James Norton looked so good in a tux in last night's debut episode of new BBC crime drama McMafia that bookies have now slashed the odds on him being named the new James Bond.
While the future of who will play the next James Bond hangs in the balance, producer Barbara Broccoli has hinted that a big change in casting is not out of the question.
While Daniel Craig is still only rumoured to be back for Bond 25, Eon Productions has three directors in the mix to take the reigns from Sam Mendes.
Just because everyone wants Daniel Craig to return as Ian Fleming's James Bond in 'Bond 25', it doesn't make it a done deal.
According to Page Six, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has all but persuaded him to play 007 for the historic 25th movie in the series. Plus, it’s said that she’s really not keen on having the likes of Tom Hiddleston – said to have been in the frame to replace Craig – picking up the Walther PPK, as he’s ‘too smug’ and ‘not tough enough’. A ‘Hollywood source’ told them: “Daniel was very pleased with how ‘Othello’ went and the great reviews.
