Tom Hardy Favourite to be Next Bond

by Glenn Baird - August 18, 2017

Despite confirmation that Daniel Craig will continue in his role as James Bond for a fifth and final time, the rumours and the odds on who will replace him have gone nowhere.

Craig’s decision to reprise the role came as something of surprise given his forthright declaration that he’d, “rather break this glass and slash my wrists” than star in the next instalment of the 007 franchise.

The rumoured £100 million that Craig has been offered to return as Britain’s most famous spy will have played a massive part in changing his mind and despite his change of heart there is already a clear favourite to take over from Craig once he finally hangs up his cocktail glass and bow-tie.

The rough and ready approach that made Craig, arguably the most popular Bond ever, an instant favourite with audiences suggests a similar line of thought with Tom Hardy leading the way at odds of 4-1.

Hardy has all the credentials to make him the favourite to replace Craig, whilst those who question Hardy’s desire to fill the role need to remember just how enormous the pay day could be for him.

Other names being mentioned include Jack Huston, at 9-2, with both Aidan Turner and Idris Elba at 7-1 and both Tom Hiddleston and James Norton at 8-1.

However, Dr Who, another British institution created a stir earlier this year when it was announced that the new Dr would be a woman. An apparent game changer for the show, the decision to break with tradition means that bookmakers are prepared for an unexpected Mrs Bond by offering odds of 33-1 on Gillian Anderson becoming Britain’s most loved spy.

Drag yourself down to the bottom of the betting page and you’ll be treated to all sorts of ridiculous possibilities at equally outrageous odds. Although perhaps the most ridiculous and outrageous has to be having David Walliams alongside Brad Pitt at 200-1.

Whoever does take on the iconic role should stop and listen to Craig’s inspiring advice for the actor or actress that will eventually replace him:

“Don’t be shit. You’ve got to step up. People do not make movies like this any more. This is really rare now. So don’t be shit.”
