Henry Cavill 😍

Didn't he say that being Bond was one of his dreams? Or was it just my imagination? 😂

But yeah, seems unlikely with how many films and TV series he is involved.

Yes, he definitely wants to be Bond, and made it to the final casting round for Casino Royale back in 2005 alongside Daniel Craig (Goran Višnjić, Alex O'Loughlin, Julian McMahon, Ewan McGregor, Rupert Friend, and Anthony Star had previously been eliminated in earlier casting rounds, while Karl Urban wanted to audition but had a prior filming commitment which prevented him from doing a screentest). Ultimately it was decided that Henry Cavill was too young to play Bond at the time (he was just 22, 7 years younger than the previously youngest Bond, George Lazenby) so they went with 37 year old Daniel Craig. He also has a funny story to tell about the casting process for Casino Royale, one of his screentests was a towel scene, Martin Campbell, the director, told him he was looking a little chubby during the towel scene, and he took the criticism very seriously and got the ripped physique he is known for today.

Cavill stated just recently that he still wants to play Bond or basically any role in a Bond movie.

They always pick someone who isn't a big celebrity already.
So who would I like to see play James Bond next? Someone I haven't even thought of. Surprise me please! I will actually be disappointed if they pick someone I have already imagined in the role, such as Fassbender or Elba.

lmao, thanks Martin Campbell for that comment if it meant ripped Henry 😂

I guess he will most likely end up as a Bond villain.

I was thinking that, but then I realised it's because he already did that role in another high profile spy series. It would just seem derivative doing it again.



Good riddance. Never like Craig as Bond.
