In news that will literally shock NOBODY, Tom Hardy wants to throw his hat in the ring to be the next James BOND. Shocked?
Obvi, no. The star was out and about promoting his new film Legend and hinted at wanting the role in an interview with Esquire magazine earlier this month.
Many British names are being linked to the role, including Idris Elba (WHO IS BLACK?! OMG. and Hardy. Bond novelist Anthony Horowitz had to issue an apology last week after saying Elba was “too street” for the role, because people are gross and old and very racist. Anyhow, in case you don’t want to talk about race in the media- how about focusing on Tom Hardy and HIS need to play 007? Maybe? Eh.
While Hardy gave little away about whether he has been approached about the part, he said: “I think anybody would consider doing Bond, wouldn’t they?”
Sure, Tom. But especially YOU.
Would you watch Tom Hardy bond it up? Be real. Comment below.
