It’s a role that’s been speculated about for a while now and we’re still unsure as to who will take on the part of 007. Daniel Craig is yet to fully rule himself out of returning and Tom Hiddleston made himself a new contender after recently declaring his interest.
But now we have another name to add to the mix as according to Metro, Aidan Turner has already “held preliminary talks with Bond producers” about becoming the new James Bond.
The source also added that the Irish actor is now in LA which will “give him a further chance to discuss the role.”
Turner is best known for his role as Kili in The Hobbit films. While he also made a name for himself in BBC TV shows Being Human and The Poldark Novels.
Whether Turner will actually get offered the role as Bond is unknown but he’s certainly added his name to the ever-growing list of contenders.
