Charlie Hunnam is the latest actor to throw his hat into the ring to become the next James Bond. The long-running franchise has been in limbo ever since Sam Mendes’ Spectre hit theaters in 2015.
King Arthur star Charlie Hunnam appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien on Thursday and addressed some speculation that he could be in line to play the next James Bond.
"I can say two things. I'm English and I look devilishly handsome in a suit," the 37-year-old said. "I can say three things… and nobody has called me about playing James Bond, so I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen."
Of course, regardless of which studio ends up winning the rights to distribute the next James Bond movie, the question is, who will be suiting up as 007? Daniel Craig has been on the fence about reprising his role for a fifth installment; he made his debut as the British spy over a decade ago, in Martin Campbell’s Casino Royale. Craig says that filming Bond is tiring, and he has to seriously consider if another go-around is worth it. If he chooses to officially retire the suit, then someone else will need to step up.
