Tom Hardy Doesn’t Want To Play James Bond. Unless He Does

No one knows who the next James Bond is. There were talks that it could be Idris Elba, then Tom Hiddleston became the favorite, and now we can throw Tom Hardy’s name into the mix.

Speaking to The Daily Beast:

“You know, there’s a saying amongst us in the fraternity of acting, and in the fellowship of my peer group, that if you talk about it, you’re automatically out of the race. So I can’t possibly comment on that one! If I mention it, it’s gone.”

Is that how it works? Man, I’ve been doing it wrong for so many years.

“But Chris Nolan, what a fantastic director for a Bond movie. Because Daniel [Craig] is so good, and what [Sam] Mendes and Barbara [Broccoli] have done has been so impressive, that it would be a very hard reimagination to follow after. I wonder what the next installment of that franchise would become, and I think when you mention someone like Christopher Nolan, that’s a very powerful figure to bring into that world who could bring something new and create something profound—again.”

Great job, Tom. You just mentioned Christopher Nolan for the directing job, now he’s out of the race.

A Tom Hardy and Christopher Nolan duo would be great for the Bond universe. As long as it’s not Tom Hiddleston. He’ll play Bond and think he cured AIDs after doctors watch the movie.
