Will Damian Lewis Succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond?
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.
“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.
