Ex-James Bond actor George Lazenby says that Liam Hemsworth should play the next 007.
Lazenby, who took over for Sean Connery as the famous spy, told TMZ that he thinks Hemsworth deserves the next spot for various reasons.
Firstly, the 83-year-old claims that the actor’s career proves that he is worthy of the top spot and that he could handle the media attention, as he has a history of acting in leading roles.
George himself was the youngest actor to take on the role of Bond, being only 29-years-old at the time. He believes that 32-year-old Liam Hemsworth could handle the pressure of the role.
George and Liam are also both from Australia – considering that every Bond has been under the British crown and that Australia is a British Commonwealth nation, the legend claims that a “good-looking Aussie dude” like Hemsworth would be perfect for the role.
He also claims that, following Daniel Craig will leave pretty big shoes to fill and the actor who takes over needs to be “crazy enough, arrogant enough, confident enough, ambitious enough to take on the role”.
