Apparently the makers behind James Bond will be shaking things up a bit by replacing Daniel Craig as 007, and they’re causing quite a stir with the latest candidate in the mix.

Their name? Lewis. Damian Lewis.

Until now, our money was on the dashing Idris Elba, who seemed all ready to get suited and booted to play the smooth talking spy. But thanks to new 4/1 odds at Betfair, rumor has it that Damian Lewis (aka brooding war veteran Nicholas Brody from Homeland – swoon!) may be in line to take the 007 bullet proof throne.


A spokesperson from Betfair has commented on the sudden drop in odds for Lewis to play the new James Bond, saying, ‘Damian Lewis hadn’t seen any interest in the betting until this weekend, but an absolute landslide in bets has forced us to cut the odds’.

Does Damian Lewis have a license to thrill like previous Bonds Pierce Brosnan or Roger Moore? Who was your favourite Bond of all time?
