Peaky Blinders star tipped as the next 007

Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy has been linked to be the next James Bond.

He would be the second Irish actor to take on the role – Pierce Brosnan played 007 in four films from 1995 to 2002.

Murphy also faces competition from fellow Irishman and Poldark hero Aidan Turner.

A reluctant Murphy thought, however, there was little chance of him landing the job.

He said: “It seems to be a way of generating business for bookies.

“So, someone who happens to be in a TV show and wears a tux occasionally is the next Bond.

“Having said all of that, it’s incredibly flattering to be in that conversation.

“However, I think it should be a woman [next].”

In the meantime, Daniel Craig is still 007 and appears in his final Bond picture “No Time to Die” in April 2020.
