James Bond: Bookies’ favourite James Norton SPEAKS OUT on replacing Daniel Craig rumours

According to the , he wears black tie while socialising with women at a casino, fights villains and is seen in Craig-style swimming trunks in the sea.

On the Bond rumours, Norton said: “It’s lovely, wonderful and complimentary to be involved in that conversation but it’s just a rumour mill and that’s as far as it goes.

“I did mention at the time that those scenes would possibly contribute to the [Bond] rumours but McMafia is its own beast.

“I hope Daniel Craig does five more movies and can keep the rumours on himself. I’m a big fan of his and – selfishly – I’d like him to carry on.”

Other bookies favourites to replace Daniel Craig as Bond are Jack Huston at 4/1 and Aidan Turner at 7/1.

James Bond 25, Daniel Craig’s final 007 film, will be released in UK cinemas in November 2019.
