There’s a new name in the mix to be the next actor to play the world’s best known secret agent.
His name is Damson Idris and according to the Online Betting Guide, he’s the current favourite to replace Daniel Craig at 2/1 odds.
Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who was previously considered a frontrunner, follow closely behind with odds of 3/1.
Henry Cavill, who originally went for the role against Craig, sits at 4/1 odds..
Idris Elba bowed out of the competition citing the reaction he received to being Black.
Damson Idris is a 31-year old British-Nigerian actor, best known for starring on the crime drama “Snowfall.”
