From Tom Hiddleston To Henry Cavill: 5 Actors On Potentially Playing James Bond

The iconic role of James Bond has been synonymous with suavity, sophistication, and action-packed thrills for decades.

With Daniel Craig stepping down from the role after his last outing in “No Time to Die,” speculation has been rife about who will step into the shoes of the legendary British spy. It was reported that actor Aaron Taylor Johnson was in talks about playing the role but he wasn’t the only fan-favourite to take on the iconic character.

Among the top contenders are Henry Cavill, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hiddleston, Jamie Dornan, and Harry Styles, each bringing their own unique charm and skill set to the table. Let’s delve into why each actor could be a suitable choice, and how they’ve responded to the swirling rumours.

Known for his portrayal of Superman in the DC Extended Universe and his charismatic performance in “The Witcher,” Henry Cavill has long been a fan favourite for the role of James Bond. With his dashing looks, impeccable physique, and acting chops, Cavill embodies the quintessential British gentleman spy.

When asked about the possibility of donning the iconic tuxedo, Cavill has expressed his interest, stating that he would relish the opportunity to bring his own interpretation to the character while staying true to Bond’s legacy of sophistication and action. However, in an article from CBR, Cavill admitted that it’s unlikely that he’ll play James Bond. Additionally, his age reduces his chances of playing Bond as the “James Bond” franchise creators are looking for someone younger to succeed Craig.

2. Cillian Murphy

Renowned for his intense performance in “Peaky Blinders” and “Inception,” Cillian possesses a brooding intensity and undeniable charisma that could breathe new life into the character of James Bond. Cillian’s ability to portray complex characters with depth and nuance makes him a compelling choice for the role. Based on the 007 former actor, Pierce Brosnan told BBC that, “Cillian would do a magnificent job as James Bond.” However, Cillian didn’t agree and said, “I think I’m a bit old for that.“

3. Tom Hiddleston

Best known for his portrayal of Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom Hiddleston exudes charm, sophistication, and a hint of danger—qualities that are synonymous with James Bond. Tom’s classical training and commanding screen presence make him a natural fit for the role. When questioned about the possibility of becoming the next 007, Tom revealed during The Happy Sad Confused podcast, that he would be scared to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.

4. Jamie Dornan

Having gained international fame for his role as Christian Grey in the “Fifty Shades” franchise, Jamie Dornan has proven himself capable of embodying the enigmatic allure and magnetism required of James Bond. Dornan’s versatility as an actor, combined with his rugged good looks, makes him a compelling choice for the iconic role. As the rumours about him replacing Daniel Craig heat up, he admitted to Total Film that he doesn’t concern himself much with the theories.


5. Harry Styles

A relative newcomer to the world of acting, Harry Styles has already made waves with his performances in films like “Dunkirk” and “Don’t Worry Darling.” With his charismatic persona, boyish charm, and undeniable star power, Styles brings a fresh and modern energy to the character of James Bond. When asked about the possibility of taking on the role with the UK’s Hits Radio, Harry replied, “Yeah, I mean, who wouldn’t? I grew up watching those. You know, I loved him when I was a kid. So I think it’s kind of everyone’s dream a little bit, right?“. However, Harry’s representatives have now said any claims of Harry being the next James Bond “aren’t even remotely true.“

In the end, the decision of who will be the next James Bond rests in the hands of the producers and casting directors, who will undoubtedly take into account factors such as acting ability, star power, and fan enthusiasm. Whether it’s Henry Cavill, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hiddleston, Jamie Dornan, Harry Styles, or another actor altogether, one thing is certain: the legacy of James Bond will continue to captivate audiences for generations to come.
