Tom Holland Wants To Replace Daniel Craig As James Bond

First it was Peaky Blinders' Cillian Murphy, then it was Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Bridgerton's Regé-Jean Page - and even Harry Styles.

They have all been rumoured to be Daniel Craig's replacement as James Bond, but now Tom Holland has thrown his hat in the ring.

Yep, the Spider-Man star has revealed he would like to play 007 in the films after No Time To Die, which will be Daniel's final stint as Bond.

In an interview featured in the Variety Award Circuit podcast, Tom was asked what role he would most like to play.

He said: "Ultimately as a young British lad who loves cinema, I'd love to be James Bond.

"So, y'know, I'm just putting that out there. I mean I look pretty good in a suit! I'd be like a really short James Bond."

The interviewer then suggests Maggie Smith should play M, and Tom replies: "It would be amazing!"

Speaking with Shortlist in 2017, he said: "I actually want to brush up on my James Bond knowledge, because Sony release Spider-Man and Bond.

"I keep telling them I'm the next 007 - as a joke. But also as a kind of serious, 'C'mon guys, let's make this happen.'

"If I keep casually dropping it into interviews, it'll eventually happen."

Tom is no stranger to playing iconic characters in massive franchises, having played Peter Parker aka Spider-Man since the 2016 MCU film Captain America: Civil War.
