Shaken, not stirred! Let’s hope Rob likes martinis, because he might be leaving behind his fangs to pick up a gun and play 007, as current ‘Bond’ star, Daniel Craig, thinks he would make the perfect James Bond!
Robert Pattinson‘s career is going from strong — could he be leaving behind his vampire ways to become a suave international spy? The current James Bond star Daniel Craig is singing Rob’s acting praises, and according to a new report, he told Rob that he would “make a brilliant Bond.” Well, we know Rob looks good in a tuxedo! This could be a great career move for him, and funnily enough, Daniel previously said that Rob’s girlfriend and former co-star, Kristen Stewart, would “make a great Bond girl.” Read on to see why Daniel thinks Rob should be the next 007!
Robert Pattinson As The Next James Bond?
Daniel is lining up Rob as his replacement, as he plans to hang up his spy tools in the near future in order to start a family with his wife Rachel Weisz.
“Daniel told Rob he’d make a brilliant Bond and would like to see a young talented British actor take on the role,” a source tells OK! “Daniel’s signed on for two more Bond movies but is convinced he’ll do no more — for one thing, he hopes to start a family with Rachel soon and wants to focus on that.”
And apparently Rob is flattered! “He’s a monumental fan of Daniel’s and told him so, but he was completely taken aback when the compliments were returned,” says the source. And it looks like Daniel isn’t just impressed with Rob’s onscreen presence.
“Daniel really admires how Robert has handled the intense scrutiny of his personal life — he and Rachel are obsessively private,” says the source. “He really felt for Rob when Kristen Stewart’s cheating played out in the media. To go through that, but also maintain a level of professionalism and carry on working, shows amazing strength of character.”
Robert Wants To Play 007
It looks like Rob will go for the part! In the summer of 2012, Rob revealed in an interview that he would be up for playing the iconic English spy. “Yeah, I’d definitely go for Bond,” said Rob. And, Kristen has expressed interest in being a Bond girl! When asked if she would like to be one, Kristen said, “As long as I get to have a gun, yes, hell yeah!”
Might the Twilight couple reunite on the silver screen? We’ll keep you posted!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Rob play the international man of mystery?
