Lucien Laviscount to feature as the new James Bond?
Actor Lucien Laviscount, who was recently seen playing the role of Alfie in the American series Emily in Paris, is one of the actors considered to play the role of James Bond. According to the reports, Laviscount has been under the radar of James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, and if all goes as planned he will replace Daniel Craig as the iconic character James Bond.
While no official announcement has been made so far, it has been reported that Barbara Broccoli is planning to cast Lucien Laviscount to play James Bond for the next 15 years. “Lucien ticks all of the boxes. He is a super-talented actor, is extremely handsome, and in the past 18 months has won lots of new fans since he joined Emily In Paris. Bond bosses are already saying how you can see him in the 007 tuxedo, how dapper and fitting to the role he will look. But, there is a sticking point, and that is Big Brother. Lucien appeared on the show at a time when his acting career was not as high-profile as it is now, but he was very popular then and has a fan base now which stretches generations. That is a dream for Barbara who is very taken with him,” revealed the source close to the development.
As Danial Craig recently retired from the iconic role, the makers are hoping to cast someone from the ethnic minority to play the part.
