Aaron Perry Taylor-Johnson is a renowned English actor born in 1990 in High Wycombe, UK. The Bullet Train kick-ass star is currently the favourite among contenders likely to play James Bond, with odds of 4/7. 

Prediction

Aaron Taylor Johnson shot to the top position after he made a secret screening for the 007 Role back in September 2022. So our prediction to succeed Daniel Craig

Tom Hardy

Edward Thomas Hardy CBE, popularly known as Tom Hardy, is one of the most high-profile English actors known for his roles in Mad Max Fury Road, Venom, and Legend. The 1977-born actor is also among the stars likely to play the popular British spy.

Prediction

A lot of peoples favourite to take on the role of 007. And with odds of 7/1 across different sports betting sites, he is definitely with a shout.

Henry Cavill

Born in 1983, Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill is among the most notable English stars who have long been considered the perfect fit for 007. Cavill, who recently left the DC's Superman movie series, is considered the perfect actor to fill Daniel Craig's shoes with multiple directors, including Matthew Vaughn, highly recommending him for the role.

Prediction

He has the characteristics needed and with no longer under contract for Superman he is available, but we just don’t think he will play this secret agent.

James Norton

James Norton is an English actor born in 1985. Despite being an underdog, Norton is considered one of the key contenders that might play 007 with odds of 10/1. In recent years, Norton has surprised movie fans with his incredible performance in movies and TV shows like Happy Valley, Nowhere Special, McMafia, and Happy Valley.

Prediction

Would be a popular choice with his charm and looks but with 10/1 odds, we don’t think so.

Rege-Jean Page

Since his performance in the TV period drama Bridgerton, the 1988-born Londoner has been quite a force to reckon with in the film Industry. Rege Jean Page, who also starred in the movie Gray Man is among the contenders likely to star as the popular British spy 007 in the coming Bond films with odds of 9/2 across different sportsbooks.

Prediction

One of the younger contenders with a lot of hype, and in a world of change, we put him as a close second.

Other 007 Contenders - Outside Bets

Apart from the above-discussed stars, other actors who have been rumoured to be worthy James Bond contenders, for instance:

  • Idris Elba – 7/1
  • Richard Madden – 9/1
  • Chiwetel Ejiofor – 7/1
  • Dan Stevens – 8/1
  • Jonathan Bailey – 20/1

Each actor, including Tom Holland, has the skills and personality to play the most coveted role of 007, British most renowned fictional spy.

Public Opinion About the Next James Bond

The interest to know who will replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond is building among 007 fans. According to public opinion, 53% of fans thought it was unacceptable for the next James Bond to be a female, whereas 31% thought it was acceptable. Currently, Lashana Lynch is the only female actress on the list of stars likely to play the role.

  • Tom Hardy – 28%

Film Critic Predictions

There have also been a lot of predictions by film critics ever since Craig David announced he would be retiring as the secret agent with a Licence to Kill. Even though many names have been thrown around, including that of Taylor Johnson, Tom Hardy, and Henry Cavill, film critics predict that Aaron Taylor-Johnson has a high chance of playing the Martini-sipping 007 agent. Not only does Taylor-Johnson fit the character, but also the looks, skills, and charisma for the role.

Betting on the star that will play James Bond is straightforward. However, you need to apply some strategies and betting tips, such as the ones discussed below, if you want to make the correct bet:
