James Bond is eternal, only his avatars vary! The latest one is tipped off to be Sam Heughan, the Scottish-born actor. Having played Jamie on "Outlander," Sam Heughan is now known everywhere. A number of fans are convinced that he can step into the role of James Bond easily.
Being among the biggest stars on television at present, he has millions of fans all over the world. They are convinced that he is ideal for the role, according to Scotsman. Fans of the 36-year-old star are sure that he is the best for the role.
He wowed audiences with his "Outlander" role as Jamie Fraser. Heughan looks great fighting, and is a "dab-hand" even with the ladies, according to The Scottish Sun. Rumors whisper that he will be hooking up with co-star Caitriona Balfe in real life. These speculations are based on what his fans have seen for years. However, while no one really knows how far it is true, the two have definitely been going around with each other.
Right now, Sam Heughan does not seem to be in any other movie or show apart from "Outlander." Hence, he will be a big hit as the next Bond, it is surmised.
Still, there are competitors and other actors who are also in the running to be the next Bond. They make the speculation impossible to confirm. One of the rivals is Aiden Turner, who did not answer anything about the question in Britain's National Television Awards recently. Aidan Turner even refused to either confirm or deny his relationship with James Bond. Still, he sure seemed to light up when asked about it.
Other A-list stars include actors Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston, and Idris Elba and "Homeland" star Damien Lewis. There has not been any other news or rumor regarding the last selection for the super suave thriller star's role.
