A very unexpected result was recorded by British bookmakers accepting bets on possible performers of the role of James Bond, who in the future may take the place of Daniel Craig.
According to Entertainment Weekly, British actor Damian Lewis, familiar to viewers from the Homeland TV series and the feature movie Dreamcatcher, has become the absolute leader. The bets on his candidacy are made in a 6/4 ratio, which is significantly more than on other likely candidates like Idris Elba or Tom Hardy. Naturally, this does not mean that the Rodina star is the leader in the list of Bond producers' preferences, but it is quite possible that they will pay attention to the audience's expectations.
Recall that, according to the results of the vote, held by the Cinema News portal, the main contender for the role of agent 007 was British actor Matthew Goode, who has experience in both chamber productions and large-scale Hollywood projects with an abundance of brawls and special effects.
Daniel Craig will most likely play James Bond in two more episodes of Bond, the 24th of which, entitled "007: Specter", will be presented to viewers in November 2015.
As for Lewis, in 2015 viewers could see him in the series "Wolf Hall", in which he got the role of the English monarch.
