Britain's biggest bookmaker, William Hill, have shortened the odds on Aidan Turner becoming the next James Bond for the second day in a row, from 33/1 to 10/1.
William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said. 'Poldark is making Darcy look like a dandy. We believe Aidan can write his own ticket after this,'
Music News reports the William Hill odds for the next James Bond as: 2/1 Idris Elba, 9/2 Tom Hardy, 6/1 Henry Cavill, 13/2 Michael Fassbender, 8/1 Jamie Dornan, 10/1 Aidan Turner, 10/1 Orlando Bloom, 10/1 Richard Armitage, 14/1 Dan Stevens, 16/1 Daniel Day-Lewis, 16/1 Gerard Butler, 16/1 James McAvoy, 20/1 Tom Hiddlestone, 25/1 Damian Lewis, 25/1 Sam Worthington, 33/1
I first heard Aidan touted as 'the next James Bond' by an Irish theatre reviewer back in 2006 who had seen him on stage in Cyrano. So at last it seems the world is catching up with how terrific an actor Aidan is.
