Bond director, Sam Mendes, recently hinted that the next James Bond would be unexpected.
Aidan Turner, who also appeared in The Hobbit, has seen a flurry of bets being placed and Ladbrokes, who have been shortening his odds for a while now, has made Aidan clear 1/2 favourite, pushing out recent ‘shoe-in’, Tom Hiddleston to 2/1. Turner started at 50/1 and has seen his odds tumble
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said:
007 fever is at full throttle. We’ve had as many favourites as Bond has had vodka martinis, and if the money’s on the nose then it’s only a matter of time before Turner, Aidan Turner is leading the way to step into Daniel Craig’s shoes.”
Daniel Craig recently confirmed he would be stepping down from James Bond and there has been a neverending stream of potential new Bonds, including Gillian Anderson who has seen Twitter create numerous Bond memes in her name.
