Charlie Hunnam Is "100 Per Cent" Game To Play James Bond But Thinks Tom Hardy Is The Better Choice

Charlie Hunnam said he "would be so flattered and honoured to be considered to play James Bond."

Charlie Hunnam wants to play James Bond.

The Gentlemen actor admitted to People magazine that he'd be "flattered and honoured" to take over as 007 after Daniel Craig's final outing as the suave spy in No Time To Die but thinks it's unlikely he'd be offered the part.

Asked if he'd be open to playing bond, Charlie said: "100 per cent."

He added: "I would be so flattered and honored to be considered to play James Bond as an Englishman. But my intuition tells me that I shouldn't be waiting for that phone call to come. I think there are many people ahead of me on that list."

The 40-year-old actor dismissed any rumours about him taking the role as "external chatter" but admitted it's "flattering" that fans would like to see him lead the franchise.

He said, "It's very flattering sort of fan dialogue. Nobody's ever, on a professional level from within the industry, brought that up to me."

However, Charlie encouraged fans to keep speculating that he could get the job as he thinks there's a slim chance it could help.

He said: "As much as people want to talk about me playing James Bond, please continue. Maybe that's the genesis of these things. Maybe fan chatter leads to industry people actually talking about it in a more serious way."

If he doesn't land the iconic role, the Sons of Anarchy actor would love to see Tom Hardy to portray Bond.

He said: "The person that I hear about in that conversation is Tom Hardy. "I hear that he's really the front runner [to play James Bond next].

"I think that would be sensational. I'm an enormous Tom Hardy fan so I would love to see him as James Bond."— BANG
