One of the habits this blog has is typing “news about James Bond” into Google to make sure we haven’t missed anything. Of late, there’s nothing to *really miss* but that doesn’t stop stories from being cranked out.
On Friday afternoon, for example, there are a number of stories about a number of actors who don’t know very much about the future of the 007 franchise. Here’s a sampling of the mirth and merriment. We don’t actually encourage to click on the links but for those who can’t help themselves, you can check these items out further.
Naomie Harris in the dark about James Bond (XPOSE.ie): The actress, who played Moneypenny in Skyfall and SPECTRE, doesn’t know if Daniel Craig is going to return to the 007 role or not. Turns out the story is actually a summary of The Evening Standard. But it rocketed to the top of our Google search anyway.
Damian Lewis has heard nothing about James Bond role (Guelph Mercury Tribune): The actor, 44, “had no contact with anyone about the possibility of him taking on the role of James Bond.” Once upon a time, that would have meant no story. Oh well…
Has Tom Hiddleston ruled himself out of playing James Bond (Metro): Of course, you’d think someone would actually have to make you an offer first, or even inquired about your availability. Metro’s story is a summary of a talk show appearance but declares Hiddleston has “practically ruled himself out.” Metro calls this, “Tragic.”
Ewan McGregor doesn’t understand why an actor would want to play James Bond (Metro again): The headline pretty says it all.
