James Bond star Naomie Harris has thrown her support behind Cillian Murphy to step into Daniel Craig’s shoes and become the next 007 agent. The Miss Moneypenny actress has given the Peaky Blinders star her blessing to take over the role, when Craig steps down from the franchise after the next film. While a number of A-list names have been thrown into the mix, including James Norton and Idris Elba, it seems that Harris already has a firm favourite.
Following yesterday’s news that seemingly confirmed Ellie Goulding was recording the theme song for ‘SPECTRE’, a surprising new name has been thrown into the mix. Moody indie rockers Radiohead are now said to be the bookies favourite to record the next James Bond theme song after a huge bet was reportedly placed on the Oxford band. A spokesperson for William Hill told the MailOnline: “We can confirm that someone did enter one of our shops requesting to place a £15k bet on Radiohead at odds of 10/1. On top of that, we have seen loads of smaller bets that have forced the odds down to 6/4 from 10/1.″ - Movie Poster Photoshop Fails - Channing Tatum Quits Gambit? - Incredibly Awkward Interview “A gamble like this suggests that an announcement could be coming soon whether it be Radiohead or another artist.” Goulding seemed like a likely contender after she shared an Instagram photo of herself leaving Abbey Road Studios - the same location Adele recorded the Oscar-winning ‘Skyfall’ theme - with the caption “That’s a wrap”.
