Tom Hardy on Playing Bond: “I Would Love to do it”

The British actor says he would jump at the chance to play James Bond.

A s the new Bond film ‘Spectre’ hits cinemas, there is plenty of speculation as to whether Daniel Craig will return to the role for one more film, or if the producers will decide to cast someone new. There are a whole host of actors who could potentially fit the famous role, and Tom Hardy’s name comes up on the top of that list. So, what does he think about playing Bond? He says he’d love to do it but also knows there is lots of competition:

“I would love to do it. Who wouldn’t? If I did get the chance, I would smash it out the park… There is a long list of talent in this country who would love the honour just as much as me and could do it just as well.”

Tom has a feeling that Daniel will return to the role for one more film because they currently have a winning formula on their hands and he believes they won’t want to mess with it:

“I believe Daniel will do one more. He, (director) Sam Mendes, (producers) Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson are an amazing team and have really got it cracked. Why would they want to break up that winning formula?”

Meanwhile, Daniel’s Spectre co-star Naomie Harris believes not everyone understands the actor’s dry British humour, particularly in print interviews. Daniel recently stirred up headlines when he said he’d rather “break this glass and slash my wrists” than play Bond again, but Naomie says that people just didn’t realise he was joking around with the comment:

“Daniel lives and breathes Bond, it (his comments) was not as he intended it. (His) sense of humour… doesn’t come across particularly well in print… It’s easy to take something that someone says in passing and blow it completely out of proportion. I think that’s what’s happened here, so I don’t really believe those comments at all.”
