When speaking with United Kingdom newspaper the Daily Star, Smith told reporters he has his eye on a newcomer and the new favorite may come as a surprise to most.

The New York Post's Page Six reports that the British actor, 49, is set to Wednesday in the eagerly-anticipated 007 movie "Bond 25", which is set for a November 2019 release, hot on the heels of James' romance with Bond girl Lea Seydoux's character Madeleine Swann in the last movie. If they want a younger Bond then why not?

The internet is definitely in favour of Harry Styles being cast as 007.

Harry Styles is the latest name to be linked to James Bond, after the former One Direction star received the thumbs-up from a leading Bond boss.

Daniel Craig has played the role of James Bond since 2008.

"Harry could do it", Smith told the Daily Star.

Either way, Harry would have to wait for his chance at playing 'Bond, James Bond, ' because Daniel Craig has agreed to do one more film.

Spectre film editor Lee Smith has gotten the rumour mill going on the connection between Styles and the Bond series.

Smith is tight with Christopher Nolan, who's slotted to be the next Bond director.

A controversial choice, but Smith came to his defence by saying Styles' role in Nolan's WW2 epic, Dunkirk showed his potential despite a lack of experience. He's an exceptional talent and a complete natural on camera, ' the man praised the singer during an interview.

In the most-recent Bond movie, 2015's "Spectre", Craig's love interest was played by French actress Lea - one of many stunners to capture the character's eye. "You would never know that was his first film.he was really good and a genuinely charismatic fellow".

"Of course my daughter explained to me that you don't get any more famous than Harry Styles". If he wants to act, I can not imagine he would not have a great future'.
