Even though Daniel Craig is reportedly signing up Bond 25, Chris Hemsworth reveales that he knows who should play the role once the British actor finishes that martini: Charlize Theron.
“She embodies every ounce of strength and nobility and dignity and integrity that that character should have,” Hemsworth shared to W magazine during an interview about Theron’s latest film, “Atomic Blonde.”
There’s been rumors that Craig may not return to the role of 007. “We’re all done. All I want to do is move on” Craig had revealed. Not long ago, Ian McKellan said he’d love to see a gay Bond, and he thought that the series’ author Ian Fleming would support the idea. And Hemsworth thinks casting directors should look no further than Theron.
“She’s smart as hell. She’s physically able. Ya know watching her in those fight scenes, doing it in high heels by the way and 8-foot long gown [in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’], was even more impressive,” Hemsworth shared. “And I just think why not? It’s time.”
Moreover, Theron responded.
“Wow, that’s just so insanely generous and nice. I don’t even know what to do with that,” Theron said of Hemsworth’s comments. “That’s really sweet.”
