Loki star is punter fancy for 007 role

Sunday Mail (UK) - - Opinion -

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
