It’s been revealed that Tom Hardy is still the odds-on favourite to be named as the next James Bond after Daniel Craig. This news comes to us via The Express who’ve been told this information by the bookies in the UK.
There’s been a lot of talk about who’ll be the next Bond. No Time To Die will be Daniel Craig’s last outing as the British secret agent, so it’s no wonder that people are desperate to know who’ll replace him.
There’s recently been a new name in the ring in Bridgerton star, Regé-Jean Paige, and I do like the idea of him playing the spy. However, one of the names often connected to the role is Tom Hardy, and I’ve been on the record saying that he would be excellent.
Tom Hardy is still the favourite to be the next James Bond
According to The Express, one of the UK bookmakers, Coral have now got Tom Hardy as their odds-on favourite to be the next Bond. He’s now at 4-5 (down from 9-4) to be the next James Bond. They had James Norton in second position, which odds of 5-2, Idris Elba is 7-2, while René-Jean Page is 5-1.
A spokesperson told Express: “Tom Hardy is in the driving seat to replace Daniel Craig as the next 007 according to our betting. The talented actor has been linked with the role for a number of years now and the latest odds indicate we will see Hardy take up the challenge in the near future.”
