With Daniel Craig leaving the iconic role of James Bond, the conversation of who will fill the role next has started to hit a fever pitch.

Avengers and Thor actor Tom Hiddleston is well accustomed to espionage, as his role in BBC's The Night Manager can attest to. Due to his work in that series, there has been buzz that he would make a great Bond. Jimmy Kimmel recently asked him if we would want to be James Bond if the opportunity came up.

"I mean, as somebody who grew up with Sean Connery and Roger Moore, when you mention that there is a part of me that goes really? are you kidding? But I feel like who's going to be the next James Bond is, it's one of the nation's favorite pub conversations. It's up there with who is going to win X-Factor and when is the England National side going to live up to its full potential, and is Britain going to leave the E.U. and all that thing."


During the conversation, he seemed very humbled by all of the interest, and while he gave a good answer, he seemed to be leaning towards a no on being Bond. Hopefully, we will hear who will be filling the role very soon.
