Henry Cavill Open To Play James Bond

A little over ten years ago a decision had to be made about who would take over for Pierce Brosnan in the role of James Bond with the final list coming down to three names – Daniel Craig, Sam Worthington and Henry Cavill.

It was a role Craig ultimately won, but future Superman Cavill came close – his young age at the time reportedly suggested as being the main reason he didn’t get the gig.

Now though, he’s the perfect age and with talk that Craig may leave the role, could he be a potential candidate again? The actor appeared on BBC’s “The Graham Norton Show” (via ET this weekend, he was asked if he would consider taking over the iconic role should his schedule allow it. He responded:

“I’m very busy with the Superman stuff, but if there were any windows and they wanted me to do that kind of role, it would be great. I would love to do it.”

The likes of Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, Tom Hardy and Idris Elba have all been mentioned as potential candidates for the part. The Bond producers however famously have no issues going back to people who missed out the first time on playing Bond – such as they did with Moore and Brosnan.
