Next James Bond: Henry Golding responds to 007 casting rumours
What do you think? Would Henry Golding make a good James Bond? Join the debate in the comments section here
Golding was recently asked whether he would like to continue his journey in the Snake Eyes universe or take on the 007 role.
He replied: “It’s finding the right materials to apply. You got to understand when you lock yourself in on any project, it could be six months, it could be an entire year of your life that you dedicate to playing this role.
“And sometimes it has multiple excursions for that role.” (Via Metro)

Golding went on to address the possibility of joining the Bond franchise, adding: “Commitment is definitely something that’s necessary for IP [intellectual properties], like Bond, like Snake Eyes, like anything like that.
“So who knows? It’s exciting to know that there’s going to be change, and I’m really intrigued as to see where Snake Eyes leads me.”
Although the Crazy Rich Asians star dodged the question, his response is quite different from what he said to a similar question last month.
When asked about the role in July, Golding said: “I guess they are looking for another candidate, so, of course, any right sort of man would want to put their hand up for it.”
He slyly added: “So sure, let’s talk.”
Golding added: “Isn’t it great that people are like: ‘OK, now’s the time, why the hell can’t we have a Black Bond, an Asian Bond, a mixed-race Bond, a non-distinct Bond?'”
The actor does stand a good chance of grabbing the 007 role from Craig going forward.
Ladbrokes have awarded the actor 20/1 on claiming the prestigious role.
The firm’s Alex Apati said: “Henry Goulding isn’t completely out of the race to replace Daniel Craig, but his most recent odds suggest it would come as something of a shock were 007 chiefs to opt for the Crazy Rich Asians star.”
