Everybody wants to be the next James Bond!

2015-09-08 13:04

Los Angeles  - Tom Hardy would like to be the next James Bond.

The 37-year-old star - who's currently promoting his new movie Legend, in which he plays London gangster twins Ronald and Reginald Kray - has been linked to the role of the iconic secret agent and admitted he'd be open to replacing Daniel Craig.

Asked whether he has been approached about the part, Tom told Sky News: "I think anybody would consider doing Bond, wouldn't they?"

Meanwhile David Beckham fans want him to be the next 007.

The football icon turned his hand at acting with a cameo in short Outlaws and next year he has a part in pal Guy Ritchie's film Knights of the Roundtable and fans have even taken to social media urging David to be the next 007.

One follower tweeted: "People talking about Idris Elba. But for me, David Beckham is the perfect role to be a James Bond 007. And he is British (sic)."

While another wrote: "Wouldn't it be awesome if David Beckham be the next James Bond (sic)."

However, the 40-year-old hunk doesn't want to be one of those sports stars who rushes into a career in the movies and fails, but said he has "loved" the small roles he has had so far.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid footballer is sure he is doing well so far as a film star because Madonna's ex-husband wouldn't cast him if he "thought I was going to ruin it", but also admitted he'd "love to do more" despite not wanting to dive into roles which are "too big for me".

He added: "I would love to do more, but I can't just jump into roles that are too big for me. I want to build up my experience and see where it takes me."
