From Mr. Paris to Mr. Bond — that appears to be the trajectory Lucien Laviscount is perhaps on … in case you imagine the stories that he is within the working as the following 007.
The British actor — well-known for his recurring function on Netflix's ‘Emily in Paris’ — is claimed to have captured the eye of film producer Barbara Broccoli … who additionally holds the rights to the James Bond franchise, and who's in the hunt for a brand new agent to exchange Daniel Craig.
In keeping with the Each day Mail … his work in ‘EIP’ — the place he performs the primary character's love curiosity, Alfie — is what landed him as a frontrunner for the job. He is been on for two seasons.
DM cites one purported insider as saying, “Lucien ticks the entire containers. He's a brilliant gifted actor, is extraordinarily good-looking and up to now 18 months has received plenty of new followers since he joined Emily In Paris. Bond bosses are already saying how one can see him within the 007 tuxedo, how dapper and becoming to the function he'll look.”
The factor that may harm him, apparently … his time on ‘Superstar Huge Brother,’ on which he competed in 2011. In keeping with this supply, the Bond producers suppose it is low forehead stuff not becoming of a Bond actor, although they're supposedly nonetheless fairly excessive on him on the whole.
The opposite fascinating tidbit popping out of this report … Broccoli is claimed to have greenlit stunt work testing over at Pinewood Studios, the place they've shot a number of Bond content material. If true, that may imply they're ramping as much as begin the following chapter post-Craig/'No Time to Die.’
There'd been rumblings that Idris Elba was being thought of to play the following Bond, however frankly … he is too outdated, and Lucien matches the invoice for what Broccoli and co. have lately stated they need of their subsequent iteration of the character. A younger whippersnapper, that's.
We'll say this … Lucien's undoubtedly acquired the look down. Good-looking, match and pure class. All the best stuff that makes Bond a world heartthrob.
This is hoping the Bond honchos determine it out earlier than later. The hole between Pierce Brosnan and Craig (4 years) was longer than any interval from earlier actors — that means, when one man left … the opposite slid in somewhat seamlessly in a matter of a yr or two.
‘No Time to Die’ got here out over a yr in the past, and we're already on to 2023. Let's transfer it!
