Jamie Bell Discussed Playing James Bond?

A while back came rumors that one potential candidate to replace Daniel Craig in the role of iconic British spy James Bond is 30-year-old Jamie Bell.

While that report originated in a UK tabloid, a new report over at Deadline has confirmed that the actor has in fact already talked with Bond franchise producer Barbra Broccoli about the possibility. If cast he would easily be the youngest actor to take on the role.

No negotiations for the next Bond have started, with Craig not expected to engage in talks about potentially returning until things like director and script are locked down – something that won’t happen until the end of the year at the earliest.
