If there’s one actor who has won the heart of millions with his sheer innocence and charm, its Spider-Man star Tom Holland. The actor who stepped into some pretty big boots when he decided to play the webbed superhero was an absolute joy to watch on-screen and his chemistry with Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark was superb.
Now, Tom Holland has said that he’d love to shake it up and play James Bond.
However, the 24-year-old noted that at 5′ feet 6 inches, he’d be a “really short” James Bond.
“Ultimately as a young British lad who loves cinema, I’d love to be James Bond. So y’know, I’m just putting that out there. I mean I look pretty good in a suit! I’d be like a really short James Bond,” Tom Holland said on Variety Award Circuit podcast.
Besides Spider-Man, the actor has also earned high praise for his role in Netflix’s The Devil All the Time.
The official Netflix summary of The Devil All the Time says:
Some people are just born to be buried.
In Knockemstiff, Ohio and its neighbouring backwoods, sinister characters — an unholy preacher (Robert Pattinson), twisted couple (Jason Clarke and Riley Keough), and crooked sheriff (Sebastian Stan) — converge around young Arvin Russell (Tom Holland) as he fights the evil forces that threaten him and his family. Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam war, director Antonio Campos’ THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted. Co-starring Bill Skarsgård, Mia Wasikowska, Harry Melling, Haley Bennett, and Pokey LaFarge, this suspenseful, finely-woven tale is adapted from Donald Ray Pollock’s award-winning novel.
Holland will be next seen in the third instalment of the Spider-Man franchise. He is also set to star in the crime drama, Cherry where he will join hands with the Russo Brothers of Avengers: Endgame fame.
