According to reports, producers have their eye on the Emily in Paris actor.

The actor, 30, is reportedly being considered for the role of 007, after a series of television roles including most recently, Emily in Paris.

Emily in Paris' Lucien Laviscount could become the next James Bond.

According to a source, the actor is being considered by producer Barbara Broccoli.

A source told the Daily Mail: "Lucien ticks all of the boxes. He is a super talented actor, is extremely handsome and in the past 18 months has won lots of new fans since he joined Emily In Paris.

"Bond bosses are already saying how you can see him in the 007 tuxedo, how dapper and fitting to the role he will look."

Tyla has reached out to representatives for Lavinscount and Broccoli for comment.

Lucien first appeared on TV screens in Grange Hill back in 2007 before having roles in Coronation Street and Waterloo Road. He also took part in Celebrity Big Brother prior to his role in Emily in Paris.

In the Netflix show, Lucien plays Alfie - Emily's boyfriend.

According to a source, the actor is being considered by producer Barbara Broccoli.

Actors who have previously played the role of James Bond include the likes of Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery, and Timothy Dalton.

Meanwhile, it's been reported that there are a number of actors being considered for the part, including Tom Hardy and Bridgerton actor Regé-Jean Page.

Earlier this year, Aaron Taylor-Johnson became one of the favourites to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.

The Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging star entered the running alongside Henry Cavill, with his odds on William Hill standing at 10-1 back in November.

After featuring in the 2008 rom-com, the actor continued his climb to fame in 2013’s Kick-Ass, and more recently had a starring role alongside Brad Pitt in this year’s Bullet Train.

The recent surge in odds comes after rumours began to circulate that he had been called in for a screen test, with an unnamed source telling The Sun that things seemed to go well.

The insider claimed: “Aaron went for a screen test to be the next Bond in September and producers and Barbara loved him. He is now one of the front-runners.”

But will the role definitely be going to a male actor? Well, there have even been questions about whether or not the new 007 could mark a change in direction for the character, with a female star instead.

Gillian Anderson tweeted an fan-made poster of herself in the iconic role, writing: "It's Bond. Jane Bond," which led fans calling for the studio to 'make it happen'.
