Well, it seems that today everyone wants to become the next James Bond. Yesterday, Tom Holland expressed his desire to bring the iconic British agent to life, and now it was Ryan Reynolds who also wants to keep this role. Perhaps Reynolds has told jokingly, but apparently would have no problem if given the role.
Speaking to The Times, Reynolds had the following to say:
“I heard they were looking for the next Bond. Would you be willing to accept a Canadian who drinks gin instead of martinis? In case it is, I am interested. “
Reynolds recently starred in Red Room, a Netflix original film alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Gal Gadot. Interestingly, Johnson was also a bit interested in the role of Bond :
Yes, my grandfather was a Bond villain on You Only Live Twice with Sean Connery. It was very, very cool. And I would like to follow in his footsteps and become the next Bond. I don’t want to be a villain. I want to be Bond. “
So as you can see, the competition to be the next James Bond is pretty heavy, but its producers are sure to find an actor worthy of filling this important role. Although that will have to wait until next year.
Editor’s Note: Although Reynolds is obviously joking, the role wouldn’t look too bad for him. I mean, we all associate the actor with comedy roles, but we’ve seen that when he has to take things seriously, Reynolds is more than capable of it.
