A news update, shaken—not stirred. Hot on the heels of the announcement that Sam Smith would be performing the next James Bond theme comes word that Tom Hardy could be the next actor to slide into the suave spy’s shoes. (Of course, we wouldn’t be upset one bit if Idris Elba snagged the role.)
It’s all very speculative, but as Entertainment Week reports, BoyleSports, an Ireland-based online betting firm is calling Hardy the clear frontrunner, placing the odds of the Bane actor snagging the role at 2/1. Idris is behind at 3/1, Damian Lewis is 7/2, and Henry Cavill is 4/1. Further down on the list is Orlando Bloom (25/1), Michael Fassbender (6/1), and Dominic West (40/1). Is David Beckham looking for a career change? The famed soccer player made the list, coming in at 250/1.
Hardy better start looking to rent a dog tux now.
