Next Bond Possibilities: Star “Who Screen Tested for 007” Gains Over Henry Cavill and Tom Hardy | Movies | entertainment

It’s been over a year since Daniel Craig walked out on the James Bond film series, and speculation about who could get the next license to kill is still rife. Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson have explained that production on Bond 26 is still two years away and that they are looking for a male actor to reboot the franchise. The bookies’ odds are dominated by megastars like Henry Cavill and Tom Hardy, but they could face a challenge from another contender that has popped up.

According to William Hill, Aaron Taylor-Johnson entered the race at odds of 10-1 to replace Craig as Bond. The 32-year-old rose to fame starring in the comic book movies Kick-Ass and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Most recently, he co-starred with Brad Pitt in the action comedy Bullet Train. The actor, who played John Lennon and auditioned to portray Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic, is married to 55-year-old director Sam Taylor-Johnson.

His surprise appearance in the race follows a new report that allegedly impressed producers on 007’s screen test.

Taylor Johnson leads 10-1 with Michael Fassbender and leads them directly ahead of Richard Madden at 9-1. Dan Stevens and Jack Lowden go 8-1, Chiwetel Ejiofor goes 7-1, and Tom Hardy and James Norton each go 6-1. In second place came Reggie Jean Page, with a score of 4-1, and remains the favorite for Superman star Henry Cavill, with a score of 5-6.
