This publish accommodates dialogue of physique picture points.
Taron Egerton: suave man. You have seen him play a spy of types within the Kingsman movies; he positively is aware of his approach round espionage.
I imply, have a look at this image. It type of simply screams “James Bond,” does not it?
Certainly, Taron has a reasonably…Bond-esque approach of being, and should you’re on social media, you’ve got in all probability seen a number of folks say, “Hey, why cannot this man be the following James Bond?”
Not so quick, says Taron. The actor just lately gave an interview to the Telegraph (through Individuals), and he threw a 007-sized bucket of chilly water on the rumors that he’d even be focused on getting into Daniel Craig’s footwear.
“I do not suppose I am the best alternative,” Taron defined — and he went on to counsel that his reasoning has to do along with his personal physique picture.
“You need to be constantly statuesque to be that man,” he stated. “And that is one thing that I’m nonetheless striving for. I’ve all the time struggled with my weight.”
Now, let’s hold it actual — the concept it’s important to look a sure strategy to play James Bond is, on its face, ridiculous. I am probably not positive anybody has ever watched a James Bond movie and requested themselves, “Sure, however how a lot does he weigh?” It is simply not a factor, in any respect.
To be truthful, he additionally had different, much less absurd causes for not eager to tackle the position. Taron additionally defined that being Bond “is a bit like being a model ambassador in addition to being an actor.”
“And that could possibly be actually enjoyable in microcosm, however I am positive I learn that [producer] Barbara Broccoli stated that it is a 15-year dedication,” he stated.
However, like, let’s not get forward of ourselves — as a result of Taron himself says he isn’t even within the operating for the position, at this level at the least. “It is type of irrelevant how I really feel about it, anyway, as a result of I can inform you there have been zero telephone calls,” he stated.
We’ll see how this all seems!
