Taron Egerton would love to be the next James Bond.
The 27-year-old actor, who has been touted as a possible replacement for Daniel Craig as 007, has admitted he wouldn’t have any hesitation accepting the role if it was offered to him.
Asked whether he’d be interested in the part of Bond, Taron replied: “If I was asked, yeah. Amazing. Amazing – of course!”
Taron plays the role of Eggsy, a Kingsman secret agent, in the Matthew Vaughn-directed movies and he believes Eggsy is a nice “alternative” to the more slick Bond.
He told the Daily Mail newspaper: “I don’t know how much better [Eggsy] is … I think he’s quite a nice alternative.
“Bond is, you know, eternally super cool and clean cut and sharp. Eggsy is too, but Eggsy doesn’t always get it right.
“I think that’s the fun of Eggsy. He’s not quite formed yet. Maybe one day he’ll be James Bond but, for now, he isn’t.”
