Orlando Bloom has thrown his hat in the ring for the ‘James Bond’ role, following reports claiming that Tom Hiddleston is no longer being considered for the job.
It’s believed that bosses are currently looking for someone to play 007, as Daniel Craig looks likely to step down from the role, and the ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ star would be delighted to take over.
He told BBC News: “I grew up loving those [Bond] films. Who didn’t?
Revealing how he would approach playing the spy, Orlando continued: “I think it’d be very English, but that sort of twinkle with the muscular dynamic.
There’s also been talk of a female star taking on the job and ‘Line Of Duty’ actor Vicky McClure has responded to rumours that she could be next in line.
“This rumour is a very funny thing to have happened,” she said in March. “A Nottingham girl playing Bond is never going to happen in a million years.
“But it would be genius if it did, wouldn’t it?”
