Former Bond star Pierce Brosnan, on Tuesday, gave Aaron Taylor Johnson his blessing to be the next James Bond. “The man has talent, chops and charisma,” he said. Rumours have been swirling about him being chosen as the next 007. While fans eagerly await as to who might don the mantle, here are actors we would like to see taking over from Daniel Craig.

Idris Elba

We think it will be great to have a Bond of African heritage. The English actor is best known for his role as a detective in the series, Luther. With his rugged good looks, he would make for a stylish bond for sure.

Tom Hiddleston

Former Loki star Tom Hiddleston, with his charm and mystic demeanour could easily play Bond. Also, who can forget his portrayal as a former military man in The Night Manager?

Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan, about a month ago, said he would make a great Bond villain. But, we think King Khan would make a great Bond. Also, the first Asian Bond-- wouldn't that be great?

Henry Cavill

Superman star Cavill, with his strong jawline and dark eyes, could definitely play Bond. Also, he recently starred in a fun spy film, Argylle as the titular character.

Richard Madden

Madden rose to stardom after he played Robb Stark in the series, Game of Thrones. He has then done roles as an Army man in Bodyguard and a spy in Citadel. We think Madden could be the right fit.

Bradley Cooper

Cooper, known for his roles in the Hangover films, A Star is Born and Serena, is a stellar actor. To see the actor in an action flick would be spectacular.
