Who Should be The New James Bond? We Pick Our Favorites

Since Daniel Craig will no longer perform as James Bond, fans around the world began to wonder who should replace him as Agent 007. However, it must be admitted that re-casting the role could be an extremely tough nut to crack this time.

James Bond, the 007, is one of the most iconic figures in modern cinematography. It is no wonder that any new rumors or leaks about the next mission of our agent cause a lot of excitement around the world. With twenty-five, each successful, films starring this character, playing James Bond is recognized as one of the best things that an actor can do.

Soon, it will be a year since the premiere of No Time To Die . This is a good time to start discussing who should replace Daniel Craig (or maybe we get a female Bond) as this iconic character. The lifetime producer of the series, Barbara Broccoli, admitted some time ago that no real decisions regarding the role have been made.

What odds have different actors regarding the role?

  1. Henry Cavill - 3/1
  2. Rege-Jean Page - 7/2
  3. Tom Hardy - 6/1
  4. Chiwetel Ejiofor - 6/1
  5. Aidan Turner - 10/1
  6. Idris Elba - 10/1
  7. James Norton - 12/1
  8. Richard Madden - 16/1

This is a straight gamble - it is still not entirely clear in which direction the producers will go this time. Perhaps they will choose a young actor who will be able to play Bond longer or bet on a more experienced actor who will portray the agent in the final years of his career.

Or maybe we get an actor hailing from an ethnic minority? Or we finally get a woman Bond? This becomes even more and more interesting, as the creators have a lot of options, and each is considered. The ranking below was prepared based on an editorial vote. Who do we think should play James Bond?
