Henry Cavill James Bond – Henry Cavill Thinks He’s Prepared to Be James Bond After Mission Impossible
When Daniel Craig took the mantle of James Bond from Pierce Brosnan, it marked an important shift of the character from a posh pretty boy to a rugged badass. Craig was exactly what the franchise needed—a gritty leading man, who showed the vulnerability of Bond, scars and all. The upcoming 25th Bond movie will be Craig’s last, which mean the hunt is on for who will be the next 007. It’s not an easy role to fill, but already, fans have their hearts set on either Tom Hardy or Idris Elba. Not so fast, though, because Henry Cavill is ready to nominate himself as the next Bond.
In an interview with Yahoo Movies, the actor says that being in Mission: Impossible Fallout has prepared him to be the next Bond (in case anyone Eon Productions and MGM is listening).
“I think Bond would be a really fun role,” Cavill said. “It’s British, it’s cool. I think now that I have my Mission: Impossible badge we can do real stunts and really amp it up as well.”
I mean, he does have some of those boxes checked: Cavill is a handsome, British man, who’s willing to do dangerous things on camera.
“Not to say they weren’t doing real stunts–I’m just saying it would be fun for me to actually take what I’ve learnt on this and carry it through to a movie like Bond,” he continued. “I’d love to play a Brit–I don’t get to play a Brit very often. So yes, I would love the opportunity and if they were to ask, I would say yes.”
He’d definitely be more of a Brosnan type—a stiff hunk who just looks good and says things. That said, maybe the franchise needs something a bit more exciting, someone like *cough* Idris Elba *cough*.
But on the off chance anyone out there is looking for a new Bond, Cavill would be willing to help you out.
