With all the talk of Daniel Craig looking to step down as James Bond after SPECTRE, it looks like a new favourite may have arisen.
OK, so it’s The Mirror Newspaper reporting it, but still, we thought it was worth a look.
The paper is reporting that, should 47-year-old Craig leave, Damian Lewis, 44 and star of Homeland, Band of Brothers and Wolf Hall, is next for the 007 number.
A ‘well-placed source’ told the paper: “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.”
Recently a few actor have come around, with mixed results, including Idris Elba and Tom Hardy.
While we don’t necessarily put any faith into the source, we know that Lewis’ name has been attached to the role for quite some time.
What do you think? Is he the man for the gig?
