Daniel Craig’s last movie as James Bond, ‘No Time To Die’ was a blockbuster. As fans swayed by the swan song of Craig, they have begun wondering who could be selected by makers to play the next James Bond. Amidst all this, Ryan Reynolds sat to give an interview to The Times and expressed his hidden desire to play the next James Bond. He expressed his disappointment at the fact that the makers were considering other actors like Henry Cavill, Tom Hardy to play that role. However, he added that if they were looking to tweak the personality of James Bond, they can consider a Canadian James Bond sipping gin and tonic instead of martinis.
Reynolds was quoted as saying, “I hear they’re looking for a new Bond. Could you accept a Canadian sipping gin and tonic instead of a martini. If so, I’m interested”.
This news spread like wildfire and caught the ears of Cavill and many actors in competition to play Bond. Although a few days later, Reynolds clarified that he was remotely serious about what he said to The Times, fans still believe it was his way of letting the makers know that he is interested in playing the iconic character.
