NEXT JAMES BOND hopeful Tom Hardy has been near the top of the Bond odds for some time, but he is beginning to falter. Newcomer to the top ten Cillian Murphy is well known as Hardy’s colleague from Dunkirk – but will the Venom actor be able to defeat the Peaky Blinders star?
Hardy is best known for Venom, Inception and Dunkirk – which hit TV screens over the weekend on BBC Two.
But the idea of him becoming James Bond has become a popular one, both with 007 fans and betters alike.
At the moment he has a strong fourth place in Ladbrokes’ odds, with a powerful 5/1 on becoming the new and improved Bond.
