Tom Hiddleston as James Bond? He's Open to Playing the Role!

With Daniel Craig‘s future in the James Bond franchise still in question, there is buzz over who could possibly take over the coveted role.

Tom Hiddleston was just asked by the Sunday Times if he would be open to playing the action hero.

“I simply love the theme tune, the tropes and the mythology,” Tom told the paper. “I love the whole thing. If it ever came knocking, it would be an extraordinary opportunity. And I’m very aware of the physicality of the job. I would not take it lightly.”

DO YOU THINK Tom Hiddleston should play James Bond?

    He’s British, has the build, looks and is the proper age in he’s thirties, to be the start new Bond.

    He would be a great and doesn’t mind all the interviews and promotion , which is major part for a role like this.

    still think Idris would be a great fit for the role, sexy, right age, suave and a great actor :)

    Don’t get me wrong, i love Tom Hiddleston as an actor, and i especially love him as Loki, but he just doesn’t have that sexy charm that is expected from an actor playing James Bond. If i were to choose the next one, i would choose Henry Cavill because he has that sexy charm with tounge in cheek personality as shown in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. last year, which i thought was a great indication of who the next Bond should be, the movie felt like a test to see if Henry was able to achieve what is needed, and i think he succeeded.

    if they not consider the age i will vote to Idris .. otherwise i think Henry Cavill would be a brilliant choice

    Wow, he would be perfect as Bond!

  • FerCat

    If it’s going to be a lighter, less somber version of Bond, then I’m okay with this.

  • Do Tell

    I’d watch him. He’s tall and handsome. He has mystery behind his eyes and I believe he could pull it off well because he is a great actor.

  • Do Tell

    I think Cavill is too thick & muscular. He’s not suave or debonair. He has a handsome face, tho. There have also been rumors re his sexuality. If he is gay, I think it would detract from his popularity with female movie goers.

  • Eathan Crane

    I think Tom is too thin. Daniel Craig was also muscular. And Henry can always lose the muscles for the role, like he did in Man from UNCLE where he filled those suits rather well. I don’t even want to comment on the gay thing. Every actor has those gay stories behind him.

    Also, Tom doesn’t have the Bond face, he has has a bad guys face. He would be great as a Bond villain.

    I’m rooting for Henry Cavill because i think he would be perfect for that role, but i think him playing Superman will kill any chances of him being cast as James Bond. They will choose someone who’s not as famous or tied with a famous franchise, so i think Tom will not get the part either considering he’s part of the Marvel universe as Loki and he hasn’t finished with that franchise.

  • Anna

    I vote Idris or Henry as well. I adore Tom but I just don’t see him as bond.

  • Gina

    Idris is THE man for the job.

  • Do Tell

    I’m one of the fans who was never happy with Craig. It was bad enough that he was a blond. I still watched the movies, but only because I like Bond films, not for Craig.

    I think Craig has muscles, but his frame is smaller…. similar to the way Jason Statham looks. I like the tall, slimmer build with longer legs that Connery had.

  • Do Tell

    He has good skin and would look dapper in his suits. I really find him to be attractive. I love his eyes.

  • Kris

    OMG… YES pleaseee!!!
