The past sixty years have seen several actors grace our screens playing the role of James Bond, from Sean Connery to David Niven, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig of 2006’s Casino Royale.

Craig’s role as James Bond saw him feature in 2006’s Casino Royale, 2008’s Quantum of Solace, 2012’s Skyfall, 2015’s Spectre, and 2021’s No Time to Die.

Unfortunately, Daniel Craig left the 007 fans shocked after the actor announced that 2021’s No Time to Die would be his last James Bond film. He remains the most long-serving and, arguably, most captivating Agent 007 to have graced the screen.

Now fans are eagerly anticipating, speculating, and predicting who the next Agent 007 could be. MightyTips takes a look at the hot favourites to replace Daniel Craig based on the next James Bond odds.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson - Odds 2/1

Aaron Taylor-Johnson currently stands as the hot favourite to take over from Daniel Craig. The young British actor meets the requirements the movie producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, have set for this role—under 40, young, and physical.

The 33-year-old had his breakthrough in the industry when he featured in Nowhere Boy before playing action roles in Bullet Train, Godzilla, and Kick-Ass.

With his next James Bond actor odds at 2/1, bookmarkers with the highest odds can all confirm the James Bond role is all but his to lose.

Henry Cavill - Odds 7/2

Henry Cavill is a Jersey-born actor who's played a role in Mission Impossible. He's also played the role of Superman in superhero movies, but news hit the media in 2018 about his intention to end his participation in the DC series.

Henry Cavill has the look and physique to play the role of James Bond perfectly. With his next 007 odds of 7/2, could he be the next James Bond?

Damson Idris - Odds 9/2

The 32-year-old British actor is well-known in the movie industry. He gained popularity when he starred as Franklin Saint—a lead role in Snowfall, which was released in 2017.

Damson Idris’ acting versatility has earned him prominence in the industry. He's since appeared in 2018’s Farming, 2021’s Outside the Wire, and The Harder They Fall.

Could he be the next Agent 007? The odds aren't in his favour. However, who can tell with 9/2 James Bond next actor odds that he might surprise us all?

James Norton - Odds 5/1

James Norton is a 38-year-old English actor who's well-known for his roles in TV shows. James has starred in TV shows such as Happy Valley, Granchester, and McMafia.

Rumour has it that he could be the chosen one because he was seen talking with Daniel Craig at 2023’s Wimbledon men’s final.

We’d have to wait to see whether his new James Bond odds of 5/1 would make him the next Agent 007.

Rege-Jean Page - Odds 6/1

Rege-Jean Page has had a meteoric rise to fame in the movie industry. He gained prominence when he appeared in the Netflix drama Bridgerton, playing the Duke of Hastings.

The 36-year-old Londoner has become one of the most talked about and has earned a place in the top 5 to take over from Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.

Sope Dirisu - Odds 8/1

If you've seen Gangs of London, you would know why Sope Dirisu is on the list of people who could be the next James. The 33-year-old actor graced our screen with the physical appearance and action necessary to be the next James Bond.

He's played prominent roles in a series of films, such as starring as Elliot Carter in Gangs of London and also playing the main character in Mr. Malcolm’s List.

At 33, there's no doubt that he's young and has time on his side if he's determined to be the next James Bond.

Tom Hardy - Odds 9/1

There's a reason Tom Hardy is among the favourites to be the next James Bond. He's got the roguery and charisma to play the role to perfection.

We've seen his action chops in movies like Mad Max: Fury Road and The Dark Knight Rises, where he showed the physical qualities needed for the James Bond role.

When it comes to taking over from Daniel Craig, his only weakness is his age. It’s been reported that James Bond producers would prefer under-40s. Hardy is nearing his 50s, and this could prove difficult for him should the producers need someone for the long term.

Callum Turner - Odds 10/1

And finally, we've got Callum Turner! His name hit the media in the course of speculations about who could take over from Daniel Craig. When asked about his intention to take on the role, Callum Turner turned the rumours into humour by crediting the speculation to his mother’s passionate support.

Turner has shown his admiration for the Bond producer but has yet to commit to being fully ready to portray the famous role.

And with his odds on the next James Bond currently at 10/1, it confirms that he's not the top favourite. But let's see what the future holds for Turner, as things could change in a day.

James Bond — Next 007 Betting Odds

Several names have surfaced online about becoming the next James Bond. While we're waiting for the chosen one, let's look at the next James Bond betting odds for those who would like to wager on their favourite.

  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson - 2/1
  • Henry Cavill - 7/2
  • Damson Idris - 9/2
  • James Norton - 5/1
  • Rege-Jean Page - 6/1
  • Sope Dirisu - 8/1
  • Tom Hardy - 9/1
  • Callum Turner - 10/1


Daniel Craig has long confirmed his intention to end his role as James Bond. Now, the search continues about a potential successor  to Daniel Craig. While we're yet to see the chosen one, Aaron Taylor-Johnson currently remains the favourite. However, we shouldn't rule out others on this list, as anything can happen.
