In fact, since the formalization of the future departure of Daniel Craig, many are trying to guess the identity of his replacement on the screen. And while the names of Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), Henry Cavill (The Witcher) or even Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders) have long been cited, the new favourite would not be the british most well-known of the world.
A perfect actor for the role
According to the information of the Sun – as relayed by Allociné, this is James Norton, who would now be held the rope to portray agent 007. 34-year-old comedian would have already “met secretly to Barbara Broccoli, head of EON Productions and daughter of the creator of the saga ” James Bond” in order to pass a first hearing.
And if his name means nothing to you, his face should still be familiar. Already seen in the series Black Mirror, Happy Valley , or War and Peace, he is currently the poster of the film The daughters of dr. March (Little Women) directed by Greta Gerwig. Above all, James Norton has the perfect physical for such a role : grand, imposing, charming, wears beautifully and the costumes (see below) and young (ideal to carry the license over the long term), difficult not to want to entrust to him the keys of the franchise.
