Tom Hiddleston Confirms He’s Not In Talks For James Bond Takeover

Despite being a strong contender to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond, Tom Hiddleston declared he’s not been in talks with the people concerned. Taylor Swift’s former boyfriend was said to be the favorite pick to take on the Agent 007 role, as Craig has expressed retiring from Bond. But alas, the role is not actually in the cards for the star of “The Nigh Manager.”

Details to his discussion with Nick Grimshaw of BBC are below.

Hiddleston said, “Obviously it’s very flattering that people think I’m part of the conversation … Neither of those two opportunities have come my way. It’s difficult because people say ‘How would you feel if you were asked?’ and you don’t know because you haven’t been asked.”

Meanwhile, Tom has revealed he had to train with a navy seal and two royal marines for his role in “Kong: Skull Island,” which sees him play former SAS tracker Captain James Conrad, who is hired to help hunt down the ape.

Speaking previously, he said: “I was trained by a US navy seal and I worked with two British royal marines and it basically involved getting up at four o’clock in the morning and do all manner of running, jumping, lifting, pulling, pushing and then going and doing a day’s work filming.”

The actor is also rumored to star on the upcoming film “Doctor Who.”
