I wont lie. I wasn’t familiar with Aaron Taylor Johnson prior to his being mentioned as a top choice for the next chapter in the Bond movies.
The actor has been in several high profile films. Kick Ass, Quick Silver in the Avengers and most recently in Bullet Train with Brad Pitt. But the chance to take over a franchise is every actors dream.
Aaron is said to have impressed producer Barbara Broccoli during an audition at Pinewood Studios, where many of the franchise’s films have been filmed.
A source told The Sun: ‘Aaron went for a screen test to be the next Bond in September and producers and Barbara loved him. He is now one of the front-runners.’
He’s a pretty unconventional looking for Bond, but I guess anything works.
