Former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has backed Tom Hardy to step into the role.
Daniel Craig will star in another yet-to-be-named Bond film, set to release next year, but it is unclear what his plans will be beyond that film.
In any case, Brosnan has backed Hardy in to portray Bond, saying he has the attributes.
“I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond. I’d be happy to see him do it,” Brosnan told The Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine.
“You need an actor who can put a bit of wiggle into it – that’s what makes Bond.”
Brosnan also praised Craig for the work he'd put into being Bond after taking over the role.
“Daniel Craig has been an incredible Bond,” he said.
“He’s very physical, he looks lethal. You genuinely believe this is someone who could kill a man.”
