Next year, Daniel Craig will make his final appearance as 007 in the yet-untitled 25th James Bond film directed by Danny Boyle. While there have been a number of rumors about who will pick up the role, former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has endorsed Tom Hardy to be the next 007.
“I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond. I’d be happy to see him do it. You need an actor who can put a bit of wiggle into it—that’s what makes Bond,” he told the The Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine.
While it’s not clear what he means by “put a bit of wiggle into it” (perhaps that Hardy has a nice butt?), Brosnan has always been a fan of Craig as Bond.
“Daniel Craig has been an incredible Bond,” Brosnan said. “He’s very physical, he looks lethal. You genuinely believe this is someone who could kill a man.”
Yes, fans and critics alike have both enjoyed Craig’s time as Bond, but unfortunately for the actor it’s been an entirely miserable experience. Maybe Hardy would hopefully have a little more fun with it!
