Rory Kinnear opens up on Aaron Taylor-Johnson
Kinnear was asked on The One Show about the chances of Taylor-Johnson, 32, starring as the next Bond, after a “lot of noise” about the Kick-Ass and Bullet Train actor being up for the role.
He replied[via Yahoo]:
“I always feel slightly bad for the people who are being highlighted, because that never tends to be them. They are very good at keeping the real person secret.
Kinnear, who also ruled himself out of playing Bond, added: “I’d be interested to see who does take over, obviously, but it tends not to be the frontrunner, that’s historically.”
