Perfect New James Bond (Who Is Not Henry Cavill) Won't Let You Accept Any Other 007
And it is not Idris Elba or Tom Hiddleston, either.
- The debate about who should take the place of the new James Bond has been going on for a long time, with Henry Cavill, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba being the most likely candidates.
- However, the actor almost no one talked about, Theo James, has everything it takes to be a new agent 007.
James Bond is a Time Lord just like Doctor Who. How else can you explain why he hasn't aged in 70 years and keeps changing his face? His role has been played by seven different actors. The latest Bond, Daniel Craig, refused to renew his contract, even for fabulous sums, so the world needs a new agent 007.
There are more and more versions about what exactly the new James Bond should be. Previously, there have been many discussions about the fact that there should be no over-the-top masculinity and toxicity of Agent 007 that was exuded by Sean Connery, who despite everything is still loved by many.
What Should a New James Bond Look Like?
Apparently, the producers are counting on a long screen life for Britain's new servant, so the actor's mature age may prove to be a significant obstacle. It is quite possible that this was the reason why 42-year-old Sam Heughan's candidacy was rejected.
The showrunners need someone who can star in three movies, just like Craig, who took on the role at the age of 38. So Tom Hardy and Idris Elba, who according to the polls many would like to see in an honorary role, have no chance. And the 40-year-old Henry Cavill is also walking a very fine line.
But you've already heard about Idris Elba and Henry Cavill and Tom Hardy, and everyone's already tired of rumors that these actors are being considered for the role of the new Agent 007.
Theo James Should Be the New Agent 007
That's why we brought you something that few people have thought about. Well, some people still thought about it, because when you see this actor, it's impossible not to imagine him in a suit sipping a martini.
Ladies and gentlemen, here he is, out perfect Bond – Theo James. The actor, who recently received his fair share of public love after his role in the acclaimed The White Lotus, has been working on the periphery for a long time, starring in franchises like Divergent and playing romantic roles, but most importantly, he has done it all equally well.
In addition, Theo only needed one episode of Downton Abbey to drive the prim English family crazy and didn't let them forget about him for all 7 seasons.
It is undeniable that Theo has the classic Bond charm and is also in line with the above producers' requirements. And let's just face it, he's got what it takes to win.
