Well it looks like Coral‘s oddsmakers agree with the fans because his odds just became 2-1 to land the coveted role, only one behind other favorite Tom Hardy.
Sam also recently spoke to Esquire UK about the rumors and if he’s interested in portraying 007.
Sam said, “I think any actor would never say they’re not interested. Of course, you’d be interested. I mean, it is all rumours, and sometimes you think, should I, should we even talk about it? Because you don’t want to jinx it. I’m sure the people, whoever runs [Bond] – you know, Barbara Broccoli and Eon and all that – they must be sick of it; people sort of throwing their hat into the ring. But yeah, he’s a great character, and would be certainly be a fascinating character study and place to kick off. But I think in SAS we have our own authentic note based on real life scenarios, we have our authentic character, so I’d love to explore this one more.”
And if you’re a fan of Outlander, you’re going to want to see this news.
