Could “Divergent: Allegiant” star Theo James be the next James Bond 007? Nobody knows just yet, but this has been a circulating rumor ever since the actor bagged an endorsement deal for the fragrance line “Hugo Boss”.
According to Master Herald, the actor’s “Hugo Boss” campaign made him one of the actors considered to take the license to kill from current James Bond Daniel Craig. The website further lists down that Theo James is British and has a perfect smolder, making him an even more suitable candidate to play the role of the famous spy.
Bustle reports that other actors considered for the Bond role include Idris Alba, Michael Fassbender, and Tom Hiddleston, among others. Considering the diversity in this list, it may suggest that Theo’s chances to become Bond is higher.
With his career on a climb with “Divergent: Allegiant”, its sequel and spin-offs, and the possibility to become the next Bond, could Theo James be thinking of ditching his fiance Ruth Kearney?
Fan girls crushing on Theo James could hope, but the couple appears to be happier than ever despite their postponed wedding.
In a report by MTV, the actor was quoted in saying:
“The meaning of romance is spontaneity. I’m not great with gifts, but I’m good at random fun stuff, like taking trips and being able to say ’f–k it’ and go somewhere for a weekend.”
If that is not enough to swoon about, Master Herald further reports about how Theo James continue to be a good boyfriend to his lady love Ruth. During the actor’s shoot in Prague last November for the film “Underworld: Next Generation”, he and Ruth were spotted packing some PDAs. This scene definitely does not indicate that the couple’s relationship is in the rocks.
Meanwhile, rumors that suggest Theo is seeing actress and “Divergent: Allegiant” co-star Shailene Woodley appear to be false and are just part of the ploy to boost promotions for their upcoming film.
“Divergent: Allegiant” is scheduled to premiere on March 18.
