I’d be a very boyish Bond: Egerton
Actor Taron Egerton (right) has not ruled out playing James Bond on the silver screen in the future, but thinks he needs “a little bit more wear in his face” first. “I think most people would love to do it but I expect I need a little bit more wear in my face before I do that. I’d be a very boyish Bond, wouldn’t I? So there's certainly no truth to that at the moment,” Egerton said, reported femalefirst.co.uk.
The 27-year-old actor has fulfilled one of his acting dreams by starring in animated film Sing alongside actors like Scarlett Johansson, Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon. He added: “I genuinely promise and swear on anything the singing was all me. And the same goes for everyone. I think that’s why they cast people who could sing. It’s been an ambition of mine before I even wanted to act to be involved in animation. I used to draw and make plastic figurines and watch Wallace and Gromit films. So, to be part of an animated film like this was really a dream of mine.”
He is keen to follow actor Hugh Jackman by doing both acting and singing. “He is very much an actor and singer. I’d love it if people thought of me like that. I love singing as much as I love acting,” he said.
