This could become really big -- and it sounds horrifying.

Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons, and possible 007?!
There has been all sorts of news recently surrounding which actor or actress might take over for Daniel Craig if he does indeed step away from the cinematic role of James Bond.
Reports Craig walked away from a MASSIVE contract as well as news that he was cast in both a film and a TV show seem to prove he's done — which means loads of actors and actresses are lining up for the part.
Emilia Clarke has decided she's not going to let Anderson be the only lady Bond in the running as she's ALSO thrown her hat in the ring to play the first female 007!
The 29-year-old actress revealed to The Sun:
But it looks like fan favorite contender Tom Hiddleston is still the frontrunner to to suit up as the next 007!
According to Birth.Movies.Death, the star of spy miniseries The Night Manager is in "advanced talks" to take over the role — but Loki fans shouldn't get too excited just yet!
While the actor has made no secret of his desires to play Bond, no official offer has been made as of now.
Though the Billy Elliot star's involvement could just be the studio's attempt to drive Hiddleston's price down, we wouldn't mind seeing either hunky Brit take over the franchise!
But let's be honest, can literally ANYONE look better in a tux than Tom? (See the above photo for answer.)

Not only did Craig's acting buddy Mark Strong reveal he thinks the blue eyed star has "come to an end" with his time as 007, but most recently, it was rumored the 48-year-old turned down nearly $100 million to return for two more movies!
Well now we have some new info that seems to confirm Daniel leaving — because he'll be WAY too busy to take on the role!
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 after signing on to star in a new TV show, and hearing Mark Strong's comments about Craig playing Bond, Daily Mail reports that the actor has actually turned down £68 million — or just under $100 million — from MGM studios to return as Bond for two more flicks!
This extremely HUGE deal would have included endorsements, profit shares as well as a co-producing role.
As for why the Craig turned down the offer, one L.A. film source dished:
GQ is back at it again with their list of the Thirteen Most Stylish Men in the World Right Now!
We're ready to swoon!
Leading the pack of suave heartbreakers is none other than Tom Hardy, who goes from wearing three-piece suits with pocket squares to cargo pants and graphic tees without skipping a beat.
Seriously, look at some of his past outfits and it's like he can either be super formal or super casual. No in-betweens!
GQ editors call him "a total rake who wrings every drop of mojo out of a three-piece Gucci suit." That's poetry.
The other sexy men in the group are Idris Elba (duh!), Ryan Reynolds, Future, Drake, Harry Styles, Odell Beckham Jr, teenage model Lucky Blue Smith, Russell Westbrook, Aziz Ansari, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Diplo, and Eddie Redmayne.
Drool over all of them in the gallery (above)!

Ever since the tragic and unforgettable disbandment of One Direction, we've been wondering what our favorite British boy banders would be up to next.
And while Harry Styles has been reportedly gearing up to record his debut solo album like Zayn Malik, it looks like his career could be going in a completely different direction — becoming a movie star!
That's right! Harry has just joined the cast of Christopher Nolan's upcoming film Dunkirk, after a reportedly VERY extensive search for the film's younger leads.
Wow — not a bad gig for his first role!
It looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of Harry soon enough!
What do YOU think about the singer's big break as an actor?
