Though he won’t exactly be celebrating the box office flop that his latest film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword has become, that hasn’t stopped Charlie Hunnam from making public appearances and promoting the flick at every opportunity.
Putting that film aside however and moving onto James Bond in a chat with Conan O’Brien on chat Conan, he seemed to hint he would consider taking on the world’s most famous spy if he were given the opportunity.
Chatting on Conan, the actor said: “I can say two things. I’m English and I look devilishly handsome in a suit. 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. …If you (Conan O’Brien) decide not to do it, you can just throw your ol’ pal Charlie’s name in the hat.”
There are a series of big names connection to the Bond role right now, with the likes of Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender and Tom Hiddleston allegedly being considered if Daniel Craig doesn’t return for another outing as 007.
It’s going to be interesting to see who eventually lands the lead role for Bond 25, as it’s likely one they’ll enjoy for a number of years rather than just a one-off.
