For his part, Hardy has in the past says he’s interested in taking on the role.
Speaking to The Daily Beast a little while back, he was asked about Bond rumors to which he responded: “If I mention it, it’s gone. You know, there’s a saying amongst us in the fraternity of acting, and in the fellowship of my peer group, that if you talk about it you’re automatically out of the race. So I can’t possibly comment on that one”.
