Daniel Craig has announced the next Bond film No time to Die will be his last outing as Bond . But who will be the new James Bond ?
Scottish star Heughan – best known for appearing in time-travel drama Outlander – is among the names regularly linked with the job. Outlander news from Outlander tours
Vin Diesel – who stars alongside Heughan in comic book movie Bloodshot – believes he is capable of filling Craig’s shoes.
He told the PA news agency: “Of course he’d make a good James Bond. He’d make a good anything.”
Before the release of 2015’s Spectre, his fourth 007 movie, Craig famously said he would rather “rather slash my wrists” than reprise the role.
Alongside 39-year-old Heughan, other actors mentioned as possible Craig replacements include The Bodyguard’s Richard Madden, McMafia’s James Norton and Luther’s Idris Elba.
Heughan plays a modified super soldier in Bloodshot and director David S F Wilson agreed with Diesel and said he would be a perfect fit for Bond.
“I would be there opening weekend for Sam as James Bond,” he said at the film’s premiere in Los Angeles.
“Sam is one of the nicest human beings I have ever worked with. Consummate professional, everybody loves him, very gracious with his talents.
“He’s a lovely, lovely gentleman and if he should make the cut I will be there opening weekend, for sure.”
Wilson added: “When we were casting, I was a big fan of Sam’s to begin with, and his audition tape was just there with everyone else’s, which was bizarre to me. He didn’t even have to audition, he was just on the list of people I wanted in my movie.”
Bloodshot is set to arrive in UK cinemas on March 13.
