James Bond is such an iconic character that it’s always big news when they need to recast the character.

Well now it looks like we might have a new frontrunner for the role once Daniel Craig steps down, possibly after Spectre!

Ireland-based online betting firm BoyleSports actually has odds posted on who is most likely to play the secret agent next!

While Henry Cavill is in fourth with 4/1 odds, and Damian Lewis is in third with 7/2, Elba snags the number two spot with 3/1. But surprisingly the number one spot — with 2/1 odds — actually goes to Tom Hardy!

Though he’d be a different kind of Bond, we could definitely get on board Hardy getting his secret agent on — especially over David Beckham who the site HIGHlariously lists at 250/1!
