Michael Fassbender responds to James Bond rumours

The actor has long been tipped for the role


Michael Fassbender has denied reports that he’ll be the next James Bond.

The 41-year-old has long been a contender to replace Daniel Craig as the iconic 007 agent, but Michael has no interest in taking on the major role.

When asked about the Bond speculation, Michael told British GQ, “I just love Bond. Doesn’t everyone? I grew up with him. It’s always a fun conversation to have.”

“But Bond should be someone in their early 20s. You’d have thought I was out of the bookies by now.”


The Kerry native also suggested producers should consider a female Bond.

“I always thought Bond should be British, but let’s get an American in or maybe someone like Jack O’Connell would be good, or even better, how about Jane Bond? A woman,” he said.

“One thing is for sure, it won’t be anyone on the bookies’ lists. It never is.”

A number of stars have long been tipped to portray the next James Bond, including Michael, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and Aidan Turner.
