Tom Hardy entertains playing James Bond if Christopher Nolan were involved

01.16.2017

Fun Fact: Tom Hardy would really like to portray the theatrical super spy, James Bond, at some point in his career. Even if the MAD MAX: FURY ROAD actor tries to downplay his zeal about his aspirations to suit up and request that his martinis be shaken, not stirred, Hardy can’t help but gush about the prospects of his oft-times collaborative partner, Christopher Nolan, directing a 007 thrill ride some time down the line.

When the progressively liberal news website, The Daily Beast, mentioned that helming a James Bond adventure was kind of a bucket list project for the INCEPTION and INTERSTELLAR director, Hardy could barely contain himself by saying:

Oh wow, Chris would be amazing!

When inquiring about his own aspirations to play the iconic MI6 agent, Tom responded with the following:

You know, there’s a saying amongst us in the fraternity of acting, and in the fellowship of my peer group, that if you talk about it you’re automatically out of the race. So I can’t possibly comment on that one! If I mention it, it’s gone. But Chris Nolan, what a fantastic director for a Bond movie. And because Daniel [Craig] is so good, and what [Sam] Mendes and Barbara [Broccoli] have done has been so impressive, that it would be a very hard reimagination to follow after. I wonder what the next installment of that franchise would become, and I think when you mention someone like Christopher Nolan, that’s a very powerful figure to bring into that world who could bring something new and create something profound — again.

Now, we’ve no idea what’s on the horizon in regard to the turbulent tales of Agent 007, but one could surmise that SPECTER (2015) won’t be the last time we watch Bond tussle and woo his way through an intricate and action-packed mission for the betterment of mankind.

You can catch Tom Hardy when he joins the cast of Christopher Nolan’s war epic, DUNKIRK, which is scheduled for a July 21, 2017 release.

I think I have enough of Sam Mendes for two consecutive Bond movies. New director is needed.

Morgan Freeman amazing in everything, brad Pitt needs to do more, he filled in mad max just fine and Mel is 90, brosnan was by technicality the second worst bond according to the books and fans. Thug in a tuxedo is the description, he was too pretty. Craig was great because he filled the character description perfectly. Hardy plays thug to the tree in several movies. Not saying he's the best choice but not a terrible one

There's never too much Tom Hardy...find something original? Almost every film he has played in was original, minus a couple like Dark Knight Rises and Mad Max...I mean haven't you seen Locke, Legend, Warrior, Child 44, The Drop...I could go on man...I see nothing wrong with him picking up a couple "unoriginal" roles here and there. He has a fantastic resume and everyone wants to work with him and he is also one of the most liked actors around right now, must be doing something right!

Would still rather see Michael Fassbender be the next person to carry on the legacy of Bond. Maybe Hardy as a Bond villain??
