James Bond: Kingsman 2 star Taron Egerton wants to replace Daniel Craig as 007

The 27-year-old star attended the star-studded world premiere for Kingsman: The Golden Circle last night alongside Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Elton John and more.

With it’s well-dressed British style and gadgets, the inspiration of James Bond is clear and now Egerton has thrown his hat in the ring to replace Craig.

Speaking to Daily Mail on the red carpet, he said: “If I was asked, yeah. Amazing. Amazing – of course!”

Comparing his spy to Bond, the actor said: “I don’t know how much better [Eggsy] is … I think he’s quite a nice alternative.”

Last month Craig announced that he would return for a fifth and final outing as 007.

James Bond 25 will be released in UK cinemas in early November 2019.
