The Name’s Hardy, Tom Hardy

Next James Bond

Outright Betting

The Next James Bond betting has been shaken and stirred after Tom Hardy alluded to the fact that he is interested in replacing Daniel Craig as 007.

Implying that if actors want a role, they’re better off keeping coy, Hardy refused to comment on whether he would be interested in the role of James Bond, sparking a speculation frenzy that he has thrown his name into the hat.

As a result we’ve been forced to drastically cut Hardy into the new 7/4 favourite from 4/1 to be the next James Bond.

The Dark Knight star has also come out in expressing his desire to see director Christopher Nolan direct the next Bond flick, for which we make it odds on at 1/2.

Happy Valley star James Norton is next in the betting with Idris Elba third in the betting at 9/4 with Aidan Turner priced at 10/3.

Michael Fassbender and Colin Farrell remain in the running, but at the much larger price of 20/1 and 50/1 respectively.
