Jack Huston to Replace Daniel Craig in James Bond Movies?

Jack Huston to Replace Daniel Craig in James Bond Movies?

A new report claims that Jack Huston is the name at the top of the list to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond should he no longer want the role.

The 34-year-old Ben-Hur actor is apparently a favorite of producer Barbara Broccoli, but she’s “absolutely keen on having a black actor playing Bond” too,” according to the Daily Mail.

There have been rumors that Idris Elba might step into the iconic role, but this report claims he’s too big of name now.

“It’s just finding the actor,” a source told the site. “In fact, she doesn’t care what colour he is. Black, brown or white. She just wants a great actor.”

Meanwhile, Daniel is still “keener to do it than not.”

Screenwriters Robert Wade and Neil Purvis are writing the script for the untitled film, reportedly known as Bond 25. Filming won’t begin until next fall.

    Typical DM article. No one knows anything, they’re just throwing some names around.

    I’d personally vote for Tom Hardy ^^.

    I really like Jack Huston, but I do not think he is a strong enough actor to carry multiple Bond films.

    No one can say Jack wouldn’t be good Bond because unless any of us watch a screen test we just don’t know. Most people weren’t on board with Daniel Craig right up until the release of Casino Royale. It’s ok everyone saying this person should do it or that person, but they have to want to take on that franchise. I don’t see Tom Hardy wanting to do that, he seems to be having far too much fun jumping from job to job and Taboo just got picked up for a second series. Plus he’s had a lot of success, an Oscar nomination. I think he’s perhaps too successful for the franchise, that’s quite out of character for the casting. Someone like Jack Huston, Charlie Hunnam (my person pick, and clearly no franchise adverse after originally taking 50 Shades), James Norton etc, who’s had some success, but nothing massive, is much more likely. It’s what the Broccoli’s have always done, picked a name that rings a bell but never huge Global recognition, none of the previous actors were huge before they got the part.
    Kudos to his publicist tho because getting his name out there with the Bond tag can work wonders for a profile

    James Norton would make a great Bond.

  • Do Tell

    I really wish they would pick someone who is relatively unknown. Tall, handsome, but not too pretty and with something unique in his facial features. Rugged somewhat (strong), but not big muscles. Brosnan was always too skinny-looking for me. Connery was perfect. I also really liked Timothy Dalton. Definitely a man with dark hair–not blond.

    I wish I could choose a James Bond. I’d scout the globe and find the perfect man for that role.

    He doesnt have this sexy confidence every Bond needs. His nose is cute and pretty, but it’s not James Bond nose.

  • david moodie

    Hard to beat Daniel Craig and the producers know that. He is a great actor and will bring in more cash than a new person.

  • LolaLola

    Charlie Hunnam would make an awesome Bond. He’s gorgeous and talented and smoking hot. Sex on legs.

  • j k

    What kind of name is Barbara Broccoli

  • Angeline cohl

    Ms. Barabara Broccoli …. IF somebody that knows you sees this….PLEASE have a CLOSE look at Charlie Hunnam or Theo James. U will understand…

  • shoes4life

    Bring back Daniel Craig!

  • FlakesofSunlite

    I think this is justice being served.

  • Shelby

    No way. Not even close.

    Word to the wise: The new James Bond is Francois Arnaud not Jack Huston. Spread the word. Dear JJ, Your Welcome in advance.

  • Sonia

    NOOOOO

  • Do Tell

    I looked FA up… and no no no.

    What about Richard Armitage. He’s Thorin in The Hobbit films. Masculine, nice voice for Bond. Handsome, but not pretty. He could look like an agent very well. I think he has the look.

  • Blair Waldorf

    Pretty sure Craig has 1 more Bond film left in his contract. So any rumors about who’s replacing him (in the next film anyway) is BS.
    I’m sure when he’s really done with Bind, we’ll all know.

  • Truth

    No, please, no. No just no.

  • Amber

    He’s no Idris Elba.

  • Maximilian

    Ed Skrein..he totally fits that description..He’d be a great bond! Not too famous, talented and very expressive facial structure..

  • deacc

    Who? No thanks. Either Tom Hardy or Tom Hiddleston pls.

  • Do Tell

    Oh yes, he’s a good one too. Plus he is young, so he would have many years in the role. He has a nice build and he’s handsome, but in a masculine way. Masculinity is a must for James Bond.

  • Robert

    All romours is going on their… but i dont think daniel will be replaced in bond series till two more movies… because he is perfect for spy characters, he is smart, good looking, young enough to perform and shoot as James bond…

  • Century SAM

    He played a phenomenal character named Richard Harrow in ‘Boardwalk Empire’. Although he may not be the best choice for Bond you should really checkout ‘Boardwalk Empire’ to see how great of an actor he really is.
