There have been numerous names linked to James Bond after Daniel Craig hangs up his 007 boots and Chris Hemsworth is now one of them.
Hemsworth was asked about taking on the iconic role in a new interview with Balance.
The publication pointed out that his part as James Hunt in “Rush” was the “ultimate calling card” for playing Bond.
Hemsworth said, “When we were shooting ‘Rush’ someone had said that and I thought, Cool, if this is my audition tape, then great. I don’t think you’ll ever meet anyone who doesn’t want to have a crack at James Bond. I’d love to do it.
“But that’s up to so many elements and is way beyond myself; it’s not one you can pitch yourself onto, either.”
“It’s something that the community of Bond fans, Barbara Broccoli and the whole crew there agree on, and it has to be a very organic decision from them. There have been a lot of names thrown out there and a lot of brilliant people can tackle that one.”
Armie Hammer and Idris Elba are just two others who have also been linked with the part.
