Aaron Taylor-Johnson Will Reportedly Be the Next 'James Bond'

According to reports, Aaron Taylor-Johnson will be the next James Bond, after the previous 007, Daniel Craig shot his final movie for the franchise last year.

Following the announcement in 2020 that No Time To Die would be Daniel Craig's last dance as the famous protagonist, rumors have been constantly murmured as to who will carry the torch for one of Britain's most famous and iconic movie franchises. With that being said, the rumors have been growing louder recently and the majority of speculation as to who will take over from Craig is pointing in the direction of Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

The 32-year-old British actor is best known for his appearances in movies such as Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Kick-Ass, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, where he played the role of Pietro, aka Quicksilver.

Celebrity gossip Instagram page, Deuxmoi -- one of Instagram's most popular sources of celebrity news -- speculated the news recently as it stated that an anonymous source told the platform that "Aaron Taylor-Johnson will be the next Bond," and that a "mini-trailer of him doing the famous Bond shot is going to be released in March/April 2023 to announce him as the new actor."

Although this news hasn't confirmed anything for the James Bond franchise, only time will tell as to whether Taylor-Johnson really does take his martini shaken, and not stirred.

This may well be true (and, if so, I hope all future Bond films include [italic]male[/italic] nude scenes), but using Deuxmoi as a source is laughable. She’ll post any bullshit gossip/made-up story she’s sent without checking to see if it’s even plausible - people make a sport of sending her ridiculous anonymous “scoops” just to see if she’ll post them, and she [italic]does[/italic] (she also features Enty on her podcast, which should tell you something).

I personally thought George Lazenby was a great James Bond and definitely a FAAAR better actor than Aaron Whatever. Aaron can’t act for shit. I wouldn’t pay a dime to see him in a James Bond film. There’s too many far more talented actors to choose from.

I thought the Broccolis decided to go with a man of color. Dev Patel is British and would be a far better choice.

No that's the diametric opposite of Bond. Bond was written as an utterly ordinary man who could easily blend in with the crowd to perform his missions. Not as a man lit by a spotlight at all times.

When I wrote the first one in 1953, I wanted Bond to be an extremely dull, uninteresting man to whom things happened; I wanted him to be a blunt instrument ... when I was casting around for a name for my protagonist I thought by God, [James Bond] is the dullest name I ever heard. — Ian Fleming, The New Yorker, 21 April 1962[5]

Exotic things would happen to and around him, but he would be a neutral figure—an anonymous, blunt instrument wielded by a government department."

Yeah, he was good in "Anna Karenina" and "Nowhere Boy" but that's because he played preening mama's boys with a fixation on an older woman.

Gee, I wonder how he managed to tap into those roles.

Taylor-Johnson is otherwise lacklustre and would be a dud as Bond.

Of the under-40s in the running, Jack Lowden might be the best actor while Sope Dirisu has the understated confidence and masculinity so many of the others lack.

Either of those two would suffice.

Hell, if they're looking to really do a 180 on the previous version then Nicholas Hoult could be a 21st Century Roger Moore.

by Anonymousreply 62January 5, 2023 4:05 AM

"What does acting have to do with it?"

It's a personality part.

Moore had lots of it, although no one would be crying out for his Hamlet.

Craig is more glum, but gave a BAFTA-nominated performance.

So Bond requires a mixture of skill and charisma.

What exactly would Taylor-Johnson bring to the part, exactly? Little personality and not a great deal of talent.
