He would be very fit for the role in fairness!

It was thought that it was only a matter of time before Aaron Taylor Johnson was announced as the next actor to take on the role of James Bond, but now things don’t seem as clear.

It’s been 2 years since Daniel Craig handed in his 007 badge and it seems the hunt for his successor continues.

As the weeks roll on with no news on who the next Bond will be, speculation has reignited on who else could be up for consideration.

34-year-old actor Taron Egerton is back in the bookies favourites as a likely candidate.

The English actor received lots of critical acclaim for his portrayal of Elton John in Rocketman and played a very similar role to James Bond in the Kingsman movies which were a breakout role for him.

The actor has been asked before about taking on the role of Bond and his response has been that he doesn’t think he’s “the right choice”.

However things might have changed in the last while and who’s to say he could be swayed if the right offer is on the table?

We’ll just have to wait and see!
