One of Miles Teller's relatives has started a campaign to land him his next big gig!
Leona Flowers, the 35-year-old Top Gun: Maverick star’s grandmother, took to Twitter to nominate her grandson to take up the mantle as the next James Bond.
“They’re looking for an actor to replace Daniel Craig for future 007 movies. I think my grandson, Miles Teller, has proven that he has everything they’re looking for – talent, looks, strength, worldwide appeal and oh, so cool,” she tweeted.
While the post was met with a great amount of support, some people took issue with the fact Teller isn’t British, but Flowers swiftly responded to those doubting her grandson’s talent.
“He studied acting, which includes accents. He’d be great… Miles is very proud of his genetic connection to the British Isles,” she wrote.
“I think our English friends would welcome him as 007.”
Who are we to suggest otherwise?!
