King Arthur: Legend of the Sword actor has said that he’s qualified to play the role of 007 agent James Bond. He made this statement while in a press release for his latest film.
“I can say two things. I’m English and I look devilishly handsome in a suit. I can say three things…and nobody has called me about playing James Bond, so I’m pretty sure that’s not going to happen. … If you (Conan O’Brien) decide not to do it, you can just throw your ol’ pal Charlie’s name in the hat.”
If nothing else, his statements are true, but perhaps he might be given a chance to fill up those shoes after Daniel Craig officially exits the role. However, that is unlikely now with recent reports of Barbara Broccoli convincing the actor to return. Interestingly, it’s worth noting that Charlie Hunnam will be added to a list of potential actors to play bond after Mr Craig’s era.
