The role of 007 is something that is truly filmography royalty. So many amazing actors have played the role and all of them have done a great job at doing so. Now, there seems to be discussion on who should get the role of James Bond next and the jury is split.
As reported by Yahoo, If you were to ask George Lazenby; he feels that Liam Hemsworth would make a good James Bond.
The 83-year-old actor – who played the secret agent in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – would like to see a fellow Australian replace Daniel Craig.
Lazenby told TMZ a “good-looking Aussie dude” such as Liam would be the best person to step into Bond’s shoes, after Craig has played the role for five films since 2006.
He also said that Liam is: “crazy enough, arrogant enough, confident enough, ambitious enough to take on the role.”
However, with this, George also said that he would love to see a woman play 007. He said: : “I would rather see a woman on screen than a man, so it might be a good idea having a woman play James Bond… Jane Bond. I think it’s a good idea. I mean, why not? There’s an Australian actress that I was just listening to on the television today, Margot Robbie. She would be good. She’s ballsy. She comes across like she’s very confident… if you can pull that off, people will believe you.”
We will have to see where the franchise goes from here. There’s so many directions that can be taken, but it ultimately is up to the ones behind the cameras.
