Theo James As The Next James Bond Because Of His Looks? Actor Details Experience And Education AttainmentBy Jane Reed, UniversityHerald Reporter
Notable names such as Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy are just some of the names that are being considered to become the next James Bond. But some fans are looking at a younger actor - Theo James.
He is the talk of the town but Theo James' experience speaks volumes. This English actor was born in 1984 and is best known for his role as Tobias in the Divergent series. The Oxford local attended Aylesbury Grammar school. He was in a lot of school plays and played a lot of music back then. He then earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Nottingham. He majored in Philosophy. To further amp up his acting skills, he attended the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. But actually, before he applied for drama school, he just did it for fun. He didn't expect that he'd get accepted.
At a young age, he already know how to perform and work for a living. According to Booms Beat, he is a singer and a guitarist for a London band called Shere Khan. But they are no longer playing the music scene and each member pursued their own careers. He also worked at the National Health Service in England. At one point, he even got a job as a lifeguard and a bartender.
Does he think he can do well to be the next James Bond? He did not release any comment on the 007 spy discussion. However, he is known to do accents like British, Scottish, Southern Irish and American. If he does get the job, or if he accepts it (if offered) then he can promote his ability to make a suave character. Aside from his Divergent "action packed" training, he also learned parkour because of his role in the Underworld. He does his own stunts too.
Early on, he says that he knew that he often gets a job because of his good looks. But internally, he hopes to keep the job because of how he acts and does well. Do you still think he'd make a good James Bond actor amidst the fans' petitions? What do you think he'd say?
