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.

Tom Hiddleston Responds to Rumors That He'll Be the Next James Bond

Tom Hiddleston is finally opening up about taking over the roles of James Bond and Doctor Who.

The 36-year-old actor stopped by Radio 1 Breakfast Show on Wednesday (March 1) to promote his upcoming film Kong: Skull Island where he put an end to the rumors that he’ll be taking over these major roles.

“Obviously it’s very flattering that people think I’m part of the conversation,” Tom said. “Neither of those two opportunities have come my way.”

Daniel Craig has starred as James Bond in the British spy franchise for almost 12 years, while Doctor Who’s Peter Capaldi recently announced that he is quitting the titular role in the franchise.

Naomie Harris Says Daniel Craig 'Could Be Back' As James Bond!

Naomie Harris is addressing the rumors that Daniel Craig may not return as James Bond.

“I really don’t think that they’ve moved on from Daniel,” the Oscar-nominated actress expressed (via BBC) after being made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth II at the Buckingham Palace on Thursday (February 23) in London, England.

“I think there’s a very good chance that Daniel will come back. I think it’s way too early to be thinking about other people at this stage,” Naomie added. “I think the fact that the last two Bonds – Spectre and Skyfall – have been the highest-grossing Bond movies of all time shows that people love him as Bond, and they desperately want him to return. And I don’t think Daniel is immune to that… I think he’s very aware, so I think that adds an extra level of pressure. But he has to ultimately do what feels right to him.”

“But I know that we, as a cast, collectively want him back” Naomie continued. “I know that Barbara and Michael – our producers – desperately want him back, so I think the only person that needs persuading is Daniel.”

Naomie has starred in both Spectre and Skyfall with Daniel.

Tom Hardy Doesn't Want to Talk James Bond Rumors For This Specific Reason!

Tom Hardy‘s name has been thrown out as one actor who could possibly take over the role of James Bond from Daniel Craig should he choose to officially move on from the 007 franchise.

During an interview with Daily Beast, the 39-year-old actor was first asked if he would want to do a Christopher Nolan-directed 007 film with Michael Fassbender as the villain.

“Oh, wow, Chris would be amazing! Wow, that would be cool. That would be so cool,” he said.

Then, Tom was asked if he wanted to play James Bond – and it seems like he really does!

“You know, there’s a saying amongst us in the fraternity of acting, and in the fellowship of my peer group, that if you talk about it you’re automatically out of the race. So I can’t possibly comment on that one! If I mention it, it’s gone. But Chris Nolan, what a fantastic director for a Bond movie,” Tom said. “Because Daniel [Craig] is so good, and what [Sam] Mendes and Barbara [Broccoli] have done has been so impressive, that it would be a very hard reimagination to follow after. I wonder what the next installment of that franchise would become, and I think when you mention someone like Christopher Nolan, that’s a very powerful figure to bring into that world who could bring something new and create something profound—again.”

Daniel Craig Would Miss Bond 'Terribly' if He Left the Franchise

Daniel Craig sits on a panel held during the 2016 New Yorker Festival on Friday (October 7) at the MasterCard Stage at SVA Theatre in New York City.

The 48-year-old actor was asked about the comments he made about not wanting to play James Bond again and he implied he actually would like to continue with the franchise.

“When asked 20 feet from the end of the marathon, ‘Will you do another marathon?’ the answer is simple. It’s like, ‘No, I won’t,’” Daniel said. “The things I get to do on a Bond movie, the type of work it is, there is no other job like it. There is just no other job like it. If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly.”
