewed as an allround international star who’s ideal for the part. As he ages, he seems increasingly suave and sophisticated.”
44, Damian Lewis, won a Golden Globe as well as an Emmy because of his portrayal of US marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody in Fatherland.
Luther star Idris Elba has been with supporters lobbying to be cast as the very first black 007, at the head of a set of possible future Bonds.
Writer Anthony Horowitz, writer of a fresh Bond novel, evoked an outcry last month after blowing off Idris Elba as “overly road” to play the suave secret agent. The names of Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy have cropped up and the voice supporting the theme for next Bond movie SPECTRE, vocalist Sam Smith, has decided on footballer David Beckham as a potential successor.
Yet, according to the Mirror report, ‘Bond managers are actually convinced Damian is their guy.’
47, Daniel Craig, has suggested he’s prepared to step down in November following the launch of SPECTRE.
Yet, in accordance with the sources of Mirror, Daniel may be offered a sum impossible to will not stay on for more martinis shaken rather than stirred if SPECTRE does good.
Pierce Brosnan, who played with Bond from 1994 to 2005 before Daniel, supposed that any new 007 would have been a white man, consistent with all the initial novel character made by novelist Ian Fleming. The performer told the Press Association, “Anything is possible for certain, but I believe he will be male and he will be white.”
Meanwhile, SPECTRE will release worldwide on November 6.
