Next James Bond: Henry Golding responds to reports of 007 casting.
JAMES BOND NEXT: After No Time To Die, Daniel Craig’s run as 007 is coming to an end. After rumors about his casting appeared, Snake Eyes star Henry Golding spoke out about the potential of joining the franchise.
Golding’s action-packed comic-book thriller Snake Eyes, in which he plays the eponymous character, was recently published. Despite the fact that the actor has become highly well-known in his own right, James Bond fans have been expecting him to step in for Daniel Craig after the release of No Time To Die next month.
Golding was recently asked whether he would prefer to continue his Snake Eyes adventure or take on the role of James Bond.
“Finding the correct materials to apply,” he said. You have to understand that when you commit to a project, you are committing to play this role for six months, if not a whole year of your life.
“And it has various excursions for that function at times.” (By subway)
“Commitment is obviously something that is important for IP [intellectual properties], like Bond, like Snake Eyes, like anything like that,” Golding continued, referring to the prospect of joining the Bond franchise.
“However, who knows? It’s exciting to know that things are going to change, and I’m looking forward to seeing where Snake Eyes takes me.”
Despite the fact that the Crazy Rich Asians star skirted the issue, his reaction is considerably different from what he said last month in response to a similar inquiry.
“I guess they are searching for another candidate,” Golding remarked in July when asked about the position. “Of course, any decent sort of man would want to put their hand up for it.”
“So sure, let’s talk,” he added slyly.
Golding had already spoken out against Bond.
“It’s an honor to even be in the [Bond] conversation,” the 34-year-old British-Malaysian actor remarked in September.
“You’d be stupid to say, ‘I don’t want to do that s**t,’ because it’s one of the best film parts ever.’
“It’d be the wildest journey I’ve ever been on. I’m really looking forward to seeing Daniel Craig’s final film… But isn’t it wonderful that we’re having this discussion?”
“Isn’t it wonderful that people are saying, ‘OK, now is the moment, why the hell can’t we have a Black Bond, an Asian Bond, a mixed-race Bond, a non-distinct Bond?’” Golding continued.
The actor is able to stand. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
