“He has to have a great physique”: Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’ is Out of James Bond Race, Henry Cavill Fits Casting Director’s All Requirements
The hunt for the next James Bond has officially begun as the creators are on the lookout for an actor who can accurately portray the iconic British Secret Service agent. The role of James Bond was previously played by Daniel Craig, who starred in five movies: Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), Spectre (2015), and No Time to Die (2021). These films were massive hits, and Craig’s performance was highly praised by fans.
With Daniel Craig stepping away from the James Bond franchise, the casting directors are now searching for a new actor to take on the role. In the past, there were rumors circulating about Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, potentially playing James Bond. However, a James Bond casting director, who has been responsible for selecting actors in the past, previously dismissed these rumors.
According to the casting director, Dwayne Johnson will not be playing James Bond. The director emphasized that the chosen actor needs to possess a great physique, among other requirements. Despite being a highly successful and popular actor, it seems that Johnson does not meet all the necessary criteria set by the casting director for the role of James Bond.
Instead, another actor who fits the casting director’s requirements is Henry Cavill. Cavill is known for his roles in movies such as Man of Steel and Mission: Impossible – Fallout. He has garnered attention for his physicality and has been praised for his performances in action-packed films, making him a potential contender to take on the iconic role of James Bond.
As the search for the next James Bond continues, fans eagerly await the announcement of the actor who will bring the beloved character to life on the big screen once again.
