The James Bond movie franchise is about to get shaken and stirred — because One Direction boy band member Harry Styles is angling to take over as the suave spy himself!
The pop star recently shocked his fans by cutting off his shoulder-length locks. The reason, though, is that 22-year-old Harry wants to take Hollywood by storm as the youngest James Bond ever!
Harry has already been cast in the upcoming WWII film “Dunkirk,” and he’s rumored to be a guest star on the second season of FOX’s “Scream Queens.”
Now, an insider told The National ENQUIRER: “Harry is ready to step into Daniel [Craig]’s shoes. He has been schmoozing all over Hollywood for the past year and he’s made it clear to anyone who will listen that James Bond is the role he most wants!”
“He’s making a convincing case that he can breathe new life into the aging franchise. Harry’s promising that he can draw in a whole new generation of viewers!”
The former James Bond doesn’t seem to mind the idea of a pop singer stepping into his shoes.
Daniel Craig even once said that One Direction member Niall Horan would be a good candidate for the role — and the insider said that Harry approached the star for his endorsement!
“Daniel has come around to Harry,” said the source.
“Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston and Leo DiCaprio have been thrown out as possible replacements — but if the producers really want to shake things up, Harry is their man!”
