After much speculation it was announced this week that Grammy winner Sam Smith will be the artist to take over the latest Bond theme song.
Writing’s On The Wall is to be released later this month. However, there is still plenty of speculation surrounding who will be cast as the next leading man himself.
David Beckham has apparently become a favourite of the public. Since his latest foray into the acting world in pal Guy Ritchie’s latest film, fans have been eager to see him take on the famous 007 role.
There was also much controversy when actor Idris Elba was deemed ‘too street’ by Bond author Anthony Horowitz.
“For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.”
He later apologised for his remarks and said he was “mortified to have caused offence.” On his own Instagram page Idris posted a screenshot of the article the remark appeared in with the caption: “Always keep smiling!! It takes no energy and never hurts! Learned that from the Street!!”
Now it seems that one pop star fancies herself as the one to step into the secret agent’s shoes.
Posting a selfie on her Instagram page as she flexed in the mirror, Ellie joked she was very excited to reveal that she was the next Bond.
The singer is already the face of a Nike campaign, and she has the abs to prove it. Dressed in a sports bra and tiny black shorts (Nike, naturally), the star looks incredibly fit as she shows off her hard earned physique.
Not that we’re all that surprised seeing as she’s been keeping busy all summer long as she performs on the summer festival circuit. However, a performance scheduled for October seems to have caused some issues.
Ellie is supposed to perform at the AFL Grand Final in Melbourne, but organisers for the event have landed themselves in hot water after they booked mostly British acts instead of more local performers.
