I am sitting right here with the sudden realization that the following James Bond will most likely be youthful than me. All my life James Bond has all the time been performed by an actor older than me. I’ve by no means dismissed the concept that Bond could possibly be performed by somebody youthful, however the character wants the gravitas of somebody who’s (not less than) of their 30s. Bond producers have revealed that after they transfer on from Daniel Craig’s post-007 solid, they’ll maybe search for the elder Millennium and never Gen-Zer. That’s, somebody of their 40s or 30s, or so we hoped. Besides now there are experiences that Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s audition went rather well. Aaron is 32 years previous, however he appears a lot youthful.
In response to a brand new Puck report from Matthew Belloni, Aaron Taylor-Johnson is not only a fan-chosen title for the following Bond, he is met with producers.
“And, clearly, the granddaddy of coups, James Bond. Aaron Taylor-Johnson rumors are true. he sat down with producer Barbara Broccoli and the assembly went effectively, in line with sources,” he wrote.
Nevertheless, there’s a small drawback. “Though Taylor-Johnson matches the whole lot. nice actor, British, matches the younger path the Broccolis wish to go, established however not significantly well-known, he is about to change into a a lot greater star. If Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff Craven the Hunter or Common’s Ryan Gosling two-handed The Fall Man, Taylor-Johnson could, sarcastically, change into too well-known to tackle Bond.”
No official particulars have been launched concerning the following James Bond solid, however Broccoli stated in September 2022 that it will be “a couple of years off” earlier than we all know something.
Oddly sufficient, I all the time questioned if the “he is too well-known to play Bond” challenge may additionally play with Idris Elba. Admittedly, Barbara Broccoli appears completely reluctant to name 007 an individual of shade, however I’m wondering if Idris was simply too good. already well-known, too well-known and too completed. Anyway, if Broccoli is letting Aaron audition, he’ll undoubtedly let 32-year-old Dev Patel audition. That might be wonderful. As for Aaron’s speak specifically… I do not suppose he’d make James Bond, though I admit he is good trying and good in motion films. He appears very younger although.
