Tom Hardy is one of the front-runners to take over as James Bond 007 after Daniel Craig left the role after the 2021 film No Time To Die.
Henry Cavill, Idris Alba, and Rege Jean Page, a rising star in Brigderton, are among actors reported to play Bond.

Tom Hardy has Commented on Casting James Bond 007 Rumors
In a protracted 2017 interview with The Daily Beast, Tom addressed the persistent claims that he might take over as James Bond.
“Would you like to play James Bond? Although I’m sure they’re just sort of dreaming up any and all excellent British actors who look the part, I tend to see your name on a lot of these wish lists,” the interviewer asked the 45-year-old actor.
The Venom: Let The Carnage Begin actor responded by adding, “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.
He continues, “If I mention it, it’s gone.”
He also made a joke about the prospect of a Bond film being directed by Christopher Nolan, who also served as director of Interstellar and Inception.
Chris would be “a wonderful director” for a Bond film, according to Tom.
The British actor also revealed how eager he was for the Bond franchise to continue.
