As the buzz continues to hum around who will inherit the license to kill from the outgoing 007 agent Daniel Craig, James Bond producer, Michael G. Wilson has revealed key details about who the next spy will be. Speaking to the audience at a British Film Institute panel held to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the spy franchise, Wilson explained, via Deadline why they were not looking to cast a young actor in the iconic role of James Bond and why an older industry veteran will be more fitting.
"We’ve tried looking at younger people in the past,” said Wilson “But trying to visualize it doesn’t work. Remember, Bond’s already a veteran. He’s had some experience. He’s a person who has been through the wars, so to speak. He’s probably been in the SAS or something. He isn’t some kid out of high school that you can bring in and start off. That’s why it works for a 30-something.” This new update ultimately quells speculations that casting a younger actor was part of the franchise’s reinvention plan and also crosses off names like Jacob Elordi and Tom Holland from fan-casting lists but leaves on Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, and Henry Cavill. Interestingly, this also rules out 40-something old actors fans had hoped to take the mantle such as Tom Hardy, Sam Heughan, and Jamie Dornan.
