Is Taylor Swift using her powerful Hollywood connections to help Tom Hiddleston land the role of the next James Bond? Tom Hiddleston’s James Bond dreams might come true after all. There’s new speculation that the British actor might nab the lead role in the next ‘James Bond’ film, thanks to his girlfriend Taylor Swift and her Hollywood connections.
According to new reports (Page Six), Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift were in Los Angeles this past week to meet with James Bond producers about securing the role. Even though there were earlier reports indicating that Tom Hiddleston’s relationship with Taylor Swift and all of her personal drama might have lost him the role, it looks like the ‘Wildest Dreams’ singer is pulling a few string to make her boyfriend’s dreams happen.
Tom Hiddleston has long been considered to be one of the few actors in the running for the iconic role, alongside other Hollywood stars such as Jack Huston, Tom Hardy and Idris Elba. But now that Jack Huston and Tom Hardy are no longer being considered for the role, it’s been left to either Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba. But because some insiders believe Idris Elba may be “too old” to play James Bond, that leaves the role solely to Tom Hiddleston.
Plus, Taylor Swift might have some real interest in seeing her boyfriend star in the next James Bond movie. After all, that might help her own career, as the chart topper would definitely want to sing James Bond’s next theme song. Winning the opportunity to write, produce or sing on the track would definitely prove to the entertainment world that Taylor Swift is a force to be reckoned with. Not to mention that assisting Tom could help Taylor get out of his PR people’s bad books!
Yet, Hollywood insiders insist that James Bond producers are in no hurry to pick their next leading man, mostly because the distribution rights for the long-running franchise are currently up for sale. One source tells the New York Post’s Page Six, “No casting for the next James Bond movie will be decided on until the deal for the distribution rights has been done.”
Still, this isn’t going to stop Tom Hiddleston’s media campaign for the role he’s always dreamed of. All of the Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift romance rumors that are making tabloid headlines might be good attention at this point.
Plus, Tom Hiddleston is obviously ready to make the next move in his career, and if he needs Taylor Swift to help him reach A-list status, then it looks like HiddleSwift is definitely here to stay. What do you think, CDL readers?
