Could Tom Hardy be about to take on the role of James Bond?

This would be incredible...

Ben Kenyon

There has been much talk of who will be the next James Bond when Daniel Craig relinquishes the role.

Craig has already announced he will not be carrying on as 007 after his the latest incarnation Spectre, which has set tongues wagging.

Idris Elba and Damian Lewis are favourites to clinch the part of Britain’s favourite secret agent.

But it seems like bookmakers’ odds are falling on another big Hollywood name – Tom Hardy.

The 37-year-old Brit can do no wrong on screen at the moment with starring roles in Max Max, Batman, Inception and lately playing both Kray twins in Legend.

Odds have been slashed on Hardy who is now at 4/1 – but faces stiff competition from other big names like Michael Fassbender, Orlando Bloom and Dominic West.

We know Hardy can play the violent nutter (Bronson), the psychopath (The Dark Knight) and the nothing-to-lose fighter (Warrior) – but does he have suave, charming and deadly British agent in his locker? We’d bet on it.
