Damian Would Love To Be Considered for James Bond Role in 2020 – Nov 1, 2018

Guitars and Bond

by Ryan Parry and James Desborough | Daily Mail | November 1, 2018

Damian Lewis jokes to DailyMailTV that his guitar skills could help him nab the coveted role of 007 over top contenders Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston and Richard Madden. He believes he would make a great James Bond, telling DailyMailTV, “The name’s Bond… Busking Bond.”

His musical talent was revealed by close friend and Spooks star Matthew Macfadyen on the red carpet in Los Angeles at the Britannia Awards. The actor said of Lewis:

“There is no reason he should not be Bond. He is suave and sexy, he has a whiff of danger about him. He can ride motorbikes. He can play the guitar and he can dance. He is a red head and that is different and something unique, so I do not see any reason why not?”

Emmy and Golden Globe winner Lewis has made it clear he wants to be the man to replace Daniel Craig when he hangs up his Walther PPK in 2020. The 47-year-old told DailyMailTV he’d love to be considered for the role, and will ‘work hard’ to convince executive producers what their next 007 could look like.

We here at damian-lewis.com are partial to, “The name’s Bond…Ginge Bond.” But all that matters is for Damian to land the part! For more James Bond readings about Damian, visit our Fan Fun page.

British Vogue released a list of dream boys they’d like to see play the next James Bond.

As speculation amped up last week about who will follow in Daniel Craig’s 007 footsteps, Idris Elba sent the rumour mill into overdrive with an “Is he? Isn’t he?” Twitter tease.

“My name’s Elba, Idris Elba,” he posted, sparking mass excitement amongst his followers, before appearing to dismiss the widespread claims by advising people not to believe “the hype”.

Here, we chart the contenders – the likely and the left-field – who could step into the famous spy’s sleek tuxedo for future incarnations of the franchise (when Craig does indeed hang up his Speedos for good).

#3 – Damian Lewis

One of the older candidates in the running at 47, the actor has the gentlemanly air down pat and was an early front runner for the next Bond – particularly thanks to the fervent following he garnered after his acting skills were brought to the masses in Homeland.
