Loki star is punter fancy for 007 role
Bookies have seen a flurry of bets on Tom Hiddleston being the next James Bond, forcing them to slash the odds to just 9- 4.
The bets follow Hiddleston, 37, confirming he will be reprising his role as the god of mischief in a new Marvel TV series based on Loki.
He is now second favourite to be the next Bond behind Bodyguard star Richard Madden, who is 6- 4.
Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Hiddleston’s Marvel role might be a million miles away from the world of 007 but it’s going to be another reminder of his acting skills and punters are backing him to be the next Bond.
“He’s one of the leading candidates according to our odds and he’s definitely in with a chance of following in Daniel Craig’s footsteps.”
GOOD BET Tom
