Is Aaron Taylor-Johnson the next James Bond?
If reports are to be believed, the hunt to find the next 007 may be over.
Daniel Craig, who played the iconic character between 2006 and 2021, is all set to be replaced by another English actor, and apparently, Tenet actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson is the front-runner for the role.
We hear Aaron secretly auditioned for the role last September and Bond franchise Producer Barbara Broccoli loved him.

Aaron started acting at the age of six. He first appeared in a London production of Macbeth alongside British actor Rufus Sewell.
As a child artist, Aaron went to star in several Hollywood films including The Apocalypse, Tom & Thomas, Shanghai Knights and The Illusionist.
In 2009, Aaron won his first award (Empire Award for Best Newcomer) for playing John Lennon in the biographical drama Nowhere Boy, directed by Sam Taylor-Wood.
It was a role where Daniel Day Lewis gave him a great tip.
‘Young Lennon obviously wasn’t singing the songs by The Beatles, so who were his influences? Who was he listening to? Daniel Day-Lewis said that in order to find your characters you have to sniff around. You have to find their scent,’ Aaron is quoted as telling Variety.
Aaron was reportedly 18-19 at the time while she was 42.
They have two daughters, Wylda Rae (born in 2010) and Romy Hero (2012).
In 2010, the 32 year old got his big break in the superhero superhit, Kick-Ass. There’s been no looking back since.
Aaron has since starred in blockbusters like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Godzillaand Avengers: Age of Ultron, gaining the most prominence in Avengers, where he played Quicksilver.
In 2017, Taylor-Johnson won his first Golden Globe Award in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role in Nocturnal Animals.
Aaron’s last outing was David Leitch’s action comedy Bullet Train, co-starring Brad Pitt. Aaron will be seen next in Kraven The Hunter and The Fall Guy.

Aaron, in fact, is happy to be on Brad’s ‘good list’ as opposed to the ‘shit list’ that the actor has of people he doesn’t want to work with ever again, according to Variety.
Though several actors have been in talks with the Bond producers, only Aaron ended up giving an audition for Ian Fleming’s spy.
