Will Damian Lewis Succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond?

Will Damian Lewis Succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond?

Damian Lewis is reportedly one of the favorites to succeed Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond, at least according to UK bookies.

It has been reported that the 44-year-old Homeland actor’s price has been dropped way down from outsider odds of 25/1 to being a near-favorite with odds of 3/1.

Other actors that have great odds right now are Idris Elba with 5/2, Tom Hardy with 4/1, Henry Cavill with 5/1, and Michael Fassbender with 7/1.

“This is an unprecedented gamble, as for no apparent reason we have seen bets of up to £200 [$312] on Damian Lewis being named as the next Bond. This could well be significant and might herald the end of Daniel Craig as the world’s most famous spy,” a William Hill spokesperson told THR.

    I think jude law would be a perfect james bond, as long as he fixes his hairline😸

    Daniel’s original contract was only for four films so it’s not exactly a shock that Spectre might be his last. I’d be really surprised if they went for Damian, I just don’t see it, I suspect they’ll go younger. I can’t imagine Tom Hardy or Michael Fassbender wanting to take the job at this point in their careers. Cavill very nearly got the job when they cast Craig, I believe they felt he was a little too young at the time & that was really the only reason, but now there’s the Superman thing. I like the idea of Idris, but I think they’ll go for someone slightly less well known, my money would be on someone like Sam Heughan.

    Idris Elba Anytime Anyday Anywhere

    hope not

    Henry Cavill could be a good Bond. He’s got the charm on his side. If they want to go younger for Bond he’d be good. But I don’t think he’d have the time to be both Bond and Superman.

    Keep Daniel Craig as Bond. He has grit, don’t mind kicking some ass, and not too girly or pretty just the right amount of sex appeal.

  • sky

    dear god no, wasn’t timothy Dolton enough. This role is too iconic for him.

  • Zeenie Baby

    How about none of the above? Damien is just NOOOOOOOOOO

  • Sassypants

    I love Sam Heughan in Outlander and I think he’s handsome but I don’t want to see him as Bond.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Plus he is in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

    Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz: Headed For Divorce?by Tyler Johnson at June 19, 2015 10:07 am. 0 Comments

    Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz aren’t exactly tabloid regulars, so when news of the intensely private couple pops up on the cover of a checkout-line rag, there’s reason to believe it’s legit.

    Craig and Weisz married back in 2011, and many doubted the marriage would last from day one.

    After all, Craig has a long history of cheating, and he and Weisz were both in serious relationships when they first started hooking up. (He was living with longtime girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell. She had been dating director Darren Aronofsky for nine years.)

    Now, Star magazine is reporting that karma is finally taking its toll (for Weisz, at least), as Craig has been caught sleeping around, and the couple is now living entirely separate lives.

    “They’re virtual strangers these days,” a source tells Star. “It’s like they don’t see the point anymore.”

    The insider claims that part of the problem is that Craig is currently shooting the new James Bond film Spectre, and he’s apparently hit it off with one of his female co-stars in a big way.

    “He clearly gets carried away with women he works with, and he’s taken a shine to one in particular,” says the source. “He’s lavishing attention on her.”

    Banging co-stars is a proud 007 tradition that dates back to the Connery days, but as this new flick has multiple Bond girls (Monica Bellucci, Stephanie Sigman and Naomie Harris), there’s no telling who might havec aught Daniel’s eye.

    For her part, Rachel is currently shooting a movie with Colin Firth, and while there have been no rumors of on-set hanky-panky, we’ve seen enough romantic comedies to know that Firth is exactly the man to comfort you when your husband is off shagging every skirt at MI6.
