Will the James Bond casting rumors ever comply with the spy franchises’ well-known tune and dwell and let die? Not right this moment they gained’t! New contender and Henry Cavill’s The Witcher alternative Liam Hemsworth has stepped into the ring of “30-something actors who look good in a go well with,” this time on the advice of former 007 George Lazenby.
The On Her Majesty’s Secret Service actor dropped Hemsworth’s title whereas talking with TMZ, saying that The Starvation Video games star has the best sort of resume to play the enduring spy—together with being a “handsome Aussie dude,” which appears fairly essential to Lazenby as he’s Australian himself.
Although Hemsworth may not have the identical worldwide recognition as his older brother Chris Hemsworth, Lazenby notes that the long run Bond must be “loopy sufficient, smug sufficient, assured sufficient, bold sufficient to tackle the function” after Daniel Craig, which, in response to Lazenby, Hemsworth appears to be.
Though, simply because he’s been given the thumbs up from one other Bond doesn’t imply he’s really within the working for the aggressive function. Out of all of the male thirty-something’s being mentioned, Bullet Prepare actor and Twitter fancam favourite Aaron Taylor-Johnson appears to be the present front-runner after Puck Information reported a promising assembly between Johnson and James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli.
One other actor that might put a cease to Hemsworth’s rating in potential Bond actors is Emily In Paris’ Lucien Laviscount, who The Mail On Sunday claimed had captured Broccoli’s consideration. “He’s a brilliant gifted actor, is extraordinarily good-looking and previously 18 months has gained plenty of new followers since he joined Emily In Paris,” mentioned a supply to the publication. “Bond bosses are already saying how one can see him within the 007 tuxedo, how dapper and becoming to the function he’ll look.”
Even if he’s barely a spec in the Bond producer’s eyes, Hemsworth’s upcoming role as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher may have him taking up from one other proposed favourite for the M16 agent, Henry Cavill. To say to the Isn’t It Romantic star: could the casting odds be in your favor!
