The name's Bond ... Loki Bond? It feels like the Internet spent half of 2015 following rumors of who would/should be the next James Bond, even though Daniel Craig hasn't 100 percent left the gig (yet). Idris Elba got a lot of headlines, for good and not-so-good reasons, and Hugh Jackman and Tom Hardy threw their respective hats in the ring. Some folks also like the idea of Michael Fassbender or Henry Cavill as 007.
And now Tom Hiddleston is entering the ring.
Hiddleston -- still probably best known for his dastardly doings with Marvel's "Avengers," and next seen as Hank Williams in "I Saw the Light," the miniseries "The Night Manager," and "Kong: Skull Island"-- told the Sunday Times (via Entertainment Weekly) that he'd definitely be up for the Bond challenge:
"I'm a huge fan of the series. We all went to see Spectre when we were shooting Skull Island in Hawaii. I simply love the theme tune, the tropes and the mythology. I love the whole thing. If it ever came knocking, it would be an extraordinary opportunity. ... And I'm very aware of the physicality of the job. I would not take it lightly."
He sounds pretty into it. These guys should just skip the subtlety and shout "CAST ME, DAMMIT!" and start campaigning against each other. Take the gloves off.
Seriously, though, this whole Bond thing is turning into quite a packed clown car. Whoever The Powers That Be cast as the next 007 will surely face a lot of criticism, but Daniel Craig did as well.
Now is your chance to weigh in: How do you feel about Tom Hiddleston as Bond? Who is your preferred choice?
