Every fan has their own favorite version of James Bond. The current Daniel Craig incarnation can’t last forever, and the famous spy movie franchise will likely need to find another Bond.
While speaking to The Mirror, Luke Evans revealed that he would leap at the opportunity to play 007. That iconic role has gone to several amazing actors over the decades and Evans would love to join that historic franchise.
“I think I’ve cut my teeth very well in movies I’ve done and I’ve enjoyed every second of it. It’s a phenomenal job, a phenomenal franchise, an incredible role.”
“I have to say though, it’s a daunting task for any actor to play the role after Daniel Craig. No one knows what’s happening.”
“It’s a very secretive process and it’s a wonderful role. I would jump at the chance, as would many actors in my position, so we shall see.”
“It will be an exciting casting moment for the Bond production and I wish whoever gets it the best of luck.”
Portraying James Bond comes with far more perks than simply surrounding yourself with Bond Girls, because there is an honor in receiving that role. Nothing is confirmed and we’re not even sure if Luke Evans is actually up for the part, but he is down to play the role in a heartbeat.
