Aaron Taylor-Johnson has reportedly been offered the role of the next James Bond.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson is said to be in line to portray the iconic spy James Bond. The 33-year-old British actor, known for his roles in Kick-Ass and Nowhere Boy, is reportedly set to take on the role as the new 007 following Daniel Craig’s departure. Reports from The Sun suggest that Eon Productions has extended the offer to Taylor-Johnson for the lead role.

It is anticipated that he will accept the offer and commence filming later this year at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire. According to Ladbrokes, Taylor-Johnson remains the frontrunner to succeed Craig as James Bond, surpassing contenders like Henry Cavill and Damson Idris. Cosmo Jarvis has also emerged as a new potential candidate following his role in the mini-series Shogun on Disney+ Japan.

Taylor-Johnson recently wrapped up filming for the Marvel film Kraven The Hunter and is scheduled to appear in The Fall Guy alongside Ryan Gosling. When asked about the possibility of playing Bond, he expressed gratitude for the consideration, calling it a great honor.
