There has been a ton of talk in the last few months about who the next actor to play James Bond will be and now we have a new name to add to the list — Jamie Bell!
After Daniel Craig reportedly turned down nearly $100 to play 007 in two more films, names like Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy, and even Gillian Anderson have had a lot of fan support to be Craig's replacement.
Though most of the actors rumored to be up for the part are A-listers, Bell — most known for playing the titular character in Billy Elliot – has joined the list of candidates thanks to Bond producer Barbara Broccoli's fondness of the actor!
Barbara is currently working on Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool with the 30-year-old and has been quite impressed with his talent over the years as a source revealed to The Sun, saying:
Well last week, things seem to have come to a definitive end as it was reported that Craig reportedly turned down nearly $100 million to return for two more pictures — and now X-Files Gillian Anderson is interested in filling the void!
While we all know about the fan support for Idris Elba and we know Tom Hiddleston has voiced his interest, there's also a group of fans that are campaigning to have Anderson take over as the next 007 by tweeting #NextBond.
After seeing a fan made poster of herself, Gillian took to Twitter to respond to the support saying:

As for why the Craig turned down the offer, one L.A. film source dished:

Well it seems the Hiddleston Bond hype hasn't died down as the 35-year-old stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night and chatted about the possibility of being the next 007!
Ch-ch-check out the interview (above) to hear Tom's thoughts on the iconic British character, as well as who he thinks the British version of Donald Trump is!
Make sure you catch Jimmy Kimmel Live! when it airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on ABC!
Even though Tom Hiddleston is known more for his villainous personas onscreen, the Crimson Peak star would jump at the "extraordinary opportunity" to step into the role of 007!
During an interview with the Sunday Times, the actor made his adoration for the action franchise clear while gushing about the latest Bond film Spectre!
Ever since Daniel Craig's most recent outing as James Bond in Spectre, there has been a lot of speculation that we've seen the last of the Brit playing 007.
While there has not been any OFFICIAL word on whether or not the blue eyed stud will come back, it sounds like his acting buddy Mark Strong knows that Craig is done for good.
During an interview with Shortlist to promote his new comedy The Brothers Grimsby, Strong revealed that Daniel has
