Tom Hiddleston is SO flattered that fans want him to play James Bond


We all know that British actor Tom Hiddleston is devastatingly handsome and effortlessly debonair so it's really no wonder that fans are angling for him to play James Bond in the next instalment of films. 

Rumours have been flying for months now that Spectre would in fact be Daniel Craig's last film in the series, leaving the covetable part up for grabs. 

And it really is no surprise that Tom's name is on everyone's lips (well no surprise to everyone but him).

"I don't know honestly if I have a shot, but it's flattering that some people think I do," said the 35-year-old to E! News. 

"I think Daniel Craig has been one of the very best and I bet he [will do] more."

Despite not being convinced that Daniel is leaving, the actor holds a special appreciation for Bond movies. 

"When I was a child, when I was five years old, I remember very clearly on the BBC, they used to play reruns of the Sean Connery and Roger Moore Bonds every Saturday night. 

"It was a thrill that my parents let me stay up past my bedtime to watch it. God forbid you got back to school on Monday and you didn't because that's all people would talk about in the playground."

And it seems that Tom is even well seasoned for the role as he plays a British spy in the upcoming film, the Night Manager. 

Irish actor Aidan Turner has also been rumoured to be in the running for the Bond role (if it's even up for grabs that is).
