POLL: Should a Famous Actor Be the Next James Bond?
Even though Daniel Craig just recently began filming Bond 25, speculation is already running rampant about who could replace him after his final bow as agent 007. Recently Chris Hemsworth made comments about being interested in the role, which raised an interesting question: Should the next James Bond be played by a famous name actor? Would it be better to find someone who’s not a household name who can make the part their own without associations with other big parts they’ve played? ComingSoon.net is giving its readers a chance to answer that very question, along with a list of possible big names to choose from. Vote now in the polls below!

Returning cast members for the next James Bond adventure include Daniel Craig as Agent 007, Ralph Fiennes (Skyfall), Lea Seydoux (Spectre), Naomie Harris (Moonlight) and Ben Whishaw (Paddington 2). Bohemian Rhapsody Oscar Winner Rami Malek will play the film’s villain.
Bond 25 has seen its share of problems over the past year. It was initially to be directed by Danny Boyle, who exited the project abruptly this summer over creative differences. This delayed production while the studio was forced to search for new directors, before eventually landing on Cary Joji Fukunaga, best known for directing the first season of HBO’s True Detective.
EON Productions and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios recently reached an agreement with Universal Pictures to partner on the worldwide release of the 25th James Bond film. The superspy’s previous outing, Spectre, opened in U.S. theaters on November 16, 2015. The film earned $200 million domestically and $680.6 million internationally, for a worldwide total of $880.7 million.
The as-yet-untitled Bond 25 is due to hit cinemas on April 8, 2020.
