A secret hideaway in a volcano? Approximately 1,130 vintage Aston Martins? What would you buy for £113 million? That is the question that Daniel Craig must be asking himself at this very moment, after reports that Sony has offered him $150,000,000 (that’s 113 million British smackers) to stay in the role for just two more movies.
Craig has been pretty clear in the past that he's done with the franchise. When Time Out's Dave Calhoun asked him last year if he was up for another Bond, the star was not exactly enthusiastic: ‘I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.’ But to be fair, that was four days after finishing a marathon eight-month shoot on ‘Spectre’ and his answer didn't rule it out in the future. And surely, enough money to buy a small Caribbean island is a tempting excuse.
We’d love to see Craig back in the role. He's the growliest, punchiest bond since Sean Connery, and a damn fine actor to boot. But we've also started thinking who we'd like to step into his Crockett & Jones loafers. Here are ten actors who could play Bond. And six women who would also be perfect.
