Aaron Taylor-Johnson Receives "Formal Offer" To Play James Bond

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has reportedly been offered the role of James Bond in the '007' franchise. According to The Sun, the 33-year-old actor is set to take over the role from Daniel Craig, who played the secret agent for 15 years. 'No Time To Die,' which was Craig’s last James Bond movie, was released in 2021. "Bond is Aaron’s job, should he wish to accept it. The formal offer is on the table and they are waiting to hear back. Aaron is going to sign his contract in the coming days," a source told The Sun. Following Craig’s retirement from the role, rumors have been circulating that Taylor-Johnson would step in. However, in a 2023 interview with Esquire, Taylor-Johnson stated that he had “to go by the beat of my own drum.” "It’s my own path, what feels intuitive to me,” said the 'Kraven the Hunter' star, who revealed he never makes decisions based on others' “expectations.”
