007 pun­ters putting few quid on Hidd

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY KAREN ROCKETT

BOOK­IES have slashed the odds on Tom Hid­dle­ston be­ing the next James Bond after a flurry of bets.

Night Man­ager star Tom, 37, is now 9/4 sec­ond favourite be­hind Body­guard ac­tor Richard Mad­den, 32, at 6/4.

The bets have come off the back of Hid­dle­ston con­firm­ing he will be repris­ing his role as Loki, the god of mis­chief, in a new Marvel TV se­ries.

Coral’s Harry Aitken­head said: “Hid­dle­ston’s Marvel role might be a mil­lion miles from 007 but it’s an­other re­minder of his act­ing skills. He’s a lead­ing can­di­date to fol­low in Daniel Craig’s foot­steps.”

Idris Elba is 6/1, ahead of 12/1 shots Tom Hardy, James Nor­ton and Cil­lian Mur­phy, with Poldark star Ai­dan Turner at 16/1.
